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.

|12-Apr-2021||Mary Bank Cottage FL8 (overall)||We have stayed in a few cottages in Peebles and this is our favourite. It's very clean, spacious with tasteful modern decoration (no lace here). Great location - a few minutes from the village of Peebles and there are endless beautiful walks from your doorstep. Dan the owner was super helpful and easy to communicate with.|
|30-Jan-2021||Glen Affric View FD1 (overall)||Good website, which is easy to navigate. Phone contact was also easy and service very professional.|
|23-Jan-2021||West Carsaig Cottage AU7 (overall)||Carsaig is isolated, lovely, and the cottage was clean and comfortable. I recommend it: we certainly had fun as a couple with a (very excited) 3 year old! Mull gorgeous. Drive over to Carsaig fine as long as you're careful. Bring food, wellie boots/walking shoes and be prepared for changing weather. But we had sun almost the whole week - and felt lucky for it.|

|15-Jan-2021||Kates Cottage BJ2 (overall)||A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Hosts most helpful as we had tochange dates due to last minute change in Covid restrictions. Downside was poor internet connction . Couldnt get radio or T.V despite satellite dish. There is a dishwasher,which is great ,but number of plates and cutlery needs to be increased to reflect this.|
