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.
“Unpretentious cosy luxury in a beautiful Location” We visited in February, and cannot recommend more highly My partner and I are both keen walkers, and this is the perfect place for location and accommodation There are a multitude of walks of varying length and abilities straight from the door. The secluded private hot tub on the patio was perfect after our long walks to ease aching muscles and view the beautiful landscape The cabin was inviting and perfectly appointed from the under-floor heating in the bathroom to the cosy wood burning stove. Our evenings were spent either relaxing by the log burner grazing on food from the fantastic local Deli, or in the friendly pub just a 10 minute walk away Jo from Gloucestershire
"Great Place" Went as a couple for a romantic get away. We were very lucky with surprisingly good weather in Feb, and we the only lodge occupied for the 3 nights we spent there. Easy enough to find and clear instructions given via email beforehand - as get settled into the lodge and we'll pop in and show you some of the features. Yvonne came to show us about the fire and talk through the hot tub use. She was very nice and helpful with tips of walks and places to visit - and very approachable, though we had no further contact (as in totally unobtrusive!) The cabin itself was very nice - good central heating system, comfortable sitting area and nice bedroom. The outside hot tub was fantastic, even in cold weather we made great use of it. We took a few drives out to surrounding areas, and went on a few walks. And plenty to visit in the area. In the evenings we would walk down to the local pub 5-10 mins or Pitlochry itself 10-15 mins. All the places we went to were very nice and welcoming, plenty of open fires etc. The walk at night was no problem at all - partly along a quiet road, and there is a torch provided in the lodge which we found useful for warning the occasional passing car. All in all we had a great time - great lodge and hot tub, great location, and plenty of things to keep you occupied, or quiet peaceful space to relax in. Chris from Glasgow
