Day Tripper #1 – The Deil’s Cauldron

We pride ourselves of having plenty of fun things on-site to see and do but we still love to encourage our guests to get out and explore! So, welcome to the first of our ‘Day Tripper’ blog posts – from the well-known attractions to the hidden little gems, we’ll guide you through the best that Perthshire and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Just a few short miles along the road from Crieff sits Comrie, a quiet and beautiful village. The only time the peace is disturbed is when the ground shakes (Comrie experiences more earth tremors than anywhere else in the UK due to its position on the Highland Boundary Fault!) or during the Comrie Fortnight – the village’s annual festival, full of friendly competitions, dances and parades.

The village is a walker’s paradise with beautiful scenery in every direction and walks to suit all abilities. Nestled up in the beautiful woodland to the north lies the Deil’s Cauldron – a well-hidden pocket of small falls, narrow gorges and whirling pools.

Secluded and picturesque, the Deil’s Cauldron is home to a whole range of trees and plants covering the overhanging rocks. Check out the video below to see for yourself…

The Deil’s Cauldron and the Wee Cauldron, which can be found slightly further downstream, make up a very rewarding section of the Glen Lednock circular walk. A low grade, 5 mile walk on mostly well-trodden woodland paths.

A little extra…

If you’re feeling brave you can take the path up to the Melville Monument which lies just over the road from the Deil’s Cauldron. It’s a short, steep climb but once you’re there the view makes it all worth it so dig out those walking boots!
