A Packed Itinerary of Places to Visit
The area offers a host of attractions, walking and climbing of course, skiing at Glenshee, riding, cycling, fishing (the Tay is one of the great salmon rivers), sailing and even canoeing, to name but a few.
An interesting stop just 4 miles north of Pitlochry, is the Pass of Killiecrankie where a soldier escaped his enemies at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 by jumping over an 18-foot gorge (the Soldier's Leap). The visitor centre provides information on the Jacobite Rebellion and local flora and fauna, and there are attractive walks through the woods.
Blair Atholl is a good centre for walks and cycle routes, but its most popular attraction is the 13th century Blair Castle, nestled deep in the Grampian foothills. The seat of the Duke of Atholl, part of it is open to the public, including a splendid ballroom. A few miles north is the House of Bruar, a modern complex containing a large restaurant and many shops selling Scottish produce and country clothing.
With glorious scenery and much of historic interest, it also has the benefit of an excellent infrastructure of roads and facilities, making it easy to take in a great deal in a short stay, whilst also being within an hour's drive of both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
