The town of Pitlochry and surrounding area provides a diverse range of attractions with some of Scotland’s most astounding scenery as the backdrop.
There are many places to visit within a mile or two which we would recommend taking in on your holiday or short break.
The dam was built in the 1940’s during the Hydro Electric expansion across the Scottish Highlands.
An award winning new visitors centre opened in 2016, telling the story of the Tummel Tigers it has views over the dam form the cafe and a great selection of local gifts.
The walk across the dam and the view over Loch Faskally is a magical experience. Why not continue this beautiful walk around the loch and up to Loch Dunmore where the woods have been the location for series 5 of Outlander, the wildly romantic Highland saga.
Just down the hill from Kinnaird is the Moulin Brewery at the Moulin Inn. Why not take a tour of the micro-plant and then enjoy a sample with the locals next door.
Jewellery out of heather? Believe it or not – yes! Find out how it is made with a guided tour. An unusual and unique gift from Scotland. Located centrally in the town, behind the tourist information centre.
There are two distilleries close to Kinnaird. Edradour Distillery, the smallest legal distillery in Scotland is just over mile from here. You can leave your car behind and take a stroll along for a wee dram and a distillery tour.
Pitlochry's second distillery produces the more well known Bell’s Whisky and is located on the south side of Pitlochry.
You can drive there or walk down through the Black Spout wood.
Located just across the river Tummel from the centre of Pitlochry the ‘Theatre in the Hills’ sits overlooking the river Tummel and faces the imposing mountainside of Ben-Y-Vrackie. It is famed for its imaginative sets and varied productions. If you visit Pitlochry for a week in the summer you can see 6 different plays during your stay.
The theatre hosts other events including art exhibitions, creative writing courses and concerts for varied musical tastes.
Close by is the Plant Explorers garden. This is lovely place to walk round with interesting native species, information on the local history of gardening and some peaceful spaces to sit and relax.
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!
