DIRECTIONS From North or South: Join the A9 to the Ballinluig junction. Follow the A827 to Aberfeldy. Drive into Aberfeldy, through the Town Square. Continue to a junction with traffic lights, and turn left on to the Crieff Road, where you’ll ascend away from the town centre. Pass the entrance to the ‘Birks of Aberfeldy’ on the right, and Moness Resort on the left, and you will start seeing signs for ‘Errichel’ and ‘Thyme Deli & Bistro’. We are on the right hand side.
SATNAV USERS To find us via Satnav, just search for ‘Errichel’ in Google Maps, or enter the postcode PH15 2EL. We find that most Satnav devices encourage turning off the A9 on to the Old Military Road at Dunkeld. This takes you via a hilly scenic route, which is slightly more direct, but you may find it quicker and more comfortable in the Winter months to stay on the main road and let your Satnav re-route you, turning off at Logierait instead.
HELPFUL TIP Please be advised that if coming from the Crieff direction, some Satnav devices will ask you to turn left into an entrance at the rear of the farm. Ignore this, and stay on the road until you reach our ‘proper’ main entrance, which is well signposted, and has dry stone gateposts.
RAIL, BUS & TAXI Unfortunately, our location is not currently well served by public transport. There is a bus service from Perth (number 23) which comes in to Aberfeldy, however, we are a 1o minute drive up the Crieff Road from the town centre.
Our nearest railway station is Pitlochry. From Pitlochry, we advise pre-booking a taxi or taking the bus service (Number 24) to Ballinluig and transferring to Aberfeldy (Number 23).
Aberfeldy Taxis is the only Aberfeldy-based Taxi service, and you can call them on +44 (0)1887 820370. Be advised to do this as early as possible in your planning process.
NEW BUS TO CRIEFF There is a new minibus service that travels between Aberfeldy and Crieff (and back) once on weekdays, and this service passes our front gate. This service leaves Aberfeldy’s Chapel Street at 9am, and will pass us at around 9.15am. The driver will stop here upon request, and we are open from 9am for coffee and/or breakfast. The return bus leaves Crieff at 2.40pm, and will pass this way at around 3.15pm. You may also find this service useful if already at Errichel, and you wish to visit Crieff for the day. Before travelling, please call +44 (0)1764 662218, or email Docherty’s to check the details and whether the service is being offered when you plan to visit us.
WALKING OR CYCLING TO ERRICHEL FROM ABERFELDY
ON FOOT Walking to Errichel from Aberfeldy Town Centre is possible, but please avoid it, as the walk is along a winding and fast main road, with stretches lacking a pavement or verge. There is an alternative walking route over farmland, but we do not currently publicise it as it is not an established footpath. However, if you’re an experienced walker, email us at Enquiries@Errichel.co.uk, and we will be happy to provide you with a map and walking instructions.
CYCLING Our area is very popular with cyclists, but we would advise you that the road from Aberfeldy is a fairly steep and bendy climb, with road traffic often passing quite fast. If you’re cycling in the area, we’d be delighted to welcome you, and we have an outside bike rack near the main building on site.
