Things to Do in Pitlochry

Pitlochry is so renowned for the traditional country pursuits of Fishing & Golf that these both have a section each, and we are happy to offer packages which include green fees and fishing.


Pitlochry has walks to suit every walker with a choice of pasture or highland, riverside, woodland and open moorland.

Gentle Walks

For gentle strolls by rivers there is the historical Soldiers Leap in Killiecrankie, or Loch Faskally forest walks in Pitlochry. Walks over hills include Craigower Hill, behind the golf course, which rewards an up hill walk of an hour or so with spectacular views, or a walk from Port-Na-craig, by the festival theatre, over a hillside filled with ancient monuments such as a stone circle and burial mounds, to the neighboring valley of Strathtay.

Hill Walks

For the more serious walker there is Ben-Y-Vrackie (2759ft) with views, on a clear day, up lochs Tummel and Rannoch to the islands off the West Coast and south to Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh. Local Munros (mountains over 3000ft) include Ben Lawers and Schiehallion (meaning 'the Fairy Mountain' in Gaelic). It is known that, as you walk up Schiehallion on midsummers day, your shadow jumps from side to side. While this may have a rational scientific explanation, many believe it to be evidence of fairies playing with your shadow.


About 100 yards from the Atholl Palace entrance is Perthshire's most dynamic bike shop, where you can hire bikes, tandems, tag-along's and any required equipment. Kevin or Malcolm will also be able to give you route maps and suggest a route which suits your abilities.

Garden Diary

It happens every year. You get completely caught out when you hear the first birdsong of spring and, to me, it happened at 5am a few weeks back. Dosing quietly in bed I thought it was part of my dream, the sweet, melodic singing but it wasn’t, it was a male blackie singing outside my bedroom window and when you listen to his song you can only think......how rewarding life can sometimes be.
