Valley of Plenty

Strathearn is full of exciting things to do and see.  Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, history buff, art lover or just like a wander, there’ll be something to keep you entertained. Here are some of our favourites.

 

Auchingarrich

Located just a few miles away, Auchingarrich is fun for all the family.  With covered walk ways and play barns you can visit whatever the weather.  Visitors can experience everything from holding a little chick to milking a cow to having a coffee while taking in the breath-taking views of the Ochil’s.   



Visit a Distillery

Glenturret Distillery on the edge of Crieff is Scotlands oldest working distillery, dating back to the 17th century!  The small team (just five pairs of hands) ensures every batch delivers the unique Glenturret taste.  Tours are available daily and of course have a few obligitory tasters. Feeling a bit peckish? Their restaurant is perfect for lunch or just chilling with a coffee on one of their comfy couches.

Bagging a Munro

If you love hill walking and fancy bagging a munro or two, you’re in the right area.  There are three munros within a 30 minute drive of Galvelmore.  The closest, Ben Chonzie, only 7 miles away in Comrie, Ben Vorlic and Stuc a’ Chroin are on the south side of St Fillans around 12 miles. Check out Walk the Highlands for details on these and other walks nearby.  Prefer to have a guide? Emily from Emily's Wild Adventures  can help you.

Discover some history (Cultybraggan)

The only WW2 Prisioner of War camp open to the public in Scotland, Cultybraggan (aka Camp 21) oozes history.  Once used to house high risk German POW's in the 1940's, most of the orginial nissan huts are still standing.  Bought by the village of Comrie, many are now used for individual enterprises, others have been preserved to show what life as a POW would have been like.  Open daily all year round for self guided tours and every Sunday in the summer for guided tours.
