A circular road trip for a showery day and unpredictable weather. The Ring of Breadalbane was the name of a tourist mini bus that travelled both directions of the 72 mile circular route around Loch Tay & Loch Earn 4 times a day. Sadly it stopped in 2017 due to a lack of funding, but you can re-create this circular drive that takes in (or is close to) many of the villages, towns & places of interest featured below. Turn right at the end of Station Rd & head west out of St Fillans to Lochearnhead. Then taking a right hand turn up Glen Ogle to Killin. The road follows the north shore of Loch Tay to Kenmore/Acharn. Next stop is the market town of Aberfeldy and then up and over the Sma Glen takes you to Crieff, Comrie & then back to St Fillans & Loch Earn. There’s great scenery and lots to see on the way around - ideal for a day of changeable weather - around 2 hours non stop. There are shorter walking/cycling versions of the route on the Rings of Breadalbane website. www.breadalbane.org

8 minutes drive from The Bothy. Not the castle itself but the walk to the amazing Sequoia trees. The white castle was bought in 2005 by Russian steel tycoon Vladimir Lisin for £6.8 million - the castle is always in a state of readiness for him to visit with local staff on standby. The amazing trees are accessed from The Ross (on Walk 4 - take a right instead of left towards the end before you pass the flag of the day house) walk up past the earthquake house on your right and walk a mile up into the estate. Just after the 2nd cattle grid take a left up beside the mews house and the biggest tree is in front of you to the right - enjoy a hug!

Facebook update 24 Jul “If you plan to Visit Crieff and are not keen to eat in one of the bars, restaurants and cafes that are now open again, you can enjoy the takeaway of your choice in The Square.

My last visit here was in Jan 2019 when I purchased a tartan shawl in the Ross tartan for our biannual village Burns Supper - my husband was able to hire a kilt for the same function.

40 minutes drive from The Bothy. I just visited this castle with friends in Sep 2019 as many of my guests had been following it featuring in Outlander. It’s a great visitor experience for only £9 adults can enjoy a tour with free audio description at relevant points. There’s access almost all areas up close and unrestricted with stairs and passageways taking you almost to the top. My favourite was the great picture windows on the highest level and the audio description of how the Outlander crew created a Scottish village below. The village of Doune itself has great independent shops & eateries - there’s a great post office/information centre with historic information about Doune. A favourite local daytime eating place is The Buttercup Cafe.
