delightful Victorian town nestling in the Perthshire Highlands amidst some of
the most beautiful scenery in Europe, Pitlochry has been a popular holiday
resort for over a hundred years.
The Atholl Palace Hydro with its white turrets sits elegantly above the thickly wooded hills around Pitlochry and provides a stunning sight for those approaching the town from the south.
Famous for its Festival Theatre, salmon ladder and woollens shops, Pitlochry is centrally placed for exploring the scenic beauties of the Perthshire Highlands.
In Blair Atholl, see the white-turreted Blair Castle with its superb collections of paintings and armoury, then learn about more humble ways of life at the Atholl Country Collection, the Blair Atholl Mill, a working oatmeal mill, or at the Clan Donnachaidh Centre at Bruar.
Some of Scotland's finest salmon and trout angling is enjoyed hereabouts, particularly on the River Tay.
Round off a memorable day by watching the sunset over the picture-postcard Queen's View, where there is also a Visitor Centre.
