For a small town, at the edge of the Cairngorms National Park, Pitlochry has a surprising range of activities and attractions.
For walkers Pitlochry and Perthshire offers every type of walk you could wish for - fragrant forest walks by the rivers, including Britains tallest tree and Europe's oldest tree, challenging Monroes and cliff climbing, historical trails via distilleries, and gentle strolls through ancient farmland. You will find several specialist walking books to browse at By The Brae.
For cyclists there is a similar variety of routes, over mountains, through woods and along country roads. Our Local Bike Shop has maps and information about them all.
There is also an increasing number of adventure sports for the very energetic - the newest is the UK's first static Bungee Jump which has just opened 2 miles out of Pitlochry.
Pitlochry has numerous restaurants, cafes and take aways to suit every taste and dietary requirement. From the award winning Fish and Chip shop, that offers gluten free fish suppers, to the five star Fonab Castle Brasserie Pitlochry will be able to satisfy your taste.
Despite the "Big Freeze" we loved to stay here. There is always much to do and to see, coming back in the afternoon to this lovely cottage feels like coming home.Chris and Karen
