Nethercraig Holiday Park

David Bellamy Conversation AwardNethercraig Holiday Park is a Visit Scotland 4-star retreat in the heart of the Angus Glens - yet only four miles from the village of Alyth. The park, with well spaced out accommodations, has spectacular views across the Angus countryside. On the border of Angus and Perthshire, it is the perfect base from which to explore the vast area. Due to the rural feel of the park it's hard to believe that Dundee with it's attractions, shops and nightlife is only half an hour away! 

There is an abundance of country sports in the local area such as fishing, clay pigeon shooting and horse riding. Not to mention the many opportunities to play golf, with two fantastic courses in Alyth, both within a 10-minute drive of the park. There are a further two in Blairgowrie, the next town over - where you can also find a large supermarket and tourist info. The world renowned courses of St Andrews are under an hour away! Golf enthusiasts can enjoy discounts for local courses, available at Nethercraig reception.

We have Holiday Homes and luxurious Lodges for hire and for sale. We also welcome touring caravans and campers, who have their own sheltered area on the park. We have glamping pods for hire too.

Glamping:  We now have superb glamping pods!   We regret, however, that they are not available until the Government restrictions have been further lifted.  They sleep 4 people (1 double and 2 single beds), with fridge, microwave, television, heater and kettle.  There is a porch with a picnic bench.  Please bring your own cooking equipment and sleeping bags, towels etc, just as if you were going camping. Check out our website for more pictures and information. Pets welcome in two of the four pods. Children are welcome , of course; there is a play area, an enclosed play park and a football field for them to play in.  Please call us if you would like to make a booking for later in the summer.

Facilities on the park or nearby:

  • We have a small shop on site, where you can buy the essentials.
  • There are a laundry, toilets and showers.
  • We have a private, on-park 20-acre woodland walk complete with a stunning pond.  
  • There is an enclosed play park, a football field and a golf practice net         


The long-distance walking trail, the Cateran Trail, goes past the Park making it the perfect overnight stop or just a great day walk.

We take bookings over Christmas and New Year. Please call us on 01575 560204 to discuss your requirements and to book.

Alyth:  There are shops, pubs and restaurants in Alyth and the Strathmore Golf Centre welcomes visitors; their good food, friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices make it ideal for meals at any time of the day.

The Alyth Golf Course has an 18-hole and they have recently taken over a 9-hole from what was the Glenisla Golf Course.

Blairgowrie has the Rosemount and Lansdowne Courses.

Wildlife friendly:  Nethercraig has a David Bellamy Gold Award, given as a result of our acres of woodland, with wildlife trails, plus bird boxes ,and our pond. You can see roe deer and hares, red squirrels and mink, buzzards, herons, pheasants and many songbirds.  For information on Glenisla check out
