Fans of the wildly romantic Outlander series may recognise the Redcoats but the Battle of Killiecrankie took place 40 years earlier, in July 1689, than the action in Outlander, which is set in the 1730's.
This annual event is a colourful celebration of a turbulent time in Scottish history with horses, costumes, stalls and a Zip Wire!
The 2018 battle takes place on 28th and 29th July 2018, from 11am to 5pm, and you can read more about it on the Soldiers of Killiecrankie website
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! Alison and Rob - Elgin Room Tip: We had the fourth cabin up and I loved it! GoatsElgin Trip Advisor Review
We had a few days in a one-bed lodge, idea was to 'get away from it all'. Enough privacy to do just that, and the hot tub certainly did it's job to sit back, relax, enjoy the sun and the stunning views around Pitlochry. Andy was very helpful, as was Jane. Everything you are likely to need was there for you, clean and tidy too. Have told a few friends of our experience...all very positive. Many thanks - hope to return. Tripadvisor 3
