Perthshire Hen Do Ideas - Spalsh White Water Rafting

Love playing on the water? Scotland’s rivers are here to enjoy to the full…

Think Scotland and you might rustle up a romantic vision of mist over a glen. A more cynical soul might simply imagine dull rainy days! 🙂

The truth of the matter is that Scotland has the same amount of daylight hours as Brighton – and in the spirit of presenting a balanced view, get a sea fret on the coast and you’ll know about it! Scotland really isn’t as miserable as many may think. Yes, there is rain. Yes, we get our fair share of snow. But that’s to be expected in a mountainous region, and the 26 rivers that travel through a wonderful variety of scenery and past Scotland’s historic towns before reaching the sea have helped shape a beautiful natural environment.

Scotland’s rivers, including the Tweed, Spey, Clyde, Tummel, Teith, Forth, Dee and Don, cover over 700 miles. Not only do they offer some amazing fishing, the rivers also provide a perfect natural playground for water-based adventures. Close to Alexander House is the River Tay, the longest river in Scotland and the seventh longest in the UK. It originates on the slopes of Ben Lui to the west and travels eastward to the Firth of Tay, just below Dundee, where it flows out into the North Sea.

Splashing about on the River Tay

Splash River DuckiesBeing so close, it would be wrong not to take advantage of the fun to be had on the Tay, which is why we went to spend a day on the water with the fantastic team at Splash. With just the two of us, the River Duckies activity was ideal – we got to shoot the rapids in a 2-person inflatable, which is part white-water raft, part kayak with a bit of Canadian canoe thrown in. Whether you’ve tried rafting before or are a complete beginner, you’re accompanied by expert guides – we felt safe throughout the three-hour experience and really enjoyed the freedom of controlling our own craft. It’s fun, it’s exhilarating, and it’s exhausting afterwards! 🙂

Splash offers many more activities on various rivers – from canyoning to kayaking. They also offer land-based fun, including quad biking and paint balling. The company was set up back in 1996 and since 2003, ex-military man and passionate explorer/adventurer Pete has been at the helm. Splash has a huge clientele, including schools, youth groups, charities, corporates and military, as well as individuals looking for a thrill.

Taking to the river is such a great way to experience the wonderful Scottish landscape, booking a trip with Splash would certainly add a wow factor to your stay and also provide some amazing memories. Whether you’re visiting Alexander House as a family, a group of friends or you’ve organised a hen weekend away, we’d highly recommend adding a water activity to your itinerary! And who cares if the sun isn’t glaring down – get out there, get the adrenaline pumping, then return to Alexander House for a lovely, relaxing evening. What better plan is there?!

Enjoy a bit of culture during your stay at Alexander House

Lovely as it is to escape the rat race for a few days, it’s also good to engage the brain and enjoy something cultural. But where on earth would you find that if you’re staying at Alexander House?

Well, just under an hour away is the wonderful and vibrant Dundee, Scotland’s fourth biggest city.

Dundee is a coastal city that has grown up on the Firth of Tay estuary. In recent years, there has been significant investment to position Dundee as a cultural centre and destination city, including £1 billion spent on connecting the waterfront to the city centre. This 8km stretch of waterfront is undergoing an incredible transformation, featuring five distinct zones – Riverside, Seabraes, The Central Waterfront, City Quay and Dundee Port. This 30-year project aims to link Dundee’s past to the future and enhance all of its physical, economic and cultural assets.

One of the most exciting things to happen is V&A Dundee. Opened in September 2018, this fantastic museum is right at the heart of Dundee’s regeneration and has already welcomed over 500,000 visitors. Designed by award-winning Japanese architects Kengo Kuma and Associates, the company was awarded the work following an international competition – the museum is Kuma’s first UK project.

The design of V&A Dundee

Kuma’s vison is for everyone to enjoy their visit and socialise in a ‘living room for the city’, a way of reconnecting the city to its historic River Tay waterfront. The architecture is stunning. Cutting-edge technology has been used to ensure a highly sustainable building, which uses renewable energy. Most exciting of all is the 1,650 square metres of gallery space.

Dundee couldn’t be a better location for the V&A’s first foray outside of London. The city is well connected by road and rail to the likes of St Andrews, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. And with Dundee’s airport only a short distance away, you can start to understand why this museum is already well and truly on the map.

What’s on?

The museum has a full and exciting schedule for the year, there will definitely be something for you, from all-day events like the Antiques Roadshow to viewing a new commission by Glasgow-based artist Ciara Phillips.

If the kids are moaning at the thought of a boring museum trip, then Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, which is on until 8 September 2019, should grab their attention! Also, in June there is a sensory-friendly morning with an early opening time for all those who require a more relaxed way to enjoy the museum. All angles have been covered, with fantastic things to attract schools, design for business, families, young people, members and of course all their day visitors.

Now, where to stay?!

Naturally, Alexander House would be just perfect! Enjoy 5-star accommodation in the house itself or choose one of our glamping options – yurts and a cosy cabin on wheels, which would be a perfect retreat for two after a busy day in Dundee!

We look forward to meeting you very soon.

Cosy welcoming home from home, Alexander House is a stunning venue for special occasions

Spring is in the air at AH!

It’s that time of year again – the air smells sweet and the ground is covered with a beautiful carpet of bluebells. Waking up to the stirring sound of birdsong is bliss, it’s a lovely soundtrack that provides an ambient background to early morning activities and, the best part, it’s free to whoever will listen.

May 5th marked International Dawn Chorus Day. If you missed it, why not have a listen to some birds singing on the RSPB website and, better still, get yourself outside! Right now, you can witness plenty of stunning acrobats of nature, Swifts, Swallows, and Martins. If you’re quick, you’ll bag some amazing photos!

Why do birds sing?

Singing, of course, is all about male birds trying to attract a mate. It’s like nature’s very own version of Britain’s Got Talent – birds vying with each other, showing off and trying to convince the females that their fine tunes are proof of their ability to be a fit father! Singing is also a way of males attempting to hold their turf and lay claim to a particular female by singing louder than any others. So that beautiful sound of the dawn chorus is actually all about the males telling the females that they’re still there and, just in case a newcomer has snuck in, the territory is theirs.

Why in the spring do we get to experience such a wonderful natural musical concert? In May and June, our resident bird population is swelled by all the migrant birds visiting from Africa. Listen later in the day as dusk falls and you’ll hear another chorus of singing – this is often provided by male Nightingales trying to lure females for a romantic sunset!

Everyone seems to lead such busy lives, sometimes it’s nice to just take a moment and tune into nature – birdsong is calming and as effective as a mindfulness session, try it!

Spring Holidays in Scotland | Holiday Ideas - Perthshire

Looking for a spring vacation in Scotland?

What better environment in which to enjoy the sound of birdsong than Alexander House. It’s back to nature with all mod cons – breathtaking views, a fantastic area for walking, away from the hustle and bustle of ‘normal’ life with only sheep and cattle as your nearest neighbours. You can enjoy all of this from the very comfortable base that is Alexander House, where you can indulge in a soak in the hot tub whilst sipping a glass of bubbly. Stay in the house itself with family or friends or treat you and your loved one to a cosy retreat in one of our yurts or even our new glamping cabin, Juniper!

We look forward to seeing you!

Alexander House – exploring the local area

We are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes where you can enjoy getting back to nature. But we’re also just a stone’s throw from a plethora of things to do and see. So how might you fill your time during your visit to Alexander House?

Enjoy some retail therapy in Auchterarder

Auchterarder is a charming little town nestled in the quite spectacular Perthshire countryside, with the Ochil Hills visible to the south. Just an hour’s journey from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, the town is accessible from all directions. You may also be aware that Auchterarder is home to Gleneagles, the world-famous hotel and golf course, which is obviously a big attraction.

Auchterarder’s bustling and thriving high street is one of the longest in Scotland, at just over a mile long – for that reason, Auchterarder is fondly known as ‘The Lang Toun’ (long town). It’s also incredibly friendly and there is a wonderful sense of community, where people greet visitors with welcoming smiles. Visit a few times and you’ll soon be on first name terms.

Unlike many high streets, Auchterarder is full of independent shops, run by owners with genuine passion, and variety is what makes the town so interesting. From fashion to tweed jackets and bespoke tailoring, sweet shops to traditional gifts, you’ll find all sorts to buy.

If you fancy eating out you’ll be spoilt for choice. Chocoholics will love the Chocolate Galley, where you can buy handmade chocolates and even book yourself into a chocolate-making workshop. If you’re looking for coffee and cake or a fine dining experience, Max & Ben’s Bistro, Jon & Fernanda’s, Café Kisa, Delivino and The Strathearn are just a few places worth mentioning.

Worried you’ll pile on the pounds during your stay? From Alexander House, Auchterarder is a three-mile walk and a very beautiful one at that – you won’t be disappointed, so make sure you bring your walking boots.

Enjoy an outdoor adventure

Not surprisingly, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor activities, so here are just a few examples:

The award-winning Phoenix Falconry boasts a collection of over 60 falcons, hawks, eagles and owls. Under expert guidance you can enjoy the experience of flying and handling these amazing birds.

The Willowgate Activity Centre, based on the River Tay and just outside Perth, offers a wide range of land- and water-based activities, from archery to kayaking – there is no chance of being bored here! 🙂

If you fancy racking up some miles on two wheels, Scotland is a great choice. Make sure you don’t just stare at the tarmac, the views will take your breath away if the hills haven’t already. Do pop in to Synergy Cycles in Auchterarder for all things cycling related.

Gleneagles might be the ultimate golf course, but if you’re not up to Ryder Cup standard you’ll find other courses nearby that are suitable for all abilities.

If magnificent gardens are more your thing, then a visit to Drummond Castle Gardens will be a must. These formal gardens, with incredible topiary, are amongst the very finest in Europe.

And after all that…

Relax at Alexander House, enjoy the heated swimming pool, hot tub and games room. Treat yourself to some pampering and book a personal beauty treatment. Life doesn’t get much better than this!

Now all you need to do is decide when you’re coming! We’ll look forward to meeting you soon.

Autumn at Alexander House | Holiday House near Gleneagles Perthshire

Reasons to visit AH – to enjoy our spectacular autumn colours in Perthshire

It’s that time of year again. We’ve waved goodbye to our summer visitors and the crisp sound of autumn leaves and the crackling of log fires now welcomes our winter visitors. Being located where we are means we really notice nature and all the changes happening. The chiffchaffs fill the air with song as they migrate, whilst swallows and house martins are only seen on the odd occasion as most have already left for warmer climes. Meanwhile, if you’re really lucky, you may spot one or two of our native bird species such as the Scottish crossbill, capercaillie and crested tit.

Meanwhile, lots of animals will be preparing to hibernate. But if the winter is mild, you may well still see hedgehogs well into November and December. The most obvious signs of autumn are trees and the wonderful palette of crimson, copper, orange, brown and gold that they display. The cooler weather and shorter days trigger trees to stop producing chlorophyll and other pigments, including carotenoid, bring about the beautiful change in colour. Perthshire at this time of year is a spectacular place to visit – dare we say it, it even rivals the Canadian Fall colours!

Here are a few of our favourite places to see autumn in its full glory..

Loch Faskally, which lies less than two miles from Pitlochry in Perth and Kinross, is a man-made reservoir. Built between 1947 and 1950, the dam incorporates a salmon fish ladder that allows over 5,000 salmon to ascend every year. The loch is a very popular tourist attraction and there are plenty of walks to enjoy. Visit during autumn to witness the most spectacular colours of the season.

• No trip to Scotland is complete without visiting the Queen’s View in Perthshire. From this point you can enjoy panoramic and iconic views of Scotland’s best. Queen Victoria visited in 1866 and it immediately became a popular destination, but it’s thought that this vantage point is actually named after Queen Isabella, the wife of Robert the Bruce.

• An easy day trip if you’re staying at Alexander House, Crieff is a traditional Scottish market town set within Perthshire’s stunning scenery. This attractive and bustling town supports a wide variety of local family-run businesses and is a great place to explore. There are lots of coffee shops and places to eat as well!

Still feeling energetic?

The above are just a few of our favourites, but there are so many more – The Hermitage, Dunkeld, Royal Deeside, Drummond Hill, Kenmore, The Trossachs, Glen Affric. And if you’re looking for something unusual to do, have a read of this great article for inspiration.

Need to entertain the kids?

Ditch the mobile devices and get them outside! They might moan for a few moments, but kids are kids and they all love adventures outdoors. Wrap them up, put on some boots and see what happens! The National Trust’s 50 things to do before you’re 12 and Lasso the Moon are both great sources of inspiration for autumn activities – from rolling down a hill to building a den, the best things in life are free and the simplest of pleasures can create the most wonderful memories. Don’t forget to have a camera to hand (even better if you let them use it) and enjoy looking at the photographs over a mug of hot chocolate. 🙂

Things to Do at Alexander House Perthshire

Be prepared

Autumn is a wonderful time to be out and about but make sure you’re prepared for all types of weather – getting cold and/or wet will turn any outing into a miserable experience.

  • Do your research so that you know where you’re going, how long it will take to get there, where toilets are located and where you can get something to eat.
  • Make sure you have outdoor clothing suitable for all the elements – the weather can turn very quickly.
  • Investing in a decent pair of walking boots is one of the best things you can do for your feet. At the very least, pack plasters in case of blisters.
  • Sunglasses can come in very handy.
  • And don’t forget the camera!

All that’s left to do is have an amazing time exploring Perthsire and marvel at what nature offers for free!

Yurt Heather Views

A Beginners Guide to Glamping in Scotland

So what exactly is Glamping?

Well it is often referred to as “Posh Camping” and it certainly doesn’t involve pitching a tent in the pouring rain or dark! The main difference is glamping typically provides a permanent or semi-permanent structure like a yurt, cabin, treehouse, pod, or shepherds hut. The beauty of this is that you don’t need to worry about setting up ‘camp’ and having a few arguments (!) when you arrive.

Yurt Heather | Glamping Yurts Scotland Perthshire

Why not try Glamping in Scotland?

Given the sometimes unpredictable climate in Scotland having a solid structure with heating is a real bonus. Somewhere to escape from the rain and cold and even the midges, as they certainly don’t like fire and smoke!

Staying in a glamping structure gives you a cosy and comfortable base from which to explore the beauty of the local countryside.

When you go glamping you have all the benefits of camping – that is, being close to the great outdoors and wildlife – hearing the owls hooting at night, campfire cooking, star gazing, the wind rustling in the trees, rain drops on canvas in a yurt or bell tent, but you’ll be super cosy inside!

How is Glamping different?

Glamping facilities are typically a good notch above camping, some practical essentials and a few little luxuries, like ensuite bathroom facilities and perhaps a roll top bath, a wood burner, and sometimes even wood-fired hot tubs, heated towel rails, and electric blankets. Now that certainly isn’t roughing it! 🙂

Yurt Heather | Glamping Yurts Scotland Perthshire

You’ll still have to be able to light a fire (don’t worry it’s not tricky and we make it super easy for you) and boil your kettle on the gas stove, campfire or wood burner. The chef can demonstrate their wilderness cooking prowess on the fire pit and provide a meal rustled up in the great outdoors!

Wood-Fired Hot Tub | Luxury Yurt Glamping in Scotland

Glamping places can sometimes be a little quirky too – converted tanks and horseboxes come to mind – but we think glamping should not just be a little different but also comfortable and even luxurious – that’s our AH style!

New to Glamping? Here’s our ‘What to Bring’ Checklist…

Clothing & Footwear

Bring your waterproofs – the best ones to have are the ones that fold up into wee bags, as it could be rain, shine, and hail all in the one walk. We recommend Muck Boots for your wellies, as they have an extra inner that’s more comfy for walking, but gives you full leg coverage for those bogs that definitely come and find you mid walk…., or a good pair of walking boots (fully waterproofed) and a pair of gaiters does just as well if you are going to be romping across the Scottish hills again sometime soon, but they are quite a bit more expensive.

Plenty of Clothes

If you are a newbie to glamping, remember to bring plenty of layers of clothes, as the temperature extremes are greater when you are glamping than in a house. And PJ’s & slipper socks – they are so comfy and warm, and just perfect for curling up in in front of the wood burner.

We also highly recommend a warm hat for when you are sitting in the hot tub, as the rest of you is toasty, but your head gets quite cold in the breeze! A pair of flip flops can also be handy when padding across a wooden deck or path to a hot tub.

Glamping Yurt with Hot Tub | Gleneagles Perthshire Scotland

Absolute Essentials

Definitely remember to bring a torch (not just your phone app one!), as you are going to be outside at some point for sure, and probably in the dark!

If you are a light sleeper – bring ear plugs. Glamping structures are all wind and waterproof, but they are definitely not sound proof – so do remember that you will be able to hear the wind, rain and animals around and about at night. We love the sound of the owls hooting and the wind rustling the trees but perhaps not if you are a light sleeper!

And not forgetting, your sense of adventure!

Food & Drink

Remember those marshmallows or chestnuts to roast on the fire… there’s just something so lovely about the smell of roasting chestnuts on a real fire.

If you want some camp fire cooking inspiration before your next glamping trip – take a look at our easy and fun camp fire recipes.

What NOT to bring!

Embrace not having your hair straighteners and makeup, let your hair go frizzy! Enjoy what nature has given you, and just being you, the deer and squirrels really won’t notice if you’ve painted your face and fingernails and if you’ve got long hair, perfect that french plait before you come away, its a perfect morning standby hairdo. 🙂

Leave the iPad and Bluetooth speaker at home and just disconnect from your busy life and reconnect with a loved one and time spent in the beautiful great outdoors.

ENJOY…

Because we know them, we know the staff and we know the passion they have for their customers, they are local and not to mention that Alexander House really does have everything a hen party could possibly want or need!

FYI, I am a rough rugged outdoors loving male so I just had to check with my wife before continuing, and she confirmed with an excited nod and a smile that luxurious fluffy dressing gowns, butler poured Prosecco, relaxing, rejuvenating facials, a lavish bubbling hot tub and a personal swimming pool, is indeed the sort of thing she would want on a hen do. She gave me the thumbs up, she smiled and hinted that she needs some Alexander House level pampering in her life. Hint taken.:-)

Now these are just some of the fantastic options provided by Alexander House, however they have also teamed up with excellent local providers like ourselves and others to offer you many more options, allowing you to really tailor your hen do to your hen’s desires and needs.

All you need to bring is that party vibe (I’m sure you will!) and you are guaranteed to have the best hen party ever, as the hen or as one of the group.

Wedding Drinks | Gin Cocktails | Strathearn Heather Rose Gin & Prosecco

Heather Rose Gin – the perfect wedding or celebration drink

Created by Strathearn Distillery, at present Scotland’s smallest whisky distillery – their Heather Rose Gin is a great find. And a rare one – each batch producing only 280 bottles. It’s a personal favourite here at AH!

Strathearn Distillerty Heather Rose Gin | Wedding Drinks Ideas

The combination of rose and heather give it slight fruity notes of honey combined with delicate notes of lavender. The subtle colour reflects the swathes of heather on the Perthshire hillsides.

The gin is produced in a two stage process, the first being vapour infusion using a 500 litre pot still with a botanical basket.  Once distilled, this base gin is compounded with additional delicate botanicals to add more flavour and colour.

Stuart from Strathearn Distillery describes Heather Rose as a celebration gin, “ideal as an aperitif, for a special occasion or as an everyday treat.” We think it would make fantastic welcome drinks at your wedding or birthday celebration here at AH!

Strathearn Distillerty Heather Rose Gin | Wedding Drinks Ideas

Discover the botanicals…

Juniper, coriander seeds, orange peel, lemon peel, liquorice root, rose petals and purple heather flowers.

Simply add tonic for a little bit of magic!

The gin has a lustrious mahogany colour which hides a magical secret which can be seen with the addition of tonic. With its combination of rose and heather it takes on a Prosecco character. The colour of the gin changes to a delicate pink when topped up with tonic.

In a chilled champagne flute add one shot of Heather Rose, top up with chilled Fever-Tree (we like the Mediterranean one!) Tonic for the pinkest blush. No garnish or ice required. But lovely with a few raspberries perhaps?

Fancy Gin cocktails instead?

Strathearn Distillery have come up with a fun cocktail using the Heather Rose Gin called Bramble Rose. We like the sound of this – haven’t tried it just yet! Why not give it a go?

Strathearn Distillerty Heather Rose Gin | Wedding Drinks Ideas

Ingredients:
50ml Heather Rose Gin
25ml Lemon Juice
10ml Cane Sugar Syrup
10ml Rose Water
10ml Crème de Mure

Recipe:
Shake first 4 ingredients over ice, then strain into a rocks glass filled fill crushed ice. To finish pour the crème de mure slowly over the top of the drink to bleed through the ice. Garnish with lemon and a fresh bramble.

Enjoy! 🙂
