Pitlochry is a bustling and vibrant Highland town. It’s a popular spot for visitors, with an enviable variety of attractions, eating places, shops. Yet Perthshire’s rugged landscapes and wild waters are just a stone’s throw away.

At Pitlochry Festival Theatre, “the theatre in the hills”, you can see all six of its fabulous summer shows in just six days. And with delicious pre-theatre dinners served in its restaurant, it’s the complete entertainment package. Also nestled in the hills is the new Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre, a fascinating interactive exhibition showcasing the incredible engineering feats of the hydro-electric projects of the 1950s.

There are plenty of great cafés, pubs and restaurants, such as Morton’s Coffee Lounge, Victoria’s, The Old Mill Inn, The Escape Route Café and, just outside the town, the Moulin Inn.


The Enchanted Forest, at nearby Faskally Wood, is a hugely popular event taking place every September/October. It’s a sound-and-light show like no other, set in stunningly beautiful woodland and offering treats, surprises and a feast for the senses.

Shopping is a delightful experience in Pitlochry, with kilts and tweeds at Macnaughton’s, gifts at Honest Thistle, festive treats all year round at The Christmas Emporium, foodie heaven at The Scottish Deli and books at Pitlochry Station Bookshop. For unique local products, don’t miss Edradour Distillery, the smallest traditional distillery in Scotland, or Heathergems, the only place in the world where you can buy jewellery made from natural heather stems.

And, if you want to explore the great outdoors, you can head to nearby Black Spout Wood, Craigower walk, Pitlochry Golf Club, Nae Limits adventure activities or the Explorers’ Garden.
