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.
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
Thank you Gill for the sue of the bungalow, it was great for the grand children, they loved the freedom of the house and garden, watching the birds and feeding them, sadly no squirrels. Janice thank you for preparing the cottage for our arrival, you always have it so welcoming. Many thanks again & will look forward to coming back.Ruth Black (Fife)
