The Pass of Killiecrankie is an impressive wooded gorge, which is a popular beauty spot, well known for the Jacobite battle which took place nearby.
This wooded gorge is a popular location for walkers and naturalists. There are a number of easily accessible trails by the River Garry through fine oak and deciduous woodland, rich in wildlife. Autumn colours are particularly spectacular, with the view along the pass from the Garry bridge being one of the most photographed in Perthshire. The gorge is a Site of Special Interest and lies within the Tummel National Scenic Area.
The Killiecrankie Visitor Centre (NTS) is located above the gorge and features information on the outstanding beauty of the area and the bloody Jacobite battle fought here in 1689. The centre is open from Easter to October and offers a programme of guided walks throughout the season. Remote camera links at the centre enable sight of nestling woodland birds at close range. The gorge and walking trails are accessible all year.
