Aberfeldy is our local small market town. It is the original old market town for Highland Perthshire serving a widely scattered rural population. It is the geographical Heart of Scotland, and an ideal centre for touring. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow are about one and a half hours drive away. The clan chieftains of Menzies, and Campbell, once ruled the area. But latterly families like the Wills of tobacco fame, Sir Donald Currie the shipping magnate, Nairns of the linoleum empire, have lived in the area, and now J K Rowlings of Harry Potter fame, has her holiday home at Killiechassie, 1 mile from Castle Menzies.
Other Activities: cycling, hill climbing, water sports
Golf: Locally, golfers can chose from the challenging 18 holes around the magnificent James Braid course at Taymouth Castle, the 18 hole layout at Aberfeldy by the Tay or the attractive 9 holes at Kenmore and Strathtay. Within a half-hour plus drive there are a further 5 splendid 18-hole golf courses; at Pitlochry, Crieff, Killin, Dunkeld and Blairgowrie (Rosemount). Gleneagles around 45 minutes and St Andrews just over one hour away via Dundee.
