Pitlochry is ideally situated to use as a base to explore the rest of Scotland, but with so much to see and do within Perthshire you might find that you run out of time to venture any further afield.
There are a wide variety of historic sites and spectacular views of mountains, glens, lochs and rivers close to Pitlochry. Within half an hour you can be at the famous Blair Castle and gardens, the Killiekrankie Pass, the Queen's View or Dunkeld whose attractions vary from its 13th Century Cathedral to the popular Beatrix Potter Exhibition.
The Pitlochry Tourist Office (visitscotland) gives free leaflets and advice on local walks, boating, sailing, fishing, golfing etc. It also keeps you up to date on seasonal events and attractions.
For the thrill seekers there are numerous options of more adventurous activities to be found. Activities such as rock climbing, whitewater rafting, canyoning, sailing and horse-riding are all arranged by local companies and meet approved safety and environmental standards.
Lovely stay as usual no sighting of squirrels at all but nuts put out every day. Nut dissapeared during the night. Had a visit from 3-4 pheasants every day. (We will be back)Bob & Lynn Webb
So lovely to be back again, was here in December 2014. Have had a lovely week, cottage views are spectacular. We put food out for the birds and squirrels everyday. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have had this opportunity. Many thanks and best wishes from us all. Thanks Gill!Sharon & Kirsty
