The guide was an elderly lady who was very enthusiastic and...

  • Dewar's Whisky Distillery - Museum &...

    After our tour through the distillery, we were shown a film about the distillery's history. The film lasted about ten minutes and was presented in a room that was designed like a small, old fashioned cinema with comfortable seats - quite nice! The film was also interesting, explaining how the distillery was founded by John Dewar in 1846 and how it...

  • Dewar's World of Whisky

    I must admit I haven't visited Dewar's myself, but I've been told that if you're into whisky and whisky distilleries, this is a great place to go. Open all year round, but with slightly shorter opening times during winter.

  • The birks of Aberfeldy/Falls of Moness

    There's a lovely little walk from the village centre up to the Falls of Moness and back. The 3-mile path takes you through beautiful woodlands, never wandering far from the brook and the falls. The Scottish poet Robert Burns was so enchanted about this wonderful spot of natural beauty that he wrote a poem about it - he's still sitting there, trying...

    The Sma' Glen is a beautiful glen close to Aberfeldy. It is only 3km long, but it is truly spectacular. The river Almond flows through it, and it has been on the trail of several historical figures, such as Bonnie Prince Charlie who marched through the glen on his way to Culloden. I was happy our tour guide stopped so that we were able to take a few pictures and to enjoy the scenery a little longer and not only from the bus.

    Doing research for this tip I read that at one end of the glen there is a large monolith which according to legend is the burial place of the bard Ossian. Unfortunately we did not visit that stone (I would like to see it not because I believe in the legend, but to see the monolith). Make sure you look out for it when you travel here!

    Aberfeldy is home to a nice litlle golf course, par is 68 and yardage is 5283.

    Some of the holes bring the River Tay into play and there is a funky moving bridge which spans the river, although set amidst rolling hills the course itself is not to hilly.

    A weekday round is £15 and a weekend round £20.

    Equipment: Golf clubs surpringsingly enough ;-)

    Rolling Clouds and Clubhouse.

  • Guided tour to Aberfeldy

    I visited Scotland in February, and I expected it to be very cold, with snow and stormy weather. Advise on VT confirmed this, and so I decided that I rather did not want to rely too much on public transport which could easily be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather conditions. On the other hand I wanted to get out of Edinburgh and, during my ten...

    Aberfeldy became particularly popular due to a poem written by the Scottish poet Robert Burns, „The Birks of Aberfeldy“. The text was written to a pre-existing melody in 1787 while Burns travelled around the highlands and rested in a wood close to Aberfeldy.This is the text, taken from www.robertburns.org:Bonie lassie, will ye go, Will ye go, will...
