Activities Around Pitlochry


 

Walking
Walking
Pitlochry has walks to suit every walker with a choice of pasture or highland, riverside, woodland and open moorland.
Hill Walks
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.
Gentle Walks
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.
Cycling
Cycling
About 100 yards from the Atholl Palace entrance is 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.
