Forter Castle lies an hour’s drive from Perth, surrounded by quintessentially Scottish landscapes across Glenisla, free to roam and enjoy as you please. Some 400 years ago, warring Argyll’s tried to burn it down – thankfully, unsuccessfully. Lovely restored and refurbished by current owners the Pooley family, this Castle is the ultimate group getaway. Comfortably sleeping up to 16 people, with beds so large they had to be sawed in half and hoisted through windows rather than through doors, we can only apologise in advance for the inevitable first bicker over who nabs which bedroom.
How much Scottish immersion you subject yourselves to is up to you, but we highly encourage an afternoon with Charles Crombie. The local Action Man can put on Highland Games in the garden suitable for everyone – archery, air rifle, cross bowing, or our favourite axe throwing. Kilts not obligatory.
