Pitlochry in the beautiful region of Perthshire is a hidden gem for travellers wishing to explore the surrounding area and beyond. With the main trunk road (A9) to Inverness and the north skirting the town and the main rail link passing through it, the town makes an ideal stopping off point or base for a truly Scottish Highland break.
Pitlochry is surrounded by a variety of beautiful landscapes, from the magical forest around Loch Faskally, to the heights of Ben y Vrackie, which makes up for its lack of munro status by looking dramatic, the rolling pastures of Perthshire and the flowing rivers Tummel & Tay.
The Queen's View - said to be Queen Victoria's favourite vista, takes the breath of many visitors each year as the light changes over the shimmering loch and the great mountain, Schiehallion in the background. However, if you should tire of this pastoral feast, there are many other things to look at.
