Pitlochry has colourful events throughout the year - Highland Games Days, Etape Caledonia, The Enchanted Forest, New Years Day Street Party and the lively Cateran Fest.
Perthshire is the outdoor activity playground of Scotland. We have the UK's first static Bungee jump, white water sports for the energetic, superb walking and cycling routes for those looking for peace and quiet and Hunting, Shooting and Fishing for the traditionalists.
If you are staying with us for a short break or romantic weekend are probably expecting to have a dip in the hot tub and then to cosy in front of your log burning stove. However, here are lots of marked walks in the area from low level loch-side ambles to more strenuous mountain climbing to tear you away from your lodge.
Pitlochry also has lots of entertainment and action to tempt you with many pubs providing live entertainment several times per week.
March and April see an eclectic mixture of touring before the main season begins in May, running until October. In recent year there has been a late special running in November followed by either a musical or pantomime in December.
May brings the Atholl Highlanders Parade and Highalnd Games at Blair Atholl (just 7 miles from Kinnaird).
The Second Saturday in September is always Pitlochry Highland Games - a fanatastic event enjoyed by locals and visitors.
September brings The Horse Trials to Blair Castle. Not just for equine enthusastics, it has a fantastic country fair feel about the week long event.
Glenshee, the most extensive ski area in Scotland with 36 runs and 22 lifts, is a 40 minute drive from Kinnaird and opens in December each year. In recent years the snow has been very good and hope to stay open until mid April each year.
My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay celebrating our 5th anniversary. This was our second visit and was faultless! Beautiful surroundings, lovely cabin which has everything you could need. Hot tub is brilliant, onlooking the gorgeous views. We are about to book again for next year. J Milne
We booked the premier love cabin for 3 nights for our mini moon - simply To relax and chill out undisturbed after the stress of the wedding and then immediately followed by Xmas! And relax we did - the hot tub was lovely! Always warm and a good size - and surprisingly private! I had thought the lodges looked a little close together when we arrived but they are set out so you feel like nobody else is there with amazing views of the mountains! There was plenty of wood for the log burner to cosy by on an evening and close enough to walk into Pitlochry to take in the views and some fresh air! The cottage had everything we needed and was personalised with 'Just Married' signs which was a lovely touch - we wish we had stayed longer! We also used the on site spa uniq which was also a highly recommended experience! Will definitely return and will recommend to others xxx The Graydons, Sunderland
