Visit Blairgowrie

There are many places and things to do when you visit Blairgowrie and neighbouring Rattray.

Marvel at the world's tallest hedge at Meikleour. Don't miss Meigle's collection of Pictish sculpted stones, the most extensive in existence. Enjoy the sight of Scotland's largest waterwheel in action at Keathbank Mill and museum, which also contains a heraldic workshop and model railway, or listen to stirring tales at Glamis Castle, a setting for 'Macbeth' and said to be Scotland's most haunted castle. The MacBeth Experience is one you don’t want to miss in nearby Bankfoot, which will help you understand some of the history of this region. To visit Blairgowrie means you must sample the local soft fruit in summer. The area is home to the world's finest raspberries, together with many other soft fruits grown locally. There are several farms in the district where you can drop by and 'picking your own' fruit.

Visitors need not leave their pets behind as Haer Cairn boarding kennels, rurally situated and overlooking the rolling countryside toward the distant Sidlaw Hills, provide first class accommodation for your dog or cat.

There are many beautiful walks in this part of Scotland and Strathbraan Treks provide guided walks throughout Perthshire, each one accompanied by an experienced and fully trained Guide who will help you discover some of Scotland's hidden natural treasures.

If you believe your ancestors came from this part of Scotland you will find a visit to the Genealogy Centre of great interest. The railway service was closed to passengers in 1951.
