The Tayside/Perthshire region
The Tayside / Perthshire / Perth and Kinross region
Situated in the very heart of beautiful Scotland, Perthshire is the perfect place to experience Scottish tradition and find all you expect of a great Scottish holiday. Most of Perthshire is little more than one hour by road or rail from Glasgow or Edinburgh, but it will feel like a world apart.
Towns and places to visit in Perthshire include Aberfeldy, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon, Auchterarder, Gleneagles and the Ochils, and Strathearn, Dunkeld and Birnam, Kinross-shire and Loch Leven, the Fair City of Perth, Pitlochry and Highland Perthshire, and some of the most scenic Scottish glens.
Take a walk in Perthshire this Autumn and discover why this beautiful region is known for it's beauty and woodland, home of the tallest trees, widest conifer and tallest hedge in Britain.
Use some of the 250 miles of walking paths to get to the Roman camps, medieval castles and whisky distilleries where you can spend a great day out discovering all about the detailed history.
Venture into the hills and mountains of the Cairngorms National Park in Highland Perthshire to see the wildlife - head out with a guide to learn more about the animals and see the best sights.
Once you've soaked up the stunning autumnal scenery of outdoor Perthshire, head into the city to find shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and theatres. Framed by two grand public parks and the striking Tay Street promenade, Perth is a lovely city offering the best in shopping, nightlife and culture.
There are so many exciting activities in Perthshire from gorge walking and fishing to pony trekking and sphereing.
The Gleneagles area
Golf: - No matter what your ability or experience, Perthshire has plenty to offer you by way of golf course challenges. From the mighty Gleneagles, only 2 miles away and one of the most magnificent and prestigious courses in the world, to the nine-hole course at nearby Kenmore, arguably one of the most beautiful, you will be thoroughly spoilt for choice. For golf course connoisseurs, St Andrews, 'the home of golf', is reachable in just over an hour's drive; while Muirfield, Carnoustie, and Turnberry, all first-class championship courses, are also easily accessible. Locally there are several other excellent courses - Auchterarder, Crieff, and White Moss all present a comfortable challenge for any golfer.
Water Sports: - Perthshire is awash with water-sport facilities - everything from jet-skis to white-water rafting, sailing on Loch Tay to riding the rapids at Grandtully or high action canoeing in rugged canyons. There are several well-established and experienced centres in the area to make all the necessary arrangements and to provide you with any training required.
Winter Sports: - Within an hour's drive, you can take to the slopes on skis or snowboards at the Glenshee, Aviemore, or Braemar Ski Centres, which between them have thirty-eight excellent runs and all provide daily and weekly lift passes, equipment hire, and tuition facilities. The surrounding mountains also offer plenty of scope for snow and ice climbing, or for an altogether more gentle pursuit, venture indoors to the curling rink in Perth and enjoy one of Scotland's traditional winter sports.
Walking: - Duchally lies at the gateway to the Highlands and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural scenery that Scotland has to offer. The Sma Glen, Glen Quaich, and Glen Lyon, three of the most spectacular areas in Perthshire, are invitingly close and offer ample opportunities for ramblers and hikers of average ability and ambition. For the more adventurous, Ben Lawers, Schiehallionand the Tarmachan Ridge are among the higher, technically challenging mountain itineraries in the immediate vicinity. If you simply prefer a gentle stroll, pathways by Loch Tay, Loch Earn, or Loch Katrine will provide a wealth of panoramic views and superb photographic opportunities.
Fishing: - Whether you are a novice or a seasoned salmon angler there are plenty of waters in Perthshire to lure you onto the banks. Some of the finest trout lochs and salmon beats in Scotland are only a short drive away from the estate. For the novice, there are a number of casting clinics, clubs, and stocked ponds where you can learn to enjoy the skills and thrills of angling.
Museums: - The largest Roman station in Britain, the Ardoch Camp, is situated at Braco, a few minutes drive from Duchally. You can also visit the Crannog Centre on Loch Tay and experience life as an ancient loch-dweller in their thatched island homes. Perth Museum is one of the oldest in Britain and the Black Watch Museum in Perth, exhibits nearly three centuries of Military History. There are also clan museums, museums of farming, and the oldest public library in Scotland is situated in Abernethy. The Jacobean battle sites at Killiecrankie and the infamous Bannockburn are in the area as well as nearby Glencoe, always a chilling location with its fascinating and fearful history.
Castles & Monuments: - Scotland has endured a long and eventful history, and there are numerous castles and monuments still proudly standing within the immediate area - Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument of 'Braveheart' fame, Glamis Castle, the childhood home of the late Queen Mother, or Blair Castle depicting life from the 16th century. From the impressive and magnificent Edinburgh Castle, only an hour away by car, with its museums and dramatic displays, to the solitude of the Island Castle on Loch Leven where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, you can experience the lives of your ancestors - or perhaps they were your enemies?
Gardens & Parks: - Not surprisingly, Perthshire has a magnificent variety of gardens to visit. There is Drummond Castle with its formal Italian garden; the natural heather collection at Bells Cherrybank in Perth; the woodland and Himalayan delights at Cluny, or the formal gardens in the grounds of the stately home at Kinross. Why not take a walk in the woodland gardens at the Hermitage near Dunkeld and visit the cathedral or the Beatrix Potter Centre on the same tour.
Distilleries: - No visit to this part of Scotland would be complete without an excursion to one of the many distilleries in the area. Duchally is located at the start of the 'Whisky Trail' which runs up through the Highlands to Spey-side and passes some of the most recognised names in the wonderful world of Scotch whisky. The new Tullibardine distillery in Blackford is definitely worth a visit and in the immediate area; there are the Famous Grouse and Aberfeldy Distilleries, with both wonderful visitor centres and an opportunity to 'tak a wee dram'. The Edradour at Pitlochry is the smallest and one of the oldest distilleries in the country.
Visitor Centres: - There are far too many visitor centres to list them all here, but you can choose from a wide variety including - heather jewellery, crystal, potteries, glassware, knitwear, horn carving, jute production and power, to name just a few. The newly re-furbished Stanley Mills, on the banks of the River Tay presents life in the mill as it was a hundred years ago. There are numerous wildlife centres - the award winning wildlife attraction set in the hills at Auchingarrich, the deer park at Glengoulandie, bird watching at the Loch of the Lowes near Dunkeld, and the nature reserve run by RSPB at Vane Farm. You can also take a trip with Highland Adventure Safaris in Aberfeldy that will take you off road in search of wildlife.
Tours: - Perthshire is the perfect base from which to embark upon organised and guided tours, either in the area or further afield, and a wide variety of special interests are catered for. The natural history and Scottish history tours are particularly popular; however, art and crafts, antiques, architecture, food and drink are also well featured on a number of interesting excursions.

Its always pleasing to receive a review such as this. The staff at Duchally work extremely hard to maintain standards. As the only privately rented two bedroomed lodge on the estate we believe we represent excellent value for money.
