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.
Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful cottage. It was the perfect location for us to enjoy all the sights of Pitlochry and the surrounding areas. Climbing Ben Vrackie was probably the highlight of our trip. The many walking paths were incredible. A completely experience than our lives in Florida.

Enjoyed our stay it was nice and quiet. Our dog enjoyed out in the garden with the different smells. The squirrels came out both mornings but wouldn't stay long enough to get a photo.William & Catherine
