The Tayside/Perthshire region
GLEN LYON is famous for its breathtaking scenery and is arguably one of the most beautiful, yet easily reached areas in Scotland. The glen is perfect for walkers, with a choice of riverside and woodland walks and for the more energetic, there are mountains to climb, including Ben Lawers, Schiehallion and a circuit of four Munros known as the Glen Lyon Horseshoe. Cyclists enjoy the quiet road as well as the off road tracks in the area.
Three and a half miles to the west of Craigeanie is Bridge of Balgie, which has a post office, a charming tea room, a village shop selling basic groceries and an art gallery. There are some beautiful walks from here including a gorge walk and a “walk for wee folk” created with the help of the local primary school children.
Nearby to the east is the conservation village of Fortingall, a pretty village with thatched cottages, arts and crafts architecture and an ancient yew tree said to be the oldest living thing in Europe. The award winning Fortingall Hotel has an excellent restaurant and bar serving coffees, lunches and evening meals. We are told by past guests that Friday nights in the bar at the Fortingall Hotel is a night not to be missed! Live music and sing alongs accompanied by good food and drink and lots of fun and laughter.
The charming and popular village of Kenmore, sits at the head of Loch Tay and has a gift shop, delicatessen, restaurant, bistro and coffee shop, and provides access to a variety of activities including golf, horse riding, white-water rafting, sailing and kayaking. The loch has a lovely beach which is great for picnics and barbecues and ideal for paddling for the children.

We spent a wonderful few days relaxing at Craigieanie Farmhouse. It really is a true home from home holiday house! Extremely comfortable throughout and superbly equipped.
