Alexander House, Auchterarder, Perth & Kinross, AuchterarderPH3 1PW, United Kingdom

3 miles off the main A9 road North (or South!) just outside the town of Auchterarder. A 4x4 is useful year round, and totally necessary in snow, however a parking area is provided at the base of the drive for particularly cold periods. From the main A9 take the Gleneagles exit. At the top of the slip road turn right towards Glendevon and away from Gleneagles. After approximately 1 mile take the turning on the left signposted Duchally House Hotel. About 2 miles from the turn off you will see a road off to the right, leading away up the hill. You will find the AH logo on trees to direct you up the 1 mile long driveway.
