A feast of autumn colours in the Scottish Landscape


Walkers
can benefit from the many routes available to suit all ages and levels of ability. The experienced walker can enjoy the challenge of the local Cateran Trail - a long distance staged route which follows in the steps of the marauding clans and cattle thieves of the Highlands. For the real enthusiast, hill walking and climbing abound. Of the 284 Munros (mountains over 3000 feet) in Scotland, 12 or more can be found in the vicinity of Glenshee about 16 miles north of Glenisla.

For those with an interest in Wildlife and Bird watching, the nearby Loch of Lintrathen is an internationally important wetland reserve for wintering wildfowl. In summer, ospreys have been known to fish the loch. These birds of prey can be observed nesting at the Loch of the Lowes by Dunkeld. There is a wide range of wildlife and different species to regularly spot in the surrounding area - including red squirrels and deer.

The Cyclist can choose between travelling on the relatively
traffic-free roads that wind through breathtaking scenery or the numerous forest tracks and mountain trails.

Horse riding can be arranged at the nearby Glenmarkie riding stables.

Golfers have the choice of over 40 courses in Perthshire and
Angus. These include several championship courses, St Andrews, Carnoustie and Rosemount (Blairgowrie), to name but three. We can make the necessary arrangements for booking a day's play.

Anglers can obtain permits to fish for brown trout and salmon on the many rivers, lochs and reservoirs in the area. The countryside also proves ideal for Stalking, Hunting and Shooting opportunities.

In winter, Downhill Skiing/Snow Boarding takes place on the slopes of Glenshee and Glenisla has its own Cross Country Ski Trails.

History and Scottish Heritage stands all about. Notable castles, stately homes and places of historical interest are located throughout the region and are open to the public during the summer months. Visit Glamis Castle (Home to the Earls of Strathmore and a royal residence since 1372): Scone Palace (Where Scottish Kings were crowned): Blair Castle (Ancient seat of the Dukes of Atholl with the only private army still in the UK): Fasque House (Home of the Gladstone family): Dunkeld Cathedral (Early centre for Scottish Christianity): Kirriemuir (The birthplace of J. M. Barrie ): Angus Folk Museum in Glamis (Showing how country folk lived in years gone by):

Blair Castle Meigle Pictish Museum (with its display of ancient carved stones)
Corgarff Castle (which played a prominent role in the Jacobite uprisings of 1715 and 1745): and, of course, Balmoral Castle (our present Queen's Scottish royal residence).
