Queen's View, Loch Tummel

Destinations and maps


Pitlochry is an excellent base for exploring Perthshire - Queen Victoria certainly thought so. She's said to have been one of the earliest holidaymakers to have discovered the beauty of this hillside town.

Take it all in

Breathe in fresh air and stand back to admire the view. Pitlochry is nestled amongst the stunning scenery of Highland Perthshire, where the refreshing greenery of the forests in spring transforms into a blaze of golds and reds come autumn.


Outdoor attractions are high on the list in this, Perthshire's natural playground. Here traditional pastimes such as fishing, golf and walking stand side by side with more adrenaline-filled activities, such as bungee jumping and mountain biking.

And relax

Pitlochry is a traditional resort town, so you can take it easy here too. Be pampered at a spa hotel, eat out in restaurants and cafés, browse shops for gifts and local crafts and enjoy  a local tipple in a bar or pub before a night at the theatre.
