We visited as a family group with an age range from baby to 72. Unfortuately, it was a cold, drizzly day but that didn't detract from our enjoyment. We had a fabulous lunch in the Coffee Shop with delicious homemade soup and sandwiches which set us up for the awaiting chill. The Scottish wild cats were a particular favourite - we watched their feeding time and a knowledgeable member of staff told us about them.
At the end we visited the gift shop which was opened up specially for us. There is a colony of leaf ants to be viewed - realy interesting to see and again there was a member of staff able to tell us about them.

A last-minute addition to our weekend, my friend suggested that this would be a nice spot for a few hours. We did the ''basic'' tour, which I have to say was incredibly informative, delivered by Sheenagh (sp?). Fast-paced, but with plenty of room to ask questions, she seemed to be a real font of knowledge on the subject.
Impressed by the statue for Towser, their master catter, who caught around 28,000 cats during the course of his life.
To finish, we got a couple of different whiskies to taste. I defnitely recommend the whisky fudge and chocolate from the shop, a great memento of an excellent couple of hours.
I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a couple of hours spent in an interesting surrounding.

Very Traditional little village store with a coffee shop out the back. Serves good coffee and great ice cream. The owner is happy to chat about the history of the building and St Fillans. This is what tourism and travel is all about. Do yourself a favour and visit.

Surrounded by trees and greenery. There is a very well made wooden stair way down to the cauldron. Could be slippy when wet. Quite a climb but worth it. Especially if you are lucky enough to see a red squirrel. We did. There is a small car park next to the site. The road to the Deil's Cauldron is narrow but has passing places.

Loads of parking is at lower end in Taylor Park. See road sign posts.This park is wonderful for kids as has had a Lottery funded refurb. Children's huge playground area which has water facilities too. It is kept so clean and so well looked after by the residents and visitors. Has to be visited to be believed. Nice café on site too. Enjoy!

Walked the circular route from Comrie starting at the Deil's Cauldron, follow the path up to the Melville monument and then its a straightforward loop back into the Glen and back to the village via the Lednock millennium footpath. You get a sense of contrast with the forest , then the wooded hill and the open glen looking up to the hills. Wear good boots and does require some fitness

We've been here a few times but this was our first visit in autumn. The Gardens never disappoint, it really is a beautiful place. And not expensive at all.

Do It Outdoors delivers unique and wild outdoor activities. We deliver Eco Team building events,bushcraft courses, sweat lodges, Archery, Kids Parties, Fly Fishing Instruction. We cater for parent and child , adults and parties.
Great fun day with my boy and other dads/sons catching a fish and cooking it. A very friendly and knowledgeable host in Ian who patiently helped us catch a beautiful trout and then a short walk into the woods to build a fire (sheltered under a huge open air tepee) to cook the fish. Kids learnt the correct materials for a fire and how to start a cooking fire. Would recommend for the day, excellent value!

Scotland's oldest lending library sits in a tranquil rural location beside the River Earn. Founded in 1680 by David Drummond 3rd Lord Madertie, with a school, at Innerpeffray near Crieff in rural Perthshire.Today thinking people from across the world come to enjoy the peaceful surroundings, to explore the social heritage captured in its Borrower's Register, and turn the pages to be inspired by books dating from four centuries.
This little corner of Scotland is slightly off the beaten track but well worth visiting: this library is one of the oldest public Libraries in Europe (17th century) and they have the entire collection preserved. The buildings are wonderfully preserved and look as if they...MoreThank you very much for your review and recommendation to history lovers.

We visited during Perthshire's Doors Open event so guided tours were available, a NAAFI van for hot drinks (and biscuits!!), lots of military vehicles of WW2 era, Exhibitions about rationing, clothing and conditions of the time.
Re-enactments of German POW's being marched into camp, playing football against the guards had great authenticity to them. Some of the tin huts were equipped with beds and uniforms and personal possessions to illustrate what life was like for the prisoners.
Cultybraggan Camp 21 is the only one of its kind in the UK as it is community owned and it is crying out for investment and development - if it can avoid commercialisation and retain authenticity it could be one of the country's best places to visit to learn about the social conditions of WW2 as experienced by the prisoners and the people of the rural town of Comrie.
