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.
We both had a lovely time, nice & peaceful just want be both want. Enjoyed seeing our daily visits of two red squirrels (well fed) and also a bird of prey in the garden. We hope to see you again in February.John and Cathy (Canada)
