Bluestone Church 

Beautiful Cottage in Scotland in beautiful location 

AROUND AND ABOUT :-

The Village Store and Coffee Shop is ideally situated almost next door to Bluestone. Just go down the steps, turn right towards the Loch, and within about 30 yards you will be at the shop.   It is a small general grocery store, convenient for newspapers, bread, milk, wines, spirits, fishing licenses, and basic groceries.   Please check opening hours of the shop yourselves, as these can vary through the seasons.

Beautiful Loch Earn is right outside the door, great to take some picnic chairs down to a little beach on the south shore of the Loch, and just enjoy the scenery.  There are water sports, fishing, boat hire, ghillie hire all available on the Loch.   Wonderful local walks in this beautiful location are readily accessible, and if you are feeling a little more spirited, you could try and 'bag a Monro'- climb Ben Vorlich.     You can drive your car right around the whole loch.   At the east end of the village there is a small humped back bridge that takes you past the lovely St. Fillans Golf Course, and along the south shore of the loch.   About half way along you will come to Vorlich House, the start of the walk up to the summit of Ben Vorlich.

Please take a look at our Things To Do pages where we have listed a whole variety of website links that you may find of interest

You might like to visit The Glenturret Whisky Distillery', the oldest working Distillery in Scotland.  It is situated just a few miles outside Crieff (approaching from the St Fillans side).   The tour is a great experience and you could round it off with a bit of whisky tasking.  They have a lovely restaurant, Cafe and Shop with a great Scottish ambience.  

Enjoy looking out for all the local wild-life - Ospreys and Kites are frequent visitors.   The hills around abound with red deer and towards the end of September at the commencement of the Autumn rut, you can both see and hear the handsome stags rounding up their females.   It is quite a magical experience to hear these magnificent creatures roar through the hills and glens.   We even have resident Beavers now, right in front of Bluestone and along the River Earn, keep a sharp look out.  

For Banks, Chemists, Doctors, Butchers and a general store visit Comrie, a pretty little village about 6 miles to the east. For larger shops and supermarkets visit the town of Crieff, where they have an Aldi and a Co-Op, a number of Restaurants and Cafe's. The town of Callander to the west is a lovely drive and has a good selection of shops.  While there you could drive on a few miles more and enjoy a visit to The Scottish Antiques Centre and lovely Cafe at Doune.  Great for a nice lunch, we can recommend the fish and chips. 

For suggestions on where to eat out, we have left a house book at Bluestone Church  that gives phone numbers and locations of a number of good restaurants etc.
