39 days of lockdown in and we’re really starting to miss visiting all the fun and tasty local businesses around us!

So where do we want to visit first?


The team at Balmeadowside and Vicarsford cannot wait to take in the sea air on a walk at St Andrews Beach. This infamous beach is 25 minutes away from Balmeadowside and 15 minutes away from Vicarsford, and although it has its bustling areas, you can always find a quiet space to relax; our four-legged best friends love chasing their tennis balls in to the sea.

If you time your walk to late afternoon, you can then pick up the freshest fish and chips from Tailend for dinner and enjoy them on the beachfront with some of the best views around!

Those of us with young children are really missing Cairnie Fruit Farm and Muddy Boots where we can often take the children and meet with friends. This way the kids can run off lots of energy and the adults can enjoy some grown up conversation as well a delicious slice of cake.



Our staff at Conifers are looking forward to visiting Ernespie Farm, we’ve watched their Facebook page over lockdown and can’t wait to meet the kid goats. We’re sure our children will love all of the animals as well as the fun play areas and with a restaurant on site as well we can plan a whole day out.

We also really miss visiting The Galloway Forest, it’s only a short drive to Kirroughtree where you can walk for hours and always find a different route to explore.

Newton Stewart, as many of you will know, is such a friendly village and we are most certainly looking forward to a few drinks and tasty food at The Crown Hotel.



Recently our team at Rossie Ochil drove to Kinross (only 20 mins) for dinner at The Kirklands and can highly recommend! Friendly staff and gorgeous food…this is first on the list for dinner.

Perthshire is a gorgeous part of Scotland and we’re missing simply getting out and about to places like Kinnoull Hill, exploring the Cateran Trail (this trail is right at Drumfork Estate’s doorstep) and taking a stroll along the River Tay.

The South Inch in Perth is also a favourite spot to tire out the children, so we’re looking forward to being able to meet with friends where the children can explore and play. We also hope to see the dog friendly South Inch Pavilion open so we can also enjoy a spot of lunch.



Our Greenmyre team have let us know that they miss popping in to Peel Farm, not only for the delicious lunches but also wandering through the farm shop. The children miss going to The Neverland Playpark on Kirriemuir Hill to battle Captain Hook on the Pirate Ship!



We can’t wait to welcome you all back soon, and it’s perfectly fine if you won’t be visiting any of these places…we know that relaxing in the hot tub is high priority for lots of you!
