Situated on the banks of the River Ericht, Blairgowrie lies 11 miles east of Dunkeld on the A923 or can be accessed directly from Perth by taking the A93. Originally the town had an eminent linen weaving industry as the area was a centre for flax growing. Now it is the centre of the Perthshire soft fruit growing industry.

Lots to See and Do
The town is a popular base for golfers and anglers and is the gateway to Glenshee which offers year-round sports but is most famous for its ski centre.
Blairgowrie is an excellent centre for walkers, for instance the short walk to the 1862 steam turbine and water wheel at the Keathbank Jute Mill. It has walks to cater for all levels of experience and is the main starting point for the 5-day, 60-mile Cateran Trail. Also, the Loch of Lowes, a Scottish Wildlife Trust Reserve where you can watch otters and the occasional osprey, is situated nearby.
The tourist office is in Wellmeadow and buses run to Blairgowrie from Perth and Dundee. Hotels include the Angus Hotel and, further north, the Spittal of Glenshee Hotel, both of which serve good food.
The village of Alyth, 5 miles east of Blairgowrie off the A926, is most attractive having old bridges spanning the canal. Worth visiting is the 60-foot waterfall of Reekie Linn which lies north of Alyth of the B954. South of Alyth on the B954 is the village of Meigle which has many interesting 7th to 10th century early Christian and Pictish carved stones displayed in the museum.

|18-Nov-2019||South Persie House CN2 (overall)||Unique Cottages made the booking process seamless. I would highly endorse this self catering accommodation company and similarly, I would recommend this wonderful holiday house - exceedingly comfortable -great warmth, superb beds and bedding, well equipped kitchen -the latter definitely very much the hub of the house. The secure garden is not overlooked and provides a great expansive playground for the dogs. The swimming pool is a great boon for young and old alike. We would love to have a summer week here although anytime of the year has its own appeal. A particular thank you to Sharon the housekeeper who, with a touch of magic, keeps the place pristine clean. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated. An A plus experience from start to finish.|

|16-Nov-2019||Tayvulin AN8 (overall)||The house was exactly what we hoped for and met every one of our needs it was clean and warm with lots of space for us and our 3 children 15 11 and 8. We had lovely family nights toasting marshmallows and playing the wii and watched some of the DVDs on offer. We were delighted to be able to store the bikes safely in the garage. We ate at the table which could sit 8 and I had all i needed to cook simple meals. I used the washing machine and airer for drying clothes and the location was convenient and we walked down to the shops and cafes several times. Would love to stay again **|
