Positioned some eight miles south of historic Perth and enveloped by scenic countryside, the tranquil village of Abernethy promises a beautiful rural escape and a rich heritage dating back to Pictish times. The village was established around the Nethy Burn, which flows down from the Ochil Hills and it is home to several buildings of historic significance, particular Abernethy Round Tower, dating from the 11th Century which features a Pictish symbol stone at its base. Abernethy is served by a quaint tearoom, a general store, a garage, a pub and a handful of inns and guesthouses catering to visitors. There is also a museum and a family-run producer and seller of traditional clootie dumplings. More extensive amenities can be found in nearby Bridge of Earn, Newburgh and larger Perth, including several major supermarkets on the outskirts of the city. Owing to the rural setting, residents of Abernethy have a wealth of outdoor pursuits right on their doorstep, from walking and cycling in the lush countryside, to sailing and water sports on the River Tay. Nursery and primary education is provided locally at Abernethy Primary School, followed by secondary schooling at Perth High School. Abernethy is approximately 20 minutes' drive from Perth via the M90, which offers convenient road links to Edinburgh in approximately one hour via the Queensferry Crossing.
