On the water
Enjoy a peaceful row or paddle around the loch. There is a good solid rowing boat and 3 sit-on kayaks: 1 double, 2 single. (Buoyancy aids must be worn and use of the boats is at the your own risk.) Fishing for wild brown trout is available on request.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to walking, from easy strolls to more strenuous moorland hikes. Self-guided maps available. Or to see the best of Straloch why not book a guided walk: these cover a range of interests from ancient archaelogical sites, geological features, wild flowers, mammals and birds. Please enquire in advance to ensure availability (Contact).
We love nature! We have pond dipping equipment and sweep nets so children can discover the tiny but exotic creatures of Straloch. We can also organise nature treasure hunts or take them on a "Poos and Clues" walk - it's amazing the signs the more elusive animals like otter leave behind...
Good quality hard court. Soft soled shoes must be worn. Equipment available.
Children love cycling up and down the quiet back drive to explore the Millennium Wood or Walled Garden.
Mountain bikers will enjoy the challenge of the hill road, a 3 mile steady climb to the lunch hut with stunning mountain scenery. Or there's the forest trails of Kindrogan Wood including a a circular route to the village of Kirkmichael - perfect for a refreshing drink or lunch en route.
If road cycling is more your thing, the main road to and from Straloch between Pitlochry to Bridge of Cally is a popular route (the A924) and from there you can go high up to Glenshee and beyond to Braemar or down to the tiny city of Dunkeld and back to PItlochry via the very pretty NCN Route 7.
