A quite delightful Victorian town nestling in the Perthshire Highlands amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in Europe, Pitlochry has been a popular holiday resort for over a hundred years. Enjoy distilleries, castles, the fish ladder and dam, the famous Pitlochry Theatre, great shopping, and superb local walks. Nearby Queens View and the visitor centre at Killiecrankie are well worth a visit.

Pitlochry is a fantastic place for easy walks either north towards Killiecrankie or south along the river and across the bridge to the Pitlochry Festival Theatre. Golfers can be satisfied with a 'hidden gem' of a course in town: The Pitlochry Golf Club is a golf course with stunning views and some challenging holes.

Pitlochry

Blair Atholl Distillery on the south side of the town offers guided tours around one of the best known distilleries with a free dram available at the end. There is an excellent whisky gift shop as well as a coffee shop. Hidden away in woods 3 miles (5km) east of the town is Edradour Distillery. Founded in 1825 by a group of farmers, this is one of the most delightful little distilleries in Scotland - the smallest in Scotland.
