Our next trip involved us heading south on the A826 towards Crieff and then heading east on the A822 to Dunkeld. This village is well worth a walk around. We then headed for Blairgowrie, using the A923, where we had lunch and another walk around. We then headed for Pitlochry, along the A93/A924 passing through Kirkmichael. The scenery along this road is wonderful. We had a stroll around Pitlochry and then headed south on the A9 towards Perth and turned off onto the A827 back to Aberfeldy. Best Things About the Resort:The wonderful scenery, relaxing atmosphere and friendly people.
The resort is set back from the main road in open parkland and is therefore very safe for children. The only problem area may be the duck pond.
Very central for exploring Perthshire and the Highlands. It is only a few miles from the A9 which is the main north - south road.Resort Experience:The resort itself is based around the main building which contains all the facilities such as indoor pool, snooker room, bar and restaurant. The cottages are accessed by a system of narrow roads and they are well spread out around the 35 acres of the site. They are generally in small blocks of three or four cottages. There are no on-site shops; the closest ones are to be found a few hundred metres down the road in Aberfeldy. There are, however, on-site laundry facilities. The water in the indoor pool was lovely and warm and the whirlpool was open to the pool which meant you did not have to climb out of one to get into the other. There is also a steam room and solarium. There is a snooker room with two full sized snooker tables. There is a £5 returnable deposit and each game costs £2. Also available are badminton, indoor bowls, squash, pool and table tennis. The entertainment when we were there consisted of the usual welcome party, a quiz night and a karaoke evening.

The hotel is rather strange in that the reception is not part of the hotel. Reception is at the timeshare clubhouse. The main problem with this is in regards to security as anyone can enter the hotel without being seen by the staff. For this reason the front doors of the hotel close around 23:00 and if you require access after this time you must make prior arrangements; otherwise you could find yourself locked out.
The hotel grounds are excellent and the timeshare facilities such as the swimming pool and games room can be used.
