Useful Links

Here are some links that might be useful in planning your trip



Things to Do –

  • Theatre & Concerts:   Perth, Dundee and Fife have several venues that attract good music and theatre acts for all ages, as well as local productions.   It’s always disappointing to spot a concert when you are on vacation but not be able to get a ticket.  Keep an eye on the links below to see if anything appeals to you.




  • Walking and Hiking
    • Munro Magic – All 282 Munros, 222 Corbetts and 222 Grahams are covered in detail including descriptions, pictures, location maps, walking routes, weather reports, and many tools to help you find all the mountain information you require.


  • Castles & Historic Sites:
    • Historic Environment Scotland look after most of the flagship sites (Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle) as well as those nearby (Elcho Castle – 10 mins away, Huntington Tower – 20 mins, St. Andrews – 35 mins).
    • On our doorstep, we have Abernethy Round Tower, one of only two in Scotland.  Admission is free and you can get the key from the local coffee shop beside it.
    • Tip – 
      • There is normally a reasonable admission charge for minor or local sites.  However, the flagship sites can be quite expensive, especially Edinburgh and Stirling Castles.
      • Historic Environment Scotland offer “Explorer” short-term passes that are really good value.    You can buy them at any site or in advance at their website.  They sometimes offer off-peak/low season discounts of 20% as well.    Click here for more details on Explorer Passes.
    • Other sites of interest could be Stanley Mills, Dunkeld Cathedral, Arbroath Abbey, Linlithgow Palace, Doune, Blackness or Aberdour Castles.  You could also create an itinerary to follow film locations if you are a fan of Outlander or Monty Python!


  • Golf:
    • Several courses available locally and within a short driving distance, including the flagship courses at St Andrews and Gleneagles.  It’s worth a drive to see the area even if you are not going to play as the settings are beautiful.  Details of courses can be found on the Scottish Golf website.  Use the drop down menu to select Fife or Perth as a Region.
    • A note on the Old Course at St Andrews.   Bookings to play at St Andrews are made many months in advance.  However, a ballot system is in place to accomodate short notice bookings.  Details can be found on their official website by clicking here.
