Walks from the hotel
If you enjoy walking there are some excellent local walks.
- The first I suggest is a walk up and over the crest of Alyth Hill and back in a wide circle to the hotel. It takes about 1hour and 20 minutes and is well worth it, particularly on a beautiful day. Simply walk directly up hill from the end of the hotel drive until you reach a gate at the top, then turn left to crest the hill passing the beacon on your left. Let the path bring you back down the hill again crossing though a couple of fields at the bottom to bring you back to the start of the hotel drive. (The only strenuous part of this walk is the first part as you climb the hill, the rest is easy).
- If the weather isn’t so great there is beautiful walk through the broadleaf woodland along Alyth Burn this is called the Den of Alyth. It takes about an hour to stroll along a well trodden path through the trees, across the bridge of Tully at the far end and back along on the other side of the burn back to the Car park.
- The Cateran Trail - This is a monster of a walk that at its full length is 54 miles long and tends to take 4 or 5 days to do the whole circle. It is very clearly marked and you can join it from the bottom of the hotel drive. The route takes you in to the Cairngorm National Park and over to Glenisla, Glenshee, Enochdhu, Kirkmichael and Blairgowrie www.caterantrail.com.
Locally it is well worth visiting Glamis Castle and Scone Palace, both are stunningly beautiful and steeped in Scottish Royal history. We hold brochures and information on both as well as many other excellent visitor attractions. We also have a collection of maps that we are happy to lend out, so please ask.
Our local and knowledgeable staff can also be a great help to you when planning an itinerary, I hope you will come to know us all during the course of your stay.
