There is a diverse range of sporting activities available in the area (golfing, fishing, off road driving, white water rafting, horse riding, swimming, ice skating). Perthshire has some interesting gardens to visit and fabulous castles and historic sites in the area (Scone Palace, Blair Castle, Stirling Castle, Glamis Castle). Children will love a visit to Beatrix Potter's Garden at Birnam and the Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre where they can feed animals too.
For those who enjoy the attractions of the city, Perth (just 7 miles away) has much to offer with a theatre, new concert hall, cinema, museum and art gallery. It also has great shopping and some excellent restaurants and cafes. This is a great base from which to explore all of Perthshire - Crieff, Dunkeld and Aberfeldy are within 30 mins drive. Edinburgh is just over an hour away by car (or take the train from Perth right into the city centre) - Scotland's capital city is well worth a day trip. There is such a wealth of outdoor and indoor attractions and activities that you are sure to want to return the following year!
