Tour The Highland Perthshire Town Of
at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands and surrounded by the
most resplendent mountain scenery in Europe, Pitlochry is a gloriously
colourful and vibrant Victorian town with the River Tummel running
along its edge. Pitlochry's fame as a vacation resort dates from
as long ago as the 1860's ensuring that this is an area very proud
of its tradition of hospitality and the extraordinary warm manner
with which visitors are welcomed.
An absolute must for any visitor to Pitlochry is one of the town's
best-loved attractions, Pitlochry Dam and Fish Ladder. Here you
will be enthralled by the sight of salmon negotiating the specially
constructed ladder allowing them to bypass Pitlochry Dam into
man made Loch Faskally.
No vacation in the Pitlochry area is complete without a visit
to " Scotland's Theatre in the Hills ". The Pitlochry Festival
Theatre lies on the banks of the River Tummel and is internationally
renowned for its fine repertoire of drama and comedy.
Near Pitlochry is the conservation village of Moulin, where a
church has stood for at least 1400 years. West of Pitlochry stands
the richly sculptured Pictish Dunfallandy Stone. To the north
is the beautiful Pass of Killiecrankie. The story of the famous
battle in this tree-lined gorge is a feature of the visitor centre.
Further north again is Blair Castle, the magnificent seat of the
Dukes of Atholl with 32 rooms open to the public and a wealth
of arms, porcelain, and paintings.
In fact, you will almost be overwhelmed by the sheer choice of
things to see and do in the Pitlochry area. Walking, fishing,
golfing and a host of sightseeing activities. It's a great place
to visit, and great base location !!
