A lovely walk around Pitlochry, visiting a spectacular waterfall, a ruined castle, an old coaching inn and brewery and a bouncy bridge! This walk offers super views of Pitlochry.
Starting at the Pitlochry information centre, we walk up through the woods below the Atholl Palace Hotel to the spectacular Black Spout, a 60m waterfall. We then follow a signposted path which goes past the famous Edradour Distillery – considered to be the smallest in Scotland. After following paths through woods and fields, we come to the ruined Caisteal Dubh (the “Black Castle”) which has an interesting story to tell. After visiting Moulin, with its old coaching inn and brewery, we walk up to the scenic viewpoint of Craigower. If we’re lucky, we’ll be able to see as far as Glencoe!
We then descend past the golf course and The Cuilc to the banks of Loch Faskally. After crossing the dam we walk down beside the famous fish ladder and across a bouncy bridge! The path soon brings us back into the centre of Pitlochry. The walk follows mainly good paths and tracks, but with a field to cross to reach the Caisteal Dubh.
The walk starts and finishes at the Pitlochry iCentre (the tourist information centre) on Atholl Road in the centre of Pitlochry. The walk is 14km with a total ascent of 450m and will take up to 6 hours. The walk will start at 10am and we should finish by 4pm.
You will need to bring with you a pair of good trekking shoes or boots, waterproofs, a small rucksack, some warm spare clothing, hand sanitiser, a face mask and something to eat and drink. Children over the age of 12 are welcome on this walk but they must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Sorry, but no dogs.
