I completed my 2nd teacher training placement at Abernethy PS and twice visited the village to get to know the area. The church and grounds are lovely and you can visit the tower on occasion. There is a lovely tea room and suitable local shops and facilities. A place you would love to live in! Midsummer without the murder!

The tearoom changed hands in July 2013 and has been re-named Berryfield Tearoom. The new owners have spent considerable effort and expense in updating the tearoom whilst still retaining the traditional atmosphere of Culdees Tearoom including an open fire in the cold weather! The latter has been supplemented by newly installed underfloor heating and the whole tearoom has benefitted from... More

The best part about Abernethy is just walking around to see the traditional Scottish village buildings. It still has the narrow streets and the feel of days gone by. The village is on the Tay, and there are lots of walks nearby. The round tower must be climbed - it's not to many steps and a great view. The Museum... More

Stopped of in Abernethy on our way to eat at Kerachers restaurant and had a real ale at the Crees Inn. What a nice pub. We then went for a walk round the village . The round tower is impressive. A nice quiet village but sadly all the shops bar one have closed down.

So similar to so many little Scottish towns, - sturdy houses, a couple of shops & pubs - Abernethy has a very nice atmosphere. It also has a Pictish tower (not many of these left) which unfortunately hasn't been open recently.

Situated outside Perth this is a small village with a famous tower..not much else to see but nice to walk around and look at old buildings. East of village there is a garden centre with nice restaurant which has great views of the Tay Valley.

My sister lives here, do I frequently visit. It's close to Perth - so not far away from supermarkets, cinemas, etc. Cute little round tower to climb - not too many steps and a good view at the top. The Tea shop is really reasonably priced - often quite busy. They also provide a really good framing service - you... More

Thank you for the review, we are unlikely to have found this lovely little village without it! We spent a very enjoyable afternoon here, and as previous reviewer said, it is a really interesting museum with friendly staff. The tea shop was excellent, staff welcoming, the food is good and excellent value. But the highlight for us was the Round... More

A few minutes off the motorway, between Kinross and Perth, lies this pleasant wee town. Lots to see, even just walking around the historic village centre. The tower is worth the climb - magnificent views. The wee museum gets a huge thumbs up - great displays and very interesting. The tearoom across the lane from the museum and tower is... More
