Living in beautiful Inchture

Inchture lies between Dundee and Perth on the northern side of the Firth of Tay, approximately within 9 miles (14 km) from Dundee and 13 miles (21 km) from Perth. Bypassed by the A90 trunk road and serviced by a flyover junction onto the road, it has become a comfortable commuter locality for travelling to Dundee and further afield.

Sheltered by surrounding hills and its southerly location in the Gowrie gives it a low rainfall and is shielded by cold north winds. Summers are warm, and sunshine is high in Inchture.

It is thought that in the Middle Ages, monks brought new varieties of apples and pears to the area. Orchards flourished while vineyards grew on slopes near the River Tay. The traveller preacher John Wesley described the area as "pleasant and fruitful."
