Blairgowrie is one of the largest towns in the county of Perthshire.

It sits 18 miles directly north of Perth and lies on the southwest side of the River Ericht.

Historically famous for growing flax, spinning mills were peppered across the town, you can still see many of them today. Blairgowrie’s industry is now focused on growing soft fruit.

Also known as the gateway to Glenshee, which caters for many year-round outdoor activities such as golfing, mountain biking, skiing, abseiling, hand gliding and paragliding.

There are many enjoyable walks around the Blairgowrie, one in particular takes you along the Ardblair Trail to Darroch Woods otherwise know as the bluebell woods. Blairgowrie is also the starting point for the Cateran Trail, a 60 mile circular around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers.

There are many pubs, restaurants, and shops on hand to enjoy.
