From the South:
M6 North
M74 exit at Junction 4 towards Glasgow
Then take M73 towards Stirling,

M73 joins onto the A80 
A80 by-passing Cumbernauld, joins
M80 by-passing Denny, joins
M9 by-passing Stirling, joins
A9 towards Perth, by-passing Dunblane

Keep on the A9 towards Perth until you see a very big brown sign 'Tourist Route'

Exit the A9 at Greenloaning 

This is the route we take when the weather is good:-

It is a lovely scenic drive (and a bit of a short-cut along the top of the hills).   It is a 'B' road, but there is generally very little traffic.  So here's what you do:

1.  Exit  the A9 at Greenloaning onto A822 towards Crieff.   After Greenloaning, drive straight on and through the village of Braco.  You will come to a right hand bend and go over a little humped back bridge.   In about 500 yards or so be looking out to turn left onto the B827 to Comrie.

2.  It is about 9 miles of a lovely drive over the hills and stunning views as you come down the hills and into the Village of Comrie.  As you approach the village you will see a round-about.  Take the 1st exit and follow the long straight road (with a few mini-round abouts) go straight through, with houses and cottages on either side, until you cross the bridge over the River Earn.   Ahead of you at the 'T' junction you will see the Royal Hotel, and a large white church on your left. 

3.  Exit the bridge, turning left onto the A85 signposted 'Crianlarich'.   Again, pretty as a picture, in about 6 miles you will enter lovely St. Fillans which is situated at the east end of Loch Earn.

4.  As you come into St. Fillans there are 30 mile an hour signs.  Pass the humped back bridge on the left (which would take you to the Golf Course, and South Road around Loch Earn)  Then you will see a 'Welcome to Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park' stone pillar.  You will be passing a farm of your right, then a row of pretty houses and cottages on the right, with the River Earn on your left.   

5.  You will see a slight right hand bend ahead of you, slow up a bit here.  Look out immediately for our sign "Bluestone Church" on the right hand-side.  Take a care, the driveway is a little steep, but you will soon have it mastered.    

6.   In winter conditions the Village Shop (please ask Liam) have kindly allowed us park, on request, in his Village Shop car park about 100 yards away (just off the main road, by a big tree, by the river). 

7.   If you reach the Village Shop or the Drummond Hotel, you have gone just a  little too far.  In this case, just turn around in the Village Shop car park, and look out for the "Bluestone Church" on the left.

When the weather is poor

We would recommend this route instead:

Exit the A9 at Greenloaning onto A822 and stay on that road, going through the village of Muthill, and straight on into the town of Crieff.  Follow the road up the hill into the town.   At the 'T' junction at the top of the hill, turn left onto the A85 signposted 'Crianlarich'.   Note, there is a Home Giftware shop at the top of that hill, and then a Suzuki car garage on the corner. 

Follow the A85 out of Crieff, and then you will shortly pass The Glenturret Whisky Distillery on the right hand side.  It is apparently the oldest distillery in Scotland, and interesting for a look around, visitor tour, Cafe and Shop.  Carry on driving a nice scenic route for about 6 miles until you reach the lovely village of Comrie.  You will pass the Royal Hotel on your right, and the big white church on your left.  Thereafter another pretty drive through for about 6 miles until you reach St Fillans (situated at the east end of Loch Earn).

Then proceed by reading earlier instructions starting from Number 4.  

Wishing you a good journey 

All Best
