Auchterarder, Rural Scotland At Its Best
Nestled in the heart of the Perthshire countryside is the town of Auchterarder, a traditional Scottish town where shopping local is a way of life.
Well known for its proximity to The Gleneagles Hotel and central location for those travelling around Scotland, Auchterarder is a haven for visitors and locals alike. The majority of businesses are independently owned ranging from silver to sweeties and furniture to fruit. With coffee mornings most weekends, community groups most evenings, it is a vibrant community happy to welcome visitors into the fold.
Situated approximately an hour away from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, you are sure to find Auchterarder a welcome sight on your travels. Whether you have just come off the plane at one of the main airports and are heading North, or you are out and about on a day trip, you can be sure of a warm welcome at one of our cafes.
Why not drop in for a visit? Sit down, relax and revitalise, with home baking, freshly cooked meals and some of the best local produce around. Visit the town hall and pick up some crafts from a local coffee morning. It’s so easy to support a community group when they are offering tea and cake for the price of a cuppa.
Our clothing and footwear retailers are renowned for their taste and style, perfect for a special occasion or when you just need cosy socks in the winter. Our butchers and bakers are all award winning and our fruit and veg is something special. Gift shops, ironmongers, sweet shop and an art gallery, it’s all here on our doorstep.
Why not take a pause on your journey and come and enjoy the sense of community and tradition Auchterarder offers? Take a wander up the street of the “Lang Toon”, enjoy rural Scotland at its best.
