A lovely walk around Pitlochry, visiting a waterfall, distillery, 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 to 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 offers super views of Pitlochry, Ben Vrackie and the surrounding countryside.

The walk starts at 10am 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 follows mainly good paths and tracks, but with a field to cross to reach the Caisteal Dubh. The walk should finish, back at the Pitlochry iCentre (the tourist information centre), by 4pm.

Information about booking arrangements and what to bring with you is set out on our website page for the walk. You will need to bring with you a pair of good walking boots, waterproofs, a small rucksack, some warm spare clothing, hand sanitiser, a face mask and something to eat and drink. People under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian. Sorry, but no dogs.
