Map & local info
The Mackintosh Building sits in the centre of the beautiful village of Comrie, on the edge of the Scottish Highlands. There is an excellent circular walk around the local area. Keen golfers can enjoy Comrie's own acclaimed, scenic golf course and also the world famous, luxury Gleneagles golf resort, which is about half an hour from Comrie by car and is open to visitors all year round.
The Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre and Crieff Visitor Centre, both a short distance from Comrie, have a wide variety of things to do and see, to keep visitors entertained. The majestic garden, claimed to be one of the finest in Scotland, at nearby Drummond Castle is a perfect place for a stroll to appreciate the elegant and tranquil surroundings.
Loch Earn is a freshwater loch about 10 miles west of Comrie with a range of watersports to suit all tastes. Don't miss the leaping wild salmon at Buchanty Spout, about 15 miles east of Comrie, where you can marvel at this amazing spectacle of nature.
Stirling is 25 miles away and is well worth a visit to its historic sites such as the Castle, the National Wallace Monument and the Battle of Bannockburn. Stroll around the medieval old town and venture into the surrounding, beautiful countryside by following one of the many walking routes in and around Stirling. The Blair Drummond Safari Park, on the outskirts of the city, is a fun day out too.
Close by is the Black Watch Castle & Museum (24 miles) and the Perth Museum and Art Gallery (24.2 miles). You can gain free entry to both with a National Art Pass, which enables its 122,000 holders to enjoy free and discounted entry to over 225 museums, galleries and historic houses throughout the UK. The pass is presented by one of Landmark's partners, the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, which has been supporting museums and galleries for over 110 years by helping them to buy and display great works of art for everyone to enjoy. Income raised through the National Art Pass goes straight back into their charitable programme. Find more about it on the ArtFund's website http://www.artfund.org/
