Just some of the things to do in Errol and beyond!



Some local activities:

Skydiving: local skydiving is available at Errol airfield!

Polo: playing polo (or spectating) in Errol Park Estate

Horse Riding: another possibility (just a mile’s canter away!)

Local Walks:
A diverse landscape makes The Nest a perfect place from which to explore whilst savouring some fresh air. Look out for deer, red squirrels, kingfishers etc., whilst following an assortment of informative sign-posted paths. These straightforward circular routes lead from the cottage down to a wooded bank at the edge of the River Tay, at first above reed beds and later above the watery tidal flats.
