A perfect location for a stop over whilst travelling further North/South and a chance to relax and watch the sunset over the Glens.
We have a small friendly site situated in the heart of picturesque rural Perthshire, only 10 miles north from the fair city of Perth on the A93 to Braemar. Set amidst established trees with an abundance of wildlife. The country town of Blairgowrie is just 4 miles away, and with the beautiful view of the Grampian Mountains from the Park, its central location makes it an ideal base for touring throughout Perthshire and for fishing, golf, hill-walking, pony trekking and various other pursuits in the vicinity. There are numerous antique and craft centres within a short radius.
Places of Interest within Easy Reach:

Blairgowrie Highland Games are held annually in early September.
