Welcome to Auchterarder Scotland
Royal Burgh of Auchterarder is a situated with the Ochil Hills and Gleneagles
to the south and Strathearn to the north. The town is laid out with a
long main street giving it the nickname of the Lang Toon.
At nearby Braco, the Ardoch Roman Fort is one of the most of important
surviving monuments of the Roman period in Britain. The area also boasts
the magnificent Celtic nine-foot Dupplin Cross, now housed in St Serfs
Church in the lovely village of Dunning. Before being moved to the church
for protection in 2002, this intricately carved cross stood on a hillside
for over 1000 years.

The narrow fields and woodlands of the area lead into narrow Glen Eagles, a name derived from the Gaelic 'eaglais', meaning church, rather than eagles. Visible from much of Strathearn, the Ochils are a long range of steeply-sided, round-topped hills, stretching 25 miles from the Firth of Tay in the north-east to Stirling in the south-west. Colourful hill names include Whitewisp, Steele's Knowe, Craigentaggert, The Nebit, Ben Cleuch (the highest at 2363ft) and Bengengie. Walkers can choose from a number of interesting lower level options through the glens, splendid individual hills or, for the energetic, enjoy a full traverse across the spine of the Ochil Range from Sheriffmuir to Glen Devon. The hills of Highland Perthshire, Fife and the Trossachs are all clearly visible from the many vantage points throughout the range.
