This area of Scotland is waiting to be explored on foot, bicycle, horse and even llama. With beautiful hill and mountain walks and miles of scenic cycle routes, what are you waiting for?
For the avid cyclists, there are two cycle shops within 5 miles selling parts, clothes, repairs and hire.
If hiking is more your thing, how about taking on part, or all of the Cateran trail that passes right next to Culdee Cottage?
Lands of Loyal, Alyth, set on the hillside overlooking the Vale of Strathmore, 5 miles from Culdee Cottage. Provides fine dining with local fish, game and produce, and a good list of Whiskies.
Alyth Hotel and Strathmore Golf Club both have traditional menus, while Cargills Bistro in Blairgowrie (10 miles) has great food in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
If you love Wild Life, you are in for a treat. The Loch of Kinnordy RSPB reserve is a stone's throw away, and there are two Wildlife Nature reserves run by the Scottish Wildlife Trust: Loch of the Lowes and the Montrose Basin . If you are lucky you may see Ospreys hatching at Loch of the Lowes, and many sea birds, not to mention seals and otters, at the Montrose Basin.
There are also many woods to explore where you might spot red squirrels and deer and all kinds of fungi and flora.
