Welcome to

Perthshire

The real heart of Scotland, where Highland and Lowland meet. Mountains and glens lie to the north. Below them are attractive and old-established towns, along with the vibrant cultural and historical hub of the city of Perth. Towns and Villages Perthshire’s towns are clustered around the Highland line, with long-established little resorts like Dunkeld, Pitlochry and Crieff attracting generations of visitors. They offer plenty to do and see, from Pitlochry’s Festival Theatre to Crieff’s Famous Grouse Experience. Speciality shopping for crafts and antiques, say, at Dunkeld or Aberfeldy, is another feature, while smaller communities such as Killin or Comrie also have lots to offer.

Easy Touring The long east-west glens and the speedy A9 ‘Highland Road’ make for rewarding circular day tours, wherever your holiday base. Link up attractions such as Scone Palace on the outskirts of Perth with Blair Castle on the A9 and Castle Menzies near Aberfeldy for a castlevisiting excursion. Or go from Edradour Distillery in Pitlochry via Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery to Glenturret

How to use this folder This folder is full of information on the best places to visit in this area. At the front you will find leaflets and information on local attractions, followed by a new section on More Great Things to See & Do and Places to Eat. For information on attractions further afield, have a look at the national map and ‘Things to See and Do in the Rest of Scotland’ listing at the centre of this folder. This is followed by leaflets on other attractions, many of which may be within easy reach of where you are staying.

Distillery in Crieff for a journey round some fine malt whiskies! The Queen’s View over Loch Tummel and the Scottish Crannog Centre are just two of the other ‘must-sees’ you can fit in on the way.

Trees and Gardens Around 13% of the landscape of Perthshire is forested. This is ‘Big Tree Country’. Don’t miss the world’s tallest hedge at Meikleour near Blairgowrie, or the oldest living tree in Europe - a yew at Fortingall in Glen Lyon. A tour round Perthshire takes you round the finest gardens, from the Meconopsis, the famous blue poppies of Branklyn, via the clipped formality of Drummond Gardens, to the glorious rhododendrons of Glendoick.

Activities and Adventures Gleneagles and Rosemount (Blairgowrie) head a long list of parkland courses in glorious settings.

as the Perthshire Highlands Golf Ticket and the Perthshire Green Card make this area a great golfing choice. Anglers have the Tay, the Earn, Isla and Ericht, and one of Scotland’s best-known trout-fishing lochs Loch Leven - plus a big range of hill lochs. Watersports companies offer activites including white-water rafting down to the rapids at Grandtully. On land, activity providers organise everything from upland Perthshire safaris to ‘sphereing’ and bungee jumping.

Shopping Perth offers an excellent shopping choice with its mix of ‘High Street’ and speciality stores. Elsewhere look out for the choice of local businesses - crafts, countrywear, gifts, delicatessens - in towns such as Aberfeldy and Crieff, Auchterarder and Blairgowrie.

Walking and Waterfalls Serious hillwalkers have a great choice of high tops, from the high-level reaches of the Carn Marig group north of Glen Lyon to the lonely and wild peaks around Beinn a’ Ghlo in Atholl. But there is plenty at lower level as well. Take a gentle stroll on Lady Mary’s Walk at Crieff - just one of many walks in this area. Try the Birks of Aberfeldy and the Falls of Moness above Aberfeldy, or the Falls of Braan at the Hermitage by Dunkeld. Endless choice and plenty of wildlife too, from red squirrel to leaping salmon.

aberfeldy & loch tay

life the way it should be

Ideally located in the geographic centre of Scotland, less than 2 hours from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and the West Coast... and well worth the visit! The Aberfeldy & Loch Tay area is a delight at all times of year. The fresh buds of spring blossom through to the warm, lazy days of summer and the spectacular colours of autumn before the clear, sharp days of winter. There’s always something happening, always something new to see and enjoy.

Perthshire’s Cairn o’Mohr Fruit Winery and Ciderhouse The Cairn o Mohr winery started out from nothing and a demijohn in 1987. The winery is set around an 18th century steading in a charming little spot in the country. Here we produce award winning fruit wines from the berries, leaves and flowers that grow around the rolling hills of Perthshire, usually. We now produce cider from local apples.

What is there anyway?

The Cairn o’ Mohr Range We make real fruit wines

You don’t need grapes to make good wine you know. At the Cairn O’ Mohr winery we make wine out of strawberries, raspberries, brambles and lots of other things that grow fine right here in Scotland. Join us on facebook to see what our fans are saying and find out what’s happening at the winery this week Cider, dry, 5% The only true Scottish cider made from the famous apples of the Carse of Gowrie & nearby. Wild elderberry, rich and fruity, 13.3% Just the sweetest little thing, bounding with rich flavours like a deer bounding over the fields after being surprised by a man with a gun but it was only a stick. Dry at the end like a well you know. Strawberry, medium sweet, 13.3% A strawberry staccato with a frothy creamy splurge. Nearly a pound of strawberries in every bottle. The singular fleshy, voluptuousness of the strawberry berry is transformed into this tear releasing little heartbreaker that dances on life like a tiara twinkling as it reflects the light of lo, one of Jupiter’s moons (oh, shut up) Raspberry, medium, 13.3% Full, fresh picked raspberry flavour. A towering inferno of a fruit wine, a giant stamping on people and other things like trees and that, an 18 foot alligator unseen lurking in the swamp, a malevolent shrieking eagle blocking out the sun. Oh, and it won the national fruit wine awards once. Gooseberry, medium, 13.3% A bit like a kind of juicy, lemony spicy thing with the gooseberries flying in at the end in a light furry way. Sweetish with some bite Bramble wine, dry and spicy This is our drier red, can be a bit feisty, can be a bit awkward. Give it a smack if it’s misbehaving. Has picked up quite a zealous following considering it’s waywardness. For those who persevere they may find themselves cast adrift on a purple sea in a moderate swell. Cairn o’ Mohr regular wines can be a little on the strong side for some mortals, coming in at around about 13.3%, so in the interest of keeping everyone happy without necessarily breaking into song tonelessly, we’ve introduced some lighter ones Oddly we do the occasional one Limited editions and seasonal ones such as Rhubarb and various berry basket wines. The ‘Clever Currant’ blackcurrant and redcurrant was popular. It’s finished for now but the Shrubbery is on the go as I write this.

Oak leaf wines These are a couple of recipes from way back. We hire a squad of trained monkeys from Edinburgh zoo, minimum wage, hey, they’re happy for the work. They pick loads of Oak leaves for us and we make a strong, sweet, green leaf tea with oranges and lemons mixed in, ferment them all together in the tank then top it with a run of elderflower. Very easy drinking, fruity and aromatic. Thank you monkeys. Spring oak leaf, medium sweet, 13.3% Soft as a mattress, the soft kind. Juicy fruity, it blooms and sparkles fragrantly as it meanders its way gracefully over and down to you know where (your stomach) Autumn oak leaf, medium dry This is a drier, less fattening version, all soft focus, poetry and theological discussion by the fireplace in slippers, or giving vent to fits of mirth over something Stephen Fry said, or similar. Sparklies Oak and Elder, medium, 12.5% A crackling oak leaf and elderflower wine that Judith and I first made for our wedding 100 years ago, ouch, why is it always the same shin? Still going strong apart from a couple of little niggles. A tasty wine. I like it with my tea. Try with seafood or smoked salmon. Incidently if you’re thinking of getting married or even staying married, the Oak and Elder is what you should be having, it’s better than boring old, you know who. Strawbubbly, medium sweet, 11% A delicious blend of strawberries and elderflowers This creation came about when Judith took to blending the strawberry wine with our non alcoholic elderflower in order to beat me at backgammon on a Friday night. The flavours worked well together and certainly seemed to give her an advantage so she kind of blended it up permanent like. I’ll be back! I’ve got her on chinese chequers though (raspberry full strength) Braes o Gowrie This isn’t alcoholic at all. It’s elderflowers picked by desperate illegal immigrants from the Sidlaw hills then hand stripped by country style maidens on their thighs. Works a treat. Mildly hypnotic.

notes: If I open a bottle of my wine the cap is rarely replaced. Don’t be like me though, you be good. Some like to drink them as they would a liqueur. Just to say they do keep well up to a week in the fridge. The year produced is indicated by the last two digits on the batch code.

FORT WILLIAM TO MALLAIG Monday 9th May to Friday 28th October 2016 The line used in filming the Harry Potter movies.

“The World’s Greatest Railway Journey” Voted By Wanderlust Magazine

THE JOURNEY Fort William to Mallaig Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting at the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis!

The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan. Beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig. You may alight at Arisaig by request to the guard. From here, on a clear summer’s day, you can see the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films “Highlander” and “Local Hero”.
