Comrie is a small village in Strathearn, half a dozen or so miles west of Crieff. The old part of the village lies on the north bank of the River Earn, and is home to shops, cafes and guest houses, whilst on the south side is the large part of the village called Dalginross, much of which is modern housing, although old properties line the main road south from Dalginross Bridge. The village is surrounded by good walking country, and Loch Earn a few miles further west has a water sports centre. This means that Comrie is a popular destination for tourists, and it is also just close enough to Perth for commuters.

The main road through the village is the A85, which has to negotiate a couple of right angled bends as it winds through the narrow, car lined streets. This can cause hold ups, particularly for large vehicles, but the geography of the surrounding landscape restricts options for a bypass. The only other classified road is the B827, which heads south, climbing out of Glen Artney and crossing the hills to Greenloaning on the A9, and so Stirling.

Junction

The junction between the A85 and B827 lies at the western end of the main street. It is a simple T junction, with minimal signage, meaning it can be easily missed. The B827 heads south and quickly crosses the bridge, and this actually feels like a wider road than the A85. Directly opposite the junction is Melville Lane, the entrance to the small car park for the Royal Hotel and a few properties.
