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.
