What can I do in the area?
There is lots to see and do around Craigellie; it is in a beautiful part of Perthshire and well situated to enjoy much of what Scotland has to offer.

To the east you have the city of Dundee with its regenerated waterfront; the historic, university town of St Andrews and the east coast beaches. To the south the fair city of Perth on the River Tay, Fife with its picturesque coastal villages, Stirling and Edinburgh; and to the west the popular tourist towns of Aberfeldy, Pitlochry and Dunkeld, on the A9 leading to Blair Atholl and the House of Bruar.
