An unusual small estate on the edge of the Highlands with beavers

Directions

On Google maps, we can be found by looking for ‘Bamff Farms, Alyth’. Sometimes GPS has led people astray, so here are more precise directions:

From Edinburgh to Blairgowrie

map_edinburgh_to_alythTake the M90 over the Forth Bridge signposted for Perth. Leave the M90 after the Friarton Bridge over the Tay and follow the signs for Braemar (A93), through Bridgend , and then Blairgowrie.

From Glasgow to Blairgowrie

Take the A9 at the Broxden roundabout just west of Perth and stay on it until the turning for Luncarty. Go through Luncarty and Stanley the bear right for Blairgowrie, right again at T junction and left for Braemar/Blairgowrie at the junction with A 93.

From Blairgowrie to Alyth

map_blairgowrie_to_alythDrive through Blairgowrie, going left at the traffic lights, cross the River Ericht, take the A926 out of Blairgowrie, signposted for ‘(Alyth)’ and Kirriemuir. Look out for the signs for Alyth shortly after New Alyth and turn left off the A926. Drive straight through Alyth, leaving the Square to the right. The parish church is straight ahead. Cross the bridge over the Alyth Burn and swing left up the Bamff Road. Leave the church on your right.

From Alyth to Bamff

map_alyth_road_turnoff

Follow the Bamff Road, signposted for Glenshee and Bridge of Cally for 2.5 miles.

map_alyth_to_bamff

After a sharp left hand bend, signed Glenshee, Bridge of Cally, (Glenisla is to the right) you will see the lodge at the end of the drive to Bamff . Turn off the road (to the right) and up the drive – about two thirds of a mile.

Follow the second sign ‘Old Brewhouse’ at the junction as you approach the house.

If you miss the drive, there is a farm road one mile further on, on the right. Go right at the partially ruined steading and you will arrive at the back of the house. The Old Brewhouse is on the left and you may drive in and  park next to it.  Our back door is on the right. Ring the (single) doorbell if no-one is there to greet you.

From the North

You may approach by the Tullymurdoch/Alyth road from the A93, or from the west from Bridge of Cally take the Drimmie Road. If you are approaching from Bridge of Cally go left at a sign for Bamff, then after Mains of Creuchies go right(for Alyth).  You will see the Bamff farm road to your left adter a few yards.  Carry on for another half mile and take the next left, marked Bamff.
