The Tayside/Perthshire region
Perthshire lies in the heart of Scotland. Its total area extends to some 2,000 square miles and, geographically, it splits into two distinct landforms: Highland and Lowland, the dividing line being some 15 miles south of Pitlochry at Dunkeld. The countryside surrounding Pitlochry has been described as "Scotland in miniature" with an abundance of mountains, lochs, forests and glens to explore. With each season the landscape changes in breathtaking ways creating a new setting for smaller towns such as Aberfeldy, Blair Atholl and the numerous picture-book villages, lochs and viewpoints. There are many "Munros" to climb, castles to visit and miles of paths for more leisurely walks along river banks and valley floors.
There are nearby National Scenic Areas, the famous "House of Bruar" shopping experience and even The Cairngorm National Park which is entered at Blair Atholl only 7 miles from Pitlochry along the A9.
Braemar and Balmoral, the Queen's holiday residence, are also within comfortable reach for an interesting and beautiful day excursion.
The county capital,Perth, is only a 35 minute drive from the flat and has its own Concert Hall, Theatre, Leisure Pool and all of the attractions you would expect in a city with a population of over 40,000. It was once the capital of Scotland and is often referred to as "The Fair City".
Pitlochry lies in the centre of Highland Perthshire and is an ideal base for exploring the region. The town has an attractive, and distinctive, Victorian character because much of it was built in that era following one of Queen Victoria's Highland Tours in 1842. It's popularity as a spa/holiday town was given a further boost following the arrival of the railway in 1863. It currently has a population of 2,500 people with a thriving range of shops, restaurants, entertainment and visitor attractions. Among the latter the Festival Theatre is of National importance attracting over 60,000 visitors each year and can be reached by an attractive pedestrian path in no more than 10 minutes from the front door of the property. It is therefore ideal for theatre breaks and short stays can be tailored to suit. The Enchanted Forest sound and light show (Autumn/Winter) attracts some 20,000 visitors and is within walking distance of the town centre. The appeal of the area is enhanced with events such as the traditional "Highland Games" which are held in many of Perthshire's towns between May and September each year.
The town has two whisky distilleries, whose visitor centres are popular attractions .Edradour, which is the smallest distillery in Scotland , and Blair Atholl Distillery, which dates back to 1798. Fishing, sailing, golf, mountain biking and trekking can all be easily reached from the flat. Even Bungee Jumping, which is one of the newest local attractions, is only a short drive away.
The Pitlochry golf course is very near by and has some stunning views........ well worth a visit.

"Great location and everything you need"
Great location for Pitlochry itself - just a 10 mins walk into town over the suspension bridge - and also for touring Perthshire area. Just off the A9 but enough away not to hear the traffic. Also g… More

"Will definitely return soon"
We chose the first week in June which gives the benefit of daylight from long before anyone would think of rising until 11pm – and that's still almost 3 weeks before “the longest day”. Like the rest of the country, Pitlochry did not enjoy the best of weather that week but we were not inhibited by it in any way because there was so much to do in the town and nearby. Our special favourite indoor destinations were House of Bruar, Blair Castle and Pitlochry Theatre which is just a beautiful 5 minute walk away. The theatre has a welcoming bar, restaurant and café where visitors can sit at any time of the day and look through a plate glass wall at the River Tummel against the backdrop of the town and hills beyond. Added to the breathtaking view was the thrill of seeing the migrating salmon leap out of the water. And if you can afford it, it is possible to see a different play there every night of the week.
The flat itself was extremely comfortable, well appointed and spacious enough for our family of three adults and two dogs. As the kitchen opens directly onto an enclosed and private small rear garden the dogs could safely sit out there and the appearance of wild birds and a family of ducks made it a joy to join them when the weather was fine. Both of the double beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom were clearly newly fitted, the latter having a spacious walk-in shower.
Despite the weather, we had a lovely, memorable stay and intend book another week later this year, perhaps when the trees are in their autumn colours. We can then visit more of the places of interest in Perthshire and beyond which we could not possibly take in during a single week

"You won't want to go home!"
Stayed in this modern well decorated and comfortable flat, with all mod cons and lovely garden full of beautiful birds. It was like home from home, everything you need is there! Its in a great location for touring Scotland, there is lots to see and do whatever the weather. The hermitage (close by) is well worth visiting and a drive to Braemar and Royal Deeside is a must. We had a fantastic stay and it was exceptional value. I would HIGHLY reccomend a stay here. Its relaxing, peacefull and a wonderful place to stay. We will definatly be returning soon!
