Mini guide to Aberfeldy

     

Located in Perthshire close to the River Tay, the relatively small burgh of Aberfeldy has something of a name for itself in oatmeal production. It's also famous for having been mentioned in the poem 'The Birks of Aberfeldy' by the legendary Scotsman, Robert Burns, and in the popular 'Loch Tay Boat Song'.

The town and its surrounding areas offer traditional charm and a gentle unspoiled pace of life that make it an ideal destination for visitors seeking a relaxing break. The most historic and famous building in Aberfeldy is Castle Menzies, a popular attraction with visitors all year round. This magnificent construction was built in the late 16th century and was originally home to the chiefs of the Menzies clan. Once occupied by Cromwell's army, the castle is now a clan centre for the Clan Menzies Society, who acquired it in 1957.

Around the town of Aberfeldy there's plenty for visitors to see including the famous bridge with its wartime background, the Black Watch memorial, an oatmeal mill and a busy whisky distillery. For sports lovers, the town has some great angling spots and its own golf course.

Within the town there's a number of big supermarkets as well as a host of independent retailers. Meanwhile, for dining there are Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants as well as bistros and traditional British establishments. For evening entertainment, visitors can spend a pleasant hour or two in one of the town's local pubs and sample some of the finest locally made whisky.

If you fancy a day out from Aberfeldy then you needn't travel far to find places of interest. The nearby villages of Fortingall, Killin and Kenmore combine the same sense of tradition and charm as Aberfeldy and are well worth a visit. Also nearby, the small town of Dull has remnants of the area's first visitors, dating back some 5,000 years as well as a historic 19th century church.

Drivers coming from Edinburgh should follow the A827, while those coming from Glasgow need to take the M80, M9 and A9 before joining the A827. The nearest railway station is Pitlochry, which has connections to larger Scottish destinations, while the closest air connections are at Edinburgh Airport.
