Located in the berry fields between Perth and Blairgowrie, the Strawberry Shop is a well-stocked, well-organised roadside stall of the type too rare around Scotland's agricultural areas. The custom-built steel shed is a genuine showcase for the seasonal bounty of berries, currants, apples, damsons and plums picked on the surrounding fields, with the chance to pick up lesser-known varieties of strawberry and raspberry that taste great but aren't sought by the supermarkets. Fridges, shelves and tables carry an impressive selection of grocery and deli items, much of it from small Scottish producers, while a great selection of homemade jams and homebaking underline the straightforward, personal touch that makes this an informal but very worthwhile landmark on the A93. Run by Claire Leslie Fruits, they also take their berries to stalls at Edinburgh and Glasgow farmers' markets.
