"Atholl Palace is a wonderful place to visit. The staff are very helpful and polite, nothing is a problem! The food is amazing and the rooms are made up daily. This is great for either a weekend break or stay for a week. Great for couples or families. The spa is also brilliant and relaxing. Book now and stay, you won't be disappointed!"

Activities in and around Pitlochry

Walking

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 neighbouring 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.

Cycling

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.
