Situated in the region of Perthshire lies a beautiful little village called Fearnan, Scotland. Fearnan is on the north side of Loch Tay and southwest of Aberfeldy. Its main feature is that it's known as a crofting village. As such, it is a great little spot to get a feel for a typical local village in Scotland, as it differs dramatically from the much faster-paced cities in Scotland like Edinburgh and Glasgow. One nice thing to do here is simply soak up the quiet and pristine surrounds of Fearnan, Scotland, or take a look at some of the local cottages.
As well experiencing the friendly village atmosphere firsthand, there are a number of quaint attractions for visitors to see. Check out Loch Tay Pottery to see some beautiful handmade crafts, and on weekends be sure to head to the Fearnan Gallery. This place boasts wildlife artwork, such as paintings and sketches by Keith Brockie. Work by photographer Polly Pullar is also featured.
From Fearnan, Drummond Hill is only a stone’s throw away. At this stunning destination, there are various walking trails where you are able to see arresting views of Scotland’s landscape. If you’re lucky you might even be able to spot some of the local wildlife. An abundance of animals call this area home, including golden eagles, peregrine falcons, and ospreys.
There is a lack of Fearnan, Scotland hostels, as it is just too small for this type of accommodation to be viable. However, there are several larger towns nearby that provide hostels. You can book a hostel in Perth (just over an hour’s drive away), Edinburgh (two-and-a-half-hours’ drive away), Glasgow (an hour away), or Aberdeen (approximately three hours away). Each of these cities have plenty of affordable hostels and are suitable distances away from Fearnan for embarking on a day trip to the village.
