Leisure Facilities

Tennis : We have our own recently laid Elastasol all-weather court situated close to the Reception building on our entrance driveway. Hire tennis racquets are available at Reception. We also have an electric Tennis ball machine for hire which provides an excellent training facility for aspiring players. Professional Tennis coaching can be arranged.



Disc Golf : We have a 9 hole par 3 disc golf course hidden away amongst huge old oak trees. It is a professionally designed course with marked tees and official PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) chain baskets.

Play areas : We have a small play area with swings, a slide and a climbing frame. There are large open areas for other ball games and some great places to fly kites. There are two small burns running through the grounds which are fun for netting tadpoles or small trout, and for dam building. There are lots of other areas which are perfect for building dens.

Attractions : There are many attractions in our immediate vicinity including Glenturret Distillery, Drummond Castle Gardens, Auchingarrich Wildlife park, Drummond fish farm, Crieff Visitor centre and Comrie Earthquake House to name but a few. For more detail on the local area visit Strathearn.com.


Lochside Path :
The path around the loch is about one and a half miles - an idyllic setting for a jog, run, or nature walk. The south side is more open and winds its way through huge beech trees whilst affording glimpsing views of Ochtertyre House. The North side wends it way through rhododendron bushes and trees past the boat house, where a track runs up to the 11th century Cluggie Castle. The North side can be walked on tarmac with a buggy or wheelchair as far as the boat house, beyond which the path becomes muddier with more tree roots. The South side is quite open but with tree roots and muddy in places, therefore accessible for a larger wheeled buggy.


Wildlife : Many different species of birds visit Loch Monzievaird including Ospreys, Eagles, Kingsfishers, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, Oystercatchers, Curlews, Dippers and dozens of other varieties of water birds. Otters live in the loch and can be seen at most times of the year fishing for freshwater mussels and fat trout. Elusive roe deer can be seen early in the morning, and red deer occasionally make their way down to the lochside. Bats are regular and most welcome visitors.

Walking : Apart from the lovely walk around Loch Monzievaird itself there are many other walks that can be taken directly from here without getting into your car. Right across the road from our entrance, a short track takes you into the Crieff path network including a lovely walk alongside the river Earn into Crieff. For the more adventurous hillwalker there are many Munros within easy distance of Loch Monzievaird.
