Wade's Bridge, Aberfeldy

Market town Aberfeldy sits in the heart of Highland Perthshire alongside Scotland's longest river, the River Tay and just 6 miles east of the largest loch in Perthshire, Loch Tay. A wealth of walking and outdoor activity opportunities are available locally around spectacular glens like Glen Lyon, and you'll find best salmon fishing nearby on the River Tay.  

National Poet Robert Burns was so enamoured with the Aberfeldy area he wrote a poem about the local Birks - Aberfeldy's birch woodland. Aberfeldy is also rich in ancient Highland clan heritage, with world famous attraction the beautiful Castle Menzies situated within a mile. This 16th Century fairytale castle is where Bonnie Prince Charlie took rest en-route to the nearby battlefield site at Culloden.

A Fairtrade town brimming with specialist craft and food shops, Aberfeldy is also home to Dewar's World of Whisky Distillery, open for public tours. A great time to visit Aberfeldy is during the annual Aberfeldy Festival in early November featuring markets, family fun activities, book signings, live music and more.

Take your pick of local woodland, loch and riverside walks, or head off along popular local walking trails like the Rob Roy Way linking Aberfeldy with Grandtully. Boating centres, white water rafting and a choice of outdoor activity centres are numerous locally.

Aberfeldy and Loch Tay are perfect for adrenalin pumping activity holidays and you'll find some great specialist attractions in the area like Legends of Grandtully with on-site chocolate centre, shop and coffee house.  Stay in the Highland Perthshire and book Aberfeldy accommodation online now.
