Situated 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
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.
A 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.
Angling Club. Pitlochry Angling Club offers a variety of salmon,
trout and grayling fishing around Pitlochry, Perthshire in the
Highlands of Scotland. The Club waters have a high reputation
and include stretches of the River Tummel and River Garry.
Walks. The six walks range from 3 to 11.5 miles. They offer
lowland, upland, river and lochside, and woodland and hard road
characteristics. They never stray far away from Pitlochry itself
and the walks can be interchanged to duit your time and preferences.

things to see and do in the Pitlochry area. Walking, fishing,
golfing and a host of sightseeing activities. It's a great place
