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 Peaceful weekend, many thanks to Gill & Janice - Our two year old especially loved the squirrels.Boyle/Gray Family
Thank you so much Gill for your kindness & Janice for maintaining a beautiful, homely cottage. So much to see & do in such a short space of time. We have loved the much needed rest. So peaceful and comfortable. We would definitely recommend Scone Palace, but we were highly disappointed with Crieff. ' The plaice to be' is great for fish and chips. Thank you thank you thank you.Shirley Nelson
