Specialising in wines made from strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants and more – plus a selection of stunning ciders – there are few better ways to gain an appreciation of your surroundings with glass in hand. Slàinte! 

Craigtoun Country Park

A glorious green space filled with family fun and no small amount of scenic beauty, Craigtoun Country Park is a must-visit when holidaying at Landal Piperdam. Take a trip on the Rio Grande Railway, visit the boating lake, play crazy golf, enjoy zip lines, trampolines, the active Trim Trail and more!

There’s a café in the park when you’re ready to reward yourself for all that activity, or a picnic space if you’d rather dine in the open air. And when you’ve finished that, there’s even more to explore.

Blair Athol distillery

A glorious gem located at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, Blair Athol distillery uses local water to create a range of wonderfully mellow malts. Take a tour of the distillery and enjoy a sample afterwards, or you could even organise a private tutored tasting with several drams to enjoy.

With legendary single malts including Talisker, Lagavulin and more made, there’s everything to suit the single malt lover. Take a bottle back to your accommodation and enjoy an evening dram surrounded by the stunning Scottish countryside, it’s the best whisky you’ll ever enjoy.

Lochleven Castle

You’ll enjoy making holiday history at Landal Piperdam, but venture slightly further afield and you can explore it too. Lochleven is one of Scotland’s oldest castles. Here Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in the 16th Century, later escaping never to see Scotland again!

Stand in the tower house rooms where Mary was once captive and wonder how she ever coped without a hot tub and relaxing therapies. Or you can explore the island’s beauty at your leisure. It’s an unmissable experience.

Broughty Ferry

An attractive town and shoreline resort, Broughty offers an equally interesting history but plenty of modern charms too. There are beaches, a promenade, Castle Museum and much more. The centre of Dundee is also just a short distance away if you fancy something a little more vibrant.

The shoreline of the River Tay is well worth exploring, and perfect for blowing the cobwebs away. And when you’ve finished your seafront wander, you can enjoy some fantastic pubs and restaurants.
