Visiting Comrie

The charming village of Comrie lies on the banks of the River Earn, 25 miles west of Perth. Comrie is in the heart of the scenic West Strathearn region of Perthshire. Nestled between the Glens of Lednock and Artney and with the Scottish Highlands rising to the north Comrie makes the ideal base for exploring Perthshire. In the heart of the village is the “White Church”. Once a place of worship, the building was refurbished and opened as “Comrie Community Centre” in 2000.

Across the road from the church at the corner of Melville Square is a small shop, which was designed by the renowned Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Argaty Red Kites

Argaty Red Kites is a bird watching centre that gives you a unique chance to get close to these exciting birds and learn more about them.

The aim of the project is to increase the number of Red Kites in the wild, so feeding is minimal but there is always a good view of them whether they are perching, flying or feeding. It is very rare for visitors not to see any birds, although you normally see larger numbers of them during the winter. Visitors have the chance to observe the birds feeding from the hide.
