A car is recommended so you can enjoy exploring the area, as there is plenty to visit and see in a reasonably close proximity. However if you're not planning on travelling much, there are good local taxis services from/to the airports and rail stations (local taxis from Coupar Angus or Blairgowrie will give you preferential rates). A bus service to Blairgowrie, Dundee and Perth runs past the Gatehouse, although not very frequent.
