Things to do in Fortingall, Perth and Kinross
If your idea of pleasure is to seek out and drive the by-ways of Britain, then don't miss Fortingall. It is a gem of a hamlet. It's set in a shallow, flat bottomed, glen and surrounded by wooded hills. This location is not to be missed. Neither is Fortingall's architecture. Both maintenance and renovation of buildings has been done to the highest standards and in perfect harmony with the surroundings. The small rows of terraced cottages appear to be fairly unique for Scotland, several of these terraces being thatched. In the summer, this terrace has delightful cottage gardens.
The entire village is built to one side of the road and faces a meadow. The old church, which stands adjacent to Fortingall's hotel, is worthy of a visit to the village in itself. There are many pleasant and relatively traffic free drives around Fortingall. In October the surrounding countryside is a blaze of Autumn colours for mile after mile.
