Kinnoull Shed

The Kinnoull Shed is the perfect place to host your next event. 

Conveniently located less than ten minutes from Perth city centre, our old forestry workers shed has been developed into an ideal base for group events in the forest.

Set in stunning Kinnoull Hill, the shed has access to a number of waymarked trails with magnificent views over the river Tay. There's also an arboretum (a tree collection), the Coronation Road (an ancient right of way leading to Scone) and a permanent orienteering course. Head to the British Orienteering website to find out how to download course maps.

Keen mountain bikers can also enjoy the bike park at nearby Deuchny Hill.

The top right image shows the interior of the shed with skylights, glass-panelled bifolding doors, tables and chairs. The bottom image is another angle of the interior showing heaters, a projector screen and a row of kitchen cupboards with a worktop on the opposite wall. The Kinnoull Shed has two toilets (one accessible), tables and chairs to seat 25 people. It is heated and has a versatile covered outdoor area perfect for big lunches. There is a small kitchen area with a sink and hot water urn as well, so nobody has to go uncaffeinated!

Ample parking is available at the Kinnoull Hill Jubilee car park.
