Pitlochry has shops and restaurants to meet all tastes, from supermarket for self-catering to stocking up on hand crafted winter woollies and from traditional highland fayre to hiring a bike. Golfers can enjoy the local 18-hole golf course (par 69).
There are excellent walks to suit a variety of abilities, either hillside or along a fascinating stretch of the River Tummel. Visit the salmon ladder, hydraulic dam and the Recreation Ground where weekly summer cultural events are held including pipe bands and Highland and Scottish dancing.
The Festival Theatre boasts a busy summer season of 6 plays performed in repertoire arranged in such a way that any or all can be attended within the same week.
The winter season at the theatre includes the Winter Words literary festival and visiting Ballet, Opera and Orchestra.
There are also award winning workshops (visual, Performance and Creative Arts) and many foyer events, Sunday concerts, a cafe, restaurant and art gallery.
There are also plenty of activities geared specifically towards children including a large play ground and putting green. There is a swing park within 5 minutes walk of the cottage.
I would just like to say what a wonderful week we have had here. We hope to come back.Debbie & Stuart
We have had a wonderful time staying at Atom Crow Cottage, it is very comfortable and has everything we needed, with fantastic views. It has been a fabulous base for our many walks walks including Ben Vrackie, the Clunie walk, Black spout wood, and Loch Faskally. We hardly used the car! Had a great day out at Blair Atholl and saw the highland games. Also we had a lovely day at queens view walking in the forests.Helen, Neil & Matthew (Age 10)
