Fishing is plentiful in the local area and in Perthshire. The River Earn can be fished for trout, sea trout and salmon. Day tickets are issued by the delicatessen in the village.

Cycling - Perthshire is a fantastic area to cycle in with such a variance of scenery and multiple cycle tracks, forest tracks and quiet roads. Cycle as a family, a group on your own or with just a few friends.

Drummond Castle Gardens - From the east gateway on the Crieff Muthill road, visitors drive up the long beech avenue to the car park and then walk to the outer castle court. On passing into the inner courtyard and attaining the top of the terracing the full extent and majesty of the garden is suddenly revealed.

Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre - see an amazing assortment of wildlife, animal feedings, coffee shop, picnic area, chick handling, animal adoptions, outdoor play park, tree house and giant rabbit burrows, indoor play barn, spectacular views over Strathearn and a gift shop.

The Famous Grouse Whisky Distillery - the most visited distillery in Scotland.

Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park - a great day out for all the family.

Lochearnhead Watersports Centre - there is a launching slip-way for fishing boats, ski boats, wind surfers etc, and a number of moorings are available for the season. The licensed Loch-side Cafe offers an ideal location to have lunch, tea or just sit with a coffee and watch the activities from dry land.

The Deil's Cauldron - the River Lednock cascades out from a rocky gorge in the atmospheric tree-clad amphitheatre known as the Deil's Cauldron. This excellent circular walk from the attractive village of Comrie visits the Cauldron as well as having an optional ascent to the Melville Monument, an obelisk on Dun More hill that is a fine viewpoint.

Loch Turret - a beautiful loch within a short drive from Comrie. Don't forget your camera.

Loch Turret by Polly Pullar

Loch Earn which is well used for water sports is unusual in having it's own version of a 'tidal system'. These are not true tides but it is called seiching. As a result of the persistent prevailing wind blowing along the Loch there is stress applied to the water surface. This causes a slight 'slope' on the loch. This pressure results in an oscillation called a seiche in which the water pushes back up the loch. In the case of Loch Earn this has a cycle of 16 hours.
