We are fortunate to be situated close to many fine golf courses, including Gleneagles, (which is only 8 miles away), King's, Queen's and Monarch courses. We are also within an hour of St Andrews - where there is the famous Old Course, as well as several other fine courses, including the new Kingsbarns - a stunning course. Carnoustie, Rosemount, in Blairgowrie, and many of the A href="carnoustie.htm">links courses on the Fife coast are all within easy reach. Tee times can be booked in advance to ensure a memorable golfing week on some of the finest courses in the world There are also other local courses at Muthill, Crieff, Crieff Hydro - which has its own driving range, and the King James V course at Perth, fine courses in their own right, but accessible on a more informal basis.

Overlooking the River Earn, The Steading offers access to excellent sea trout and salmon fishing. Daily or weekly permits are available on a variety of beats, but prior booking is essential. The Earn is renowned as a sea trout river, with fish in the system throughout the season, though May, June and July are, on average, the most productive months. There is also excellent salmon fishing, particularly in September and October. One of the Earn's best kept secrets is the quality of the grayling fishing, which comes into its own in the autumn. There is excellent brown trout fishing in Perthshire. There are small hill-lochs nearby, and boats and permits can be arranged on Loch Earn. A short drive to the north, the charming River Braan is one of the best trout streams in the Highlands, and the Tay offers superb trout fishing on a grander scale. June is a great month for trout fishing. Daily permits for salmon fishing on some beats on the river Tay can also be organised. Casting lessons can be arranged.

Shooting parties can be accommodated, for pheasant, duck, goose and pigeon shooting, any of these can be arranged in season with due warning.
Roe deer stalking is readily available on the estate and on neighbouring estates. Enquire for further details
Gleneagles can arrange shooting lessons.

Flying & Parachuting
Nearby, Strathallan Airfield offers parachuting and hot-air ballooning.
