Muiredge is in easy reach of great days out, whether you're after adventure, history or something for the kids. 

Near and far

Auchterder, Crieff and Muthill are all within a few miles radius and offer a host of quirky independent shops, cafes and galleries to potter around. Don't miss the Crieff's famous Strathearn Gallery.

Described as the gateway to the Highlands, this part of Perthshire is also a perfect base - or stop off - on your journey further north with Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park (35 minutes), Killin and Loch Tay (1 hour) and Pitlochry (50 mins) all within easy reach.

If history is your thing, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument (20 mins) are two of Scotland's most famous monuments and offer stunning hilltop views. Or Drummond Castle Gardens (15 mins) with its impressive formal gardens makes a lovely place to visit.


Family trips

For animal lovers, Blair Drummond Safari Park (25 mins) is not to be missed.  It's a whole day out with over 300 animals, safari drive through and a jurassic style dinosaur park to explore.   Auchingarrich Wildlife Park (30 mins) ia another great option whatever the weather with indoor and outdoor activities and the opportunity to meet and pet some of the animals.

Water babies will love Perth Leisure Pool (20 mins) with its flumes, toddler slide, bubble beds and outdoor lagoon. Under 5s go free. In the summer months the outdoor splash park at Helix Park and Kelpies  (35 mins) makes for a magical day out.

For kids who love climbing and running around, there are some great parks in the area. MacRosty Park in Crieff (20 mins) has a lovely children's play area while Glen's Adventure Park at Crieff Hydro (20 mins) features a huge wooden fort along with ziplines, pedal carts and swings. 


If you're looking for adventure, we are just 5 minutes from Skydive Strathallan, the largest skydiving centre in Scotland. They train 1500 people a year for the ultimate thrill! 

Next door at Gleneagles, the equestrian centre can arrange hacks for more experienced riders or horse riding lessons for little ones. 

Or if you fancy exploring on two wheels, Synergy Bike Hire in Auchterarder (5 mins) has a fleet of electric bikes - a great way to see this stunning area while 20 minutes away Comrie Croft mountain biking has trails for all abilities.

If open water is your thing, be sure to check out Willowgate Activity Centre near Perth (20 mins) for paddle boarding, wild swimming and kayaking.

If you are staying with us with a group of friends why not get in touch with Ian at Do It Outdoors.  He has a huge range of activities that he can either bring to you or you can visit his woodland setting.


Distillery visits

The area is awash with famous distilleries. If you're a whisky drinker, both The Tullibardine Whisky Distillery in Blackford (5 mins) and Glenturret Whisky Distillery in Crieff (15 mins) come highly recommended. For gin lovers, check out Perth Gin Distillery in Perth.


Rainy Day

There's no need for rain to stop play.  Why not try your hand at chocolate making at Chocolate Galley in Crieff or paint your own pottery at Crieff Ceramics which also has its own soft play, a rainy day classic for kids.  



And finally, there are too many gorgeous walks nearby for us to list them all but here are a few of our favourites.. all beautiful whatever the season.
