Where you’ll be

Comrie, Scotland, United Kingdom

Comrie is a beautiful picturesque village.
It's perfect for the adventurers out there who love climbing/biking/kayaking but it also caters for the individuals who just want to unwind and relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Comrie lies on the banks of the River Earn and is situated in the heart of the scenic West Strathearn area of Perthshire at the meeting of Glen Lednock and Glen Artney, with the Scottish Highlands rising to the north. The village has a wide range of local businesses, a hotel, medical centre, butcher, bakery, restaurants and Sense spa for a holiday treat.

The focal point of the village is the ‘White Church’ previously a historic church and now providing the village with a community centre. Located just outside the village, Comrie Croft offers bike hire, activities and events throughout the year. The Lednock leads up to the Deil’s Cauldron waterfall and above this a hilltop granite obelisk commemorating Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville (1742-1811). Stand at Melvilles monument and you can see the whole village of Comrie.

‘Comrie Fortnight’, is an annual two-week festival in July and August with music, family friendly events and a float parade. The Comrie Fortnight started in the late 1960s and has evolved over the years. Profits from the Comrie Fortnight are used to support events and groups in the local community.

Did you know? Comrie is also known as the ‘Shaky Toun’. Due to its position astride the Highland Boundary Fault it experiences frequent earthquakes. In the 1830s around 7,300 tremors were recorded and today Comrie records earthquakes more often, and to a higher intensity, than anywhere else in the United Kingdom. Comrie became the site of one of the world’s first seismometers in 1840, and a functional replica is still housed in the ‘Earthquake House’ in The Ross in Comrie.
Nearby Cultybraggan Camp is the site of the once-secret underground nuclear bunker. Cultybraggan was first used as a PoW camp during World War II, and then became an Army training area. It later housed a Royal Observer Corps (ROC) nuclear monitoring post, and a Regional Government Headquarters (RGH).The camp ceased to be used by the military in 2004. Thanks to recent funding the site has become a popular with tourists. Some of the original 100 Nissen huts on the western side of the camp were demolished in the 1970s to make way for a firing range, but the majority remain.

The surviving huts, together with an assault course and modern Officers’ Mess facility, make Cultybraggan “one of the three best preserved purpose-built WWII prisoner of war camps in Britain”. In 2006, Historic Scotland listed a number of structures at the camp. Huts 19, 20, and 44–46 are category A listed as being of national significance, while huts 1-3, 21, 29-39, and 47-57 are category B listed.

The Comrie Flambeaux is a unique Hogmanay ritual. On the stroke of midnight, December 31st, a torchlight procession marches through the village. Traditionally the procession involves the twelve strongest men of the village carrying long, thick birch poles, to which burning tarred rags are attached, to each of the four corners of the village.
Crieff (from the Gaelic word for “tree”) is famous for its whisky and cattle droving history. The town used to be a gathering point (or tryst) for cattle farmers to bring their livestock to market. The annual Drover’s Tryst Walking Festival commemorates this heritage with many of the routes ending in the town. Due to disreputable sorts, horse thieves, bandits and drunkards, who came to the town, there was a hanging tree that saw a lot of use. By the 1700’s this tree had been replaced by formal gallows, in the area now called Gallowhill.

Rob Roy MacGregor, perhaps the most famous cattle-rustler of them all, travelled to Crieff on many occasions. The establishment of the hydropathic establishment in the 1800’s saw the town cast off its former reputation to become a popular tourist destination for wealthy businessmen. The modern Crieff Hydro still attracts a large number of visitors and now features a number of activities for guests.

The Famous Grouse Distillery offers excellent tours of the oldest distillery in Scotland, and at the end of the tour, a wee dram of whisky. There’s a restaurant there too. Strathearn Glass on the edge of Crieff is a fine display of Stuart crystal and other brands, the Visitor Centre has a large café, shops and some Buchan Pottery that is local to Crieff and also Caithness Glass. Drummond Castle Gardens are particularly spectacular in high summer but the large Italian garden may be enjoyed at any time. This location was used in the film, Rob Roy and Outlander

The Ceramic Experience offers artistic opportunities for old and young to paint pottery and there is an excellent garden centre and a pleasant short walk beside. A visit in the autumn months to Buchanty Spout, a local beauty spot, where large salmon can be seen leaping their way up the River Almond, is a truly spectacular sight. A day out at the Auchingarroch Wildlife Centre near Comrie is popular with children.
