The pretty town of Pitlochry, many times winner of Scotland in Bloom and Britain in Bloom awards, is a gentle stroll from the Hotel. See pitlochryinbloom.co.uk for examples of their stunning displays. The well kept Victorian main street is filled with small, independent shops with unique merchandise and well worth a browse. The nearby small towns of Aberfeldy and Dunkeld also have a unique character and small interesting boutiques. Ten miles north is the House of Bruar, a shopping experience often described as 'the Harrods of the North'.
