Things to do in and around Comrie
Previous winner of the Best Large Village award from Britain in Bloom, Comrie is a conservation village. Positioned on the Highland Boundary Fault, it has experienced more earth tremors than anyway else in the country; you can see a replica of the world’s first seismometer at the tiny Earthquake House in Nearby Dalrannoch. Visit the Riverside Garden Centre and Art Gallery, with its lovely range of Scottish arts and crafts.
The great outdoors
Take a circular wooded walk from the village past the Deil’s Cauldron, a tree-clad amphitheatre alongside the River Lednock, and up to the Melville Monument, an obelisk on Dun More hill that provides an excellent viewpoint.
Adventures with the kids
Enjoy a full day out with all the family at the Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre where you can get up close to a wide range of domestic farm animals as well as more exotic species. Let the kids run off some steam at the indoor and outside play areas, follow one or more of the scenic nature trails, or try your hand at a spot of fishing in the well-stocked lake. Discover the Nearby Crieff Visitor Centre with its fascinating insight into ancient Scottish life. Caithness Glass is based at the centre, so pop along to watch the glass makers in action, and even have a go at making some glassware of your own.
