Mini guide to Pitlochry

     

Located midway between Edinburgh and Inverness in the centre of Scotland, the spa town of Pitlochry is a popular tourist spot in the Perthshire Highlands, known for its marvellous Victorian architecture, awesome scenery and the Pitlochry Dam.

The main sight in Pitlochry is the hydro electric dam where you can view the 'fish ladder', a series of interconnecting pipes that fish use to get up to the Tummel River. There is also a dam exhibition centre where you can see some of the workings of the dam, while the beautiful Loch Faskally is the dam's creation.

Pitlochry has numerous restored Victorian buildings, best seen on Atholl Road, which runs through the centre of town, while the Blair Atholl Distillery at the southern end of Atholl road is well worth a look, especially if you fancy a tipple. Additionally, the town also has a wide range of specialist tourist shops and woollen mills.

You will also find plenty of eateries and public houses in Pitlochry and it is lively both by day and at night. One of Pitlochry's biggest claims to fame is the summer Festival Theatre, affectionately known as 'Scotland's theatre in the hills'.

Farther afield is the Pass of Killiecrankie Visitor Centre which celebrates the famous 1689 Jacobite battle, while the Queen's View over Loch Tummel is just to the west and the 13th century Blair Castle to the north. It's easy to explore the scenic Perthshire Highlands from Pitlochry and the thriving market town of Perth, just to the south of Pitlochry.

Pitlochry lies on the main A-9 Perth-Inverness road and five trains per day arrive here from Edinburgh and three per day from Glasgow. Stagecoach buses depart Perth hourly and Edinburgh's Turnhouse Airport is the most convenient airport to fly into.
