Out & About

The Arns Cottage has a huge selection of great things to do and visit from it's door step covering all ages and interests. Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews are all within a 1 hour's drive from the cottage.

There's an abundance of fun things to do with kids in the area which range from a safari park, outdoor adventure playgrounds and indoor soft play to ceramic painting and AMF bowling. All of which I have detailed below. And for those that love the great outdoors, there's lots of fabulous walks.

The five star, world famous Gleneagles Hotel is only 6 miles from the cottage and has a championship 18 and 9 hole golf course, an equestrian centre, clay pigeon shooting, tennis courts, archery, a luxurious health Club and a beautiful and sumptuous SPA which won Conde Naste Traveller 'Best UK Hotel Spa' award in 2013. We can arrange day passes for the health club for use during your stay at our cottage or simply book a SPA treatment direct and you'll automatically be given access to the Health Club as well as all the indulgences the SPA has to offer.

There is also the famous House of Bruar shop (1 hour drive away) which sits like a castle at the foot of the spectacular Bruar Falls (also a good walk), and is widely acknowledged as Scotland's most prestigious independent store. Definitely the place to go for your cashmere! Within 20 mins drive you have Glen Turret Distillery (home of the Famous Grouse malt) in Crieff, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument in Stirling and Scone Palace in Perth.

Golfers are spoilt for choice with championship courses at Gleneagles Hotel and The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews, along with local courses in Auchterarder, Crieff and Dunblane.

We also have a huge selection of fantastic places to eat from a 2 Michelin starred restaurant to a variety of tasty cafés and farm shops.

"We LOVED this cottage! No complaints and I hope to be back again as soon as possible. Beautifully decorated, lovely and cosy. Thanks for being so welcoming and helpful. We've never been so warm in Scotland - loved the open fire!"
