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.
Just returned from our second visit to Kinnaird Woodland Lodges. We were there last year in January 2013 when it snowed and it was just perfect.We were actually scared to book again in case it didn't quite live up to the experience! We booked last minute for 2 nights and I can honestly say it was just as enjoyable! The lodges are cosy and warm and well stocked with everything you could need, the log burner is lovely to come back in to after sitting in the hot tub! The little town of Pitlochry is really nice if you want to venture out for a meal or a walk about. We wanted a complete do nothing weekend which is what we had. We even sat and watched a firework display in the hot tub! Thank you Andy and Jane for another lovely stay. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely brilliant, didn't want to leave. All information given prior to and at arrival was really thorough and welcoming.The lodge has everything you could need for a short stay and more.Little touches such as washing up liquid,toilet rolls,spices,teabags are really helpful as you don't always think of these when packing to get away.Although there were houses and other lodges nearby, it was so peaceful and relaxing, helped by the log fire and the lovely robes supplied for dipping in and out the hot tub.Worth every penny and will recommend to anyone looking for a lovely weekend away.
