The town...

I spent about 2 1/2 months working in Pitlochry at the beginning of 1999, at Fishers Hotel. This is a genuine tourist town if ever i have seen one! Nestled in the highlands between Perth & Inverness, it has the perfect location.

To do in Pitlochry...

Although the town is not all that big, there are quite a few attractions in the area, starting with my favourite: Hiking. At least 7 marked routes are offered, ranging from 1/2 an hour long, to one that took me a whole day. Other attractions include:

Edradour distillery
Moulin brewery
Trout Ladder
Shopping
Camping
Restaurants

Check out my travel tips to find out more!

I would love to return to Pitlochry one day, but i dont think i could stay for much longer than a couple of days...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy access to everywhere
  • Cons:VERY touristy
  • In a nutshell:A must see, just not for longer than a few days...

    ate must have led me to your pages today. Two of my great aunts worked at Fisher's hotel up until the early 1970s, and I wanted a photo for my family history records- so have downloaded yours, thanks

    Hy There :-) U r absolutely correct. Perthshire as a whole is just amazing, I love it up there, and oh! the Highland cow, the woman I rent the cottages from has them on her farm. Amazing big creatures. Hope u can return some day. Gr8 pages. Hazel
