Aberfeldy

 

Aberfeldy is a beautiful Highland town full of fascinating treats for lovers of art, books, cinema, crafts, music and nature. Yet it retains a down-to-earth charm that brings visitors from miles around to enjoy its delights.

The award-winning Watermill Bookshop, Gallery, Café and Homewares store, which was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin, is a popular place to relax and enjoy some culture. There’s also the community-owned Birks Cinema, recently renovated to a high standard and re-opened by local lad (and Hollywood superstar) Alan Cumming. And nearby is Castle Menzies, once the seat of the Chiefs of Clan Menzies for over 500 years.

 

As with most Perthshire towns, adventure is never far away, with Highland Safaris, Wee Adventures and Splash White Water Rafting among those offering fun-filled and exciting tours and days out in the surrounding countryside. Other outdoor attractions include the world-renowned Birks of Aberfeldy walk and Cluny House Gardens, a “magical woodland garden” that boasts Britain’s widest conifer (at 11 metres).
