Things to do in Auchterarder

Around a 45-minute drive from your luxury accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront, you can spend a day in Auchterarder. This small town in between Perth and Stirling, is home to the world-famous golf hotel Gleneagles. It’s also a popular place for shopping, with its wide range of independent shops and cafes. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Auchterarder …

Auchterarder Golf

For golf enthusiasts, Auchterarder is a dream day out. Gleneagles is one of the greatest golfing locations in the world, recently hosting The Ryder and Solheim Cup. Its offers three championship golf courses and one 9-hole course, plus extensive practise facilities. A wonderful setting that golfers of all levels will appreciate. There is also Auchterarder Golf Club, with spectacular views and a parkland course which runs alongside Gleneagles’ PGA Centenary. Both clubs are open to non-members all year round.

Other Attractions

But there’s more to Auchterarder than world-class golf. So if you’re more interested in history and sightseeing, you’ll still have things to see and do. Such as Tullibardine Chapel, an ancient building mostly unchanged since the middle ages. Ruthven Gallery, a small private art gallery with a changing programme of exhibitions. And for the thrill-seekers, Do It Outdoors, woodland adventure and activity centre.

Shops and Cafes

Known as the “lang toon” (long town), Auchterarder has a long High Street, measuring 2.5 km. There are lots of quirky independent shops and cafes to explore. So you can enjoy some retail therapy, stopping for refreshments along the way.

So whether you’ve been golfing, sightseeing or shopping, it’s less than an hour’s drive back to your Loch Lomond lodge. Where you can kick back and relax in the hot tub after a busy day.
