The park really is in one of the most scenic and picturesque areas of Scotland, situated some 1.5km along a quiet country road off the B954 from Alyth. Surrounded by farmland, the park has stunning views over the Vale of Strathmore towards the Sidlaw Hills in the south and the rolling hills of the Glens to the north. The park is a wildlife spotting haven with herds of roe deer, ospreys, herons, red squirrels and if you’re lucky possibly even an otter! Loch of Lintrathen sits a few miles north of the park and offers trout fishing opportunities.
We’re only four miles from Alyth, a lovely rural farming town, which is full of character with some lovely tea rooms and eateries, and a lovely burn running through the town centre. Alyth has two excellent golf courses to be played while there are a further two along the road in Blairgowrie.
Blairgowrie is just a few miles west of Alyth. It has a great range of shops, plenty of cafes and restaurants, a large supermarket and a beautiful park in the town centre where the three main roads meet.
To the east lies Kirriemuir, the home of JM Barrie the creator of Peter Pan, which features a wonderful ‘Neverland’ play park and a camera obscura. From there it is a short drive to the coastal towns of Broughty Ferry and Carnoustie.
If you love hill walking and wildlife, why not consider walking some of the Cateran Trail which passes very close to the park. Reaching heights of 2,000ft, it provides some of the most spectacular views in the area. Or use Nethercraig as a base to explore the many, many walks and hikes in the surrounding area.
Plan your days well as there is so much to see and do!
The park is four miles north of Alyth on the B954 to Glen Isla. The park is signposted from the five roads roundabout. Follow the brown tourist signs to Nethercraig. The turning to the park is just after the purple Angus county sign on the right hand side, it will be signposted with the brown tourist sign. The park is 1.5km along this road, you can’t miss it!
