Auchterarder

GleneaglesIn 1200, Aucherarder gained the title of Royal Burgh. Kings and generals stayed here, in the great houses around the town. During the great burning of 1715, it was razed to the ground by retreating Jacobites. Thanks to the handloom industry, however, it was later to rise again. Capture the town's history in the Heritage Centre at the Tourist Information Centre.

Auchterarder is known locally as The Lang Toon - a name derived from its extended High Street. Today, little of the original Burgh of 1200 remains. Indeed you will notice that the town dates largely from the 18th Century and is now famous for the quality of its shops. This is a window shopper's paradise!

Horse Riding On Kinnoull HillThe narrow fields and woodlands of the area lead into narrow Glen Eagles, a name derived from the Gaelic 'eaglais' meaning church. Enjoy the panoramic views that were the inspiration for the location of the world famous Gleneagles Hotel.

Mention of Gleneagles leads the mind inevitably to golf. There is no doubt that this is an area beloved of golfers, providing glorious scenery and challenging courses not only at Gleneagles but also in Auchterarder, Whitemoss by Aberuthven and Dunning. Horse riding, shooting, fishing and falconry can also be enjoyed here.
