Comrie Croft is around an hour by road from Glasgow or Edinburgh. Go north past Stirling on the M9. At Dunblane the M9 changes into the A9 towards Perth. After about 3 miles take the junction left signposted for Crieff (A822). Comrie Croft Bikes and Hostel is set back from the A85 between Crieff (4.5 miles – from Crieff follow signs for the A85 towards Crianlarich) and Comrie (2 miles). We are clearly signposted from the main road (200m).

 BUSES & COACHES

The Croft is served by up to 17 buses a day from Perth/Crieff/ Comrie on Stagecoach route 15.  Ask the driver for Comrie Croft.  These connect with a variety of train, coach and other bus services to the north, east and south. To the west the no. 15 service continues to Loch Lomond National Park at St Fillans 5 times a day (except Sunday).

A local service for Saturday evening pickup/drop off from Crieff/Comrie will be available.   Details will be advertised locally.
