Situated in the conservation village of Birnam by Dunkeld and only about an hour's drive from both Glasgow and Edinburgh, Erigmore is the ideal base for touring Scotland. However, if your idea of a perfect holiday is to simply relax and explore nearby the local area has plenty to offer.
The sister towns of Birnam and Dunkeld are only a short stroll away on opposite banks of the river. The Victorian village of Birnam is home to the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Garden which celebrates the life and characters of the well loved author and illustrator. Dunkeld, a historic cathedral town and picturesque National Trust village offers fine shops, galleries, antiques and quality food and gifts
Erigmore is fun for family holidays, or groups of friends but also ideal for those wishing a quiet retreat or simply to relax and enjoy nature at its best.
First class leisure facilities including a 40ft swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi, a warm and inviting restaurant and bar offering an imaginative menu using fresh local produce, quality accommodation and an idyllic setting in beautiful countryside make Erigmore an excellent choice for your holiday in the heart of Perthshire.
At the heart of Erigmore is an impressive Victorian mansion from which the Estate takes its name. Famous names from history including Dickens, Disraeli and the artist Millais all have connections with the House.
The surrounding area is also steeped in history including the Birnam Oak, the last surviving part of the ancient forest as described by Shakespeare in Macbeth, a visit to which is a must.
Nature is at its most beautiful around Erigmore - marvel at the spectacularly large Douglas Firs and look out for salmon at the River Braan's famous salmon leap. Just taking time to explore all nature has to offer with a woodland walk around the estate can uncover a surprising wealth of wildlife, flowers, trees and birds.
Different seasons offer their own unique charm, from thick winter frosts glistening on branches, to blue bells carpeting the woods in Spring, beautiful flora and fauna in summer and a glorious display of Autumn in Big Tree Country.
Erigmore is truly a holiday destination for all seasons.
