Invermay is a fully restored Victorian Villa located on the A93 Royal Deeside tourist route which runs from Perth in the south and to Aberdeen in the north. There are historic castles and palaces in abundance in the area with Scone Palac...e (20 minutes away) and Glamis virtually on the doorstep, and others about an hour away, such as Blair Castle, Braemar Castle, Balmoral Castle, Menzies Castle near Aberfeldy, and Falkland Palace in Fife. Braemar is only 55 minutes to the north after passing through the Glenshee ski resort (40 minutes away) which in winter offers the most extensive ski area in Scotland. There is also the very popular Cateran Trail for moderate walkers which starts in Blairgowrie and is a 64 mile circular trip via Bridge of Cally, Kirkmichael, Spittal of Glenshee, Glenisla and Alyth, plus there is the local Ardblair Trail for less strenuous types. Invermay is only five minutes drive from the championship golf courses of Rosemount and Lansdowne at Blairgowrie Golf Club where the Junior Ryder Cup is to be held in September 2014. Fishermen need look no further than the beautiful River Ericht and River Isla, Butterstone Loch (15 minutes away) and other lochs such as Clunie for trout fishing and the River Tay, Britain’s longest river, for salmon.
