Strathyre relies mostly on tourism these days, although the Forestry Commission is always much in evidence. In the centre of the village is a monument to Dugald Buchanan who was born in Strathyre in 1716 and died in 1768. He was a poet, evangelist and teacher as well as a translator of the scriptures into Gaelic. The hill race from the village up Stuc a` Chroin every year is now a major event with runners coming from all over Scotland and beyond. Coming right up to date, a recently established music festival held in early summer is proving to be very successful. It features a wide range of music including traditional Scottish, folk and country music as well as jazz and blues.
