A good day out
They say location is everything and being in the heart of the central belt, maybe we have it all!
Some of the world best golf courses including Gleneagles and St Andrews are within easy reach, as well as Great Distilleries including Famous Grouse. There is a woollen mill trail close by with Blair Drummond Safari Park just 30 minutes away and walks galore.
We would be delighted to show you around!….
So, what can you do for a good day out?Take a train to Edinburgh, rattle across the Forth Rail Bridge and enjoy the views. A short walk from the station will take you onto the Royal Mile and an historic stroll up to the Castle. There is so much to see here, both in terms of history and the stunning views. On your way back, why not nip into the Camera Obscura for a world of difference and guaranteed fun for all ages
The East Neuk of Fife is only about 40-minutes’ drive away. Following the Coastal Path provides a great way to see the historical villages. Just leave your car in any chosen village and catch buses from point to point. Alternatively drive along the coast enjoying the sea views and visiting the villages as you go. Be sure to spend some time at Elie, where there is a good nine hole golf course, a fine pub overlooking the great sandy beach and of course the chainlink walk for the more adventurous. All the villages have small harbours and if you are lucky you might even come back with a fresh lobster from St Monans or Pittenweem. If it’s more of a pass-through trip why not end up in St Andrews, Prince William’s university town and the home of Golf.
The Highlands and a ride on “Hogwarts Express”.
Drive up north on the A9 until you get to General Wade’s road, the A889 which leads to the A86. This will take you along Loch Laggan to Locharber and Fort William. Then climb aboard the “Hogwarts Express” for the steam train ride of your life to Mallaig where you disembark. Here you can enjoy the breathtaking views or walk 50 metres to a wonderful fish restaurant, located on the harbourside. Why not imbibe in a drop of accompliment and find yourself gently clickety-clacked back to Fort William with the odd soot smudge as a souvenir. Then proceed back through Glen Coe and home to a warm cottage fire. A truly magnificent day out….
