Comrie is Gaelic for “The place where rivers join”
Located in the centre of Scotland, this small conservation village in highland Perthshire is an ideal location for a wide range of outdoor activities. Comrie lies at the meeting point of three rivers, the area has been occupied since prehistoric times and was once the setting for one of the most northerly forts in the Roman Empire. Easily accessible from the south, it makes an excellent holiday destination both in its own right and as a base for touring.
The village caters for all needs with a range of shops including a bakery and a delicatessen. There are two hotels catering for non-residents, a small restaurant and an attractive café.
The village has a very successful “Comrie Fortnight” of activities in a middle of the summer and a 400 year old fire festival at New Year where burning trees are paraded through the village to drive out evil spirits.
One of the most attractive aspects of the village is its numerous marked walking trails, allowing the visitor to explore rivers, gorges and forests on the edge of the Highlands. For the more adventurous, the local Munro (Scottish mountains over 3000ft) Ben Chonzie can be climbed from the cottage and there is a range of hills and mountains to suit all abilities. The village website of www.comrie.org.uk gives comprehensive information on the locality and local events.
