The village of Blair Atholl is one of the last Perthshire outposts before going north through the Grampians at the Drumochter Pass. It is popular for holidays, hill-walking, hunting and fishing. Blair Atholl Mill in the village centre is a rebuilt corn mill where you can follow the various stages of the process. The Atholl Country Collection in the old school house gives a good insight into this area's past. The museum exhibits tools and implements made by blacksmiths and wheelwrights from several periods of the region's antiquity.
