A Relaxing Stay in Quaint Forgandenny

If you are looking for a quiet weekend getaway destination in Scotland you will find that not only is Forgandenny quiet, but it is also accessible. This small village is located only about four miles southwest of Perth and it can be reached by taking a 20-minute bus ride from this city. For those slightly further a field, Forgandenny is only 45 minutes from Edinburgh and one hour away from Glasgow, which means it truly is easy to reach from most of the main city centers in Scotland. It can also be reached by train as there is a daily train service between Forgandenny and London Kings Cross.

Forgandenny, Scotland, is situated in the Perth and Kinross council area and it can be found roughly a mile south of the River Earn. The town is simplistic and quiet and really not much can be said about it except that it is the perfect place to relax after the stress and rushing found in bigger cities. Forgandenny has a church, a village hall, a bed and breakfast and a primary school. The nearby Strathallan School has been in existence since 1912 though it was moved to its current location in 1920. It has proved to be the life of the old town by providing pupils and staff with accommodation, food and shopping opportunities. This means that nearly 500 people living in the town are associated with the boarding school in one way or another. Most visitors to the town make use of the bed and breakfast and enjoy walking the streets, enjoying a cup of tea or coffee at the café or idly whiling away time in the nearby countryside. The three main features to be found here are the Strathallan School, the River Earn and the River Strath. The two rivers offer the perfect setting for an afternoon of relaxation and visitors may catch a glimpse of resident wildlife.

So why not try something new and take a quiet trip to the village of Forgandenny? You might be surprised at just how refreshed you can feel after a short stay in this tiny village.
