BLAIRGOWRIE & EAST PERTHSHIRE
Where you're always welcome!
Visiting Perthshire, the heart of Scotland, could not be easier. Easily accessible from all 3 international Airports; Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Your holiday in Perthshire begins here.
Touring Scotland couldn’t be easier than with a Central location, travel up through Glenshee (the Glen of the Fairies) to Braemar for the Braemar Gathering and onto Balmoral, Holiday home to the Royal Family and head on to Lochnagar for a sample of the Whisky. Back down through the Glens taking in some of our Stunning countryside. Or if you would rather bungee off a bridge, Sphere down a hill, white water rafting, gliding, learn to fly, drive a tank, archery, hot air balloon, a day out at the races, geocaching, mountain biking the list is endless and all you have to do is step outside!
Make your base with us and you’re within easy reach of just about anything you’d want to do in Scotland, in countryside or town, in the mountains on the doorstep or even by the sea, as the unspoilt Angus coastline is less than an hour‘s drive. It’s brilliant for a family holiday.
So, we like to think we tick a lot of boxes for the ideal Scottish break – especially if it involves unwinding, recharging and enjoying the breeze on the heather and the panorama of soaring hill-slopes. But, if you want to get active, walk and climb, golf, fish or trail-ride, visit historic places like Glamis Castle and Scone Palace or the family attractions in Dundee, shop or discover the gourmet delights here – then let’s take a look right now at what’s on offer.
If this doesn't tempt you to try Blairgowrie strawberries, nothing will!

PERTHSHIRE WILDLIFE BLOG
Connecting locals and holiday makers to the beautiful Perthshire countryside and wonderful wildlife that lives here.
Our swifts arrived back in mid-May this year – a bit later than usual due to poor weather in Southern Europe. The common swift (apus apus) migrates from southern & central Africa to breed here, migrating south again just three months later. They will now be sitting on two to four eggs, which should hatch in a few weeks' time.
