Extreme Ironing

extreme ironingFar from going flat, this extreme sport is steaming and gliding into the next decade. And probably the one after that too.

Extreme ironing is at its most extreme in the Scottish Highlands, so why not bring your iron and board to Fortingall, and go in search of that once-in-a-lifetime location for your most extreme ironing experience ever.

We have mountains, crags, rivers and islands, plus castles, distilleries and steam railways. So, the next time you’re updating your extreme ironing bucket list, take a look at a map of Highland Perthshire, iron out the creases and use your imagination to plan your next unique holiday.

It’s only a matter of time before someone sets up their extreme ironing board in the Ewe Bar.

Definition: "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt.”

By Road

redsquirrel 500From the A9 – The Red Squirrel Strathtay Route

Take the A827 heading west towards Aberfeldy – exit is located at Ballinluig 8 miles north of Dunkeld and 5 miles south of Pitlochry. Take next right after Logierait – signposted Pitnacree, Strathtay and Weem. Much of this minor road runs alongside the River Tay – the scenery is simply fantastic and there is every chance you will see red squirrels – this is one of their favourite haunts.

You will pass the entrance to Clunie Gardens on this road – remember this and return to visit. They are inspirational, refreshingly natural and non-commercial with resident red squirrels. A genuine 5-star experience.

At Weem, turn right onto the B846 (Kinloch Rannoch road) and head straight towards Coshieville (about 5 miles) passing Castle Menzies – another must visit.

Turn left at Coshieville, just after a sign announcing: “Fortingall Hotel Welcomes You – Only 3 miles to go”.

As you arrive in Fortingall, the Fortingall Hotel is on the right, immediately after the church.




whitedeer 500From the west – The White Deer Route

Take the A85 to Lix Toll and take the turn off for Killin. Go over the Falls of Dochart bridge and drive through Killin. Follow the A827 along the north side of Loch Tay for 10 miles. When you reach the small village of Fearnan, take a left turn signposted Fortingall, and follow this road for 2 miles. After crossing the River Lyon and the turn off into Glen Lyon, look out for white deer in the field on your left. You then pass the entrance to Glen Lyon estate on the left and enter the village of Fortingall. Just after the thatched cottages you will see the hotel on the left, with the yew tree and church at the far end of the car park.
