The Pass of Killiecrankie
Scene of an epic battle during the Jacobite Rebellions, with its famous Soldier's Leap and National Trust Visitor's Centre is a few minutes walk to the north, while a short walk to the south takes you along the shore of Loch Faskally to The Visitor Centre at Pitlochry Dam, which has video films and interactive displays showing how electricity is generated from the fast flowing river of the highlands. You may also see salmon as they by-pass the dam from the underwater viewing chamber in the fish ladder, or as they leap from the fast flowing waters of the River Tummel.
Blair Athol Distillery in Pitlochry and the nearby Edradour Distillery, both welcome visitors to their guided tours while Pitlochry Festival Theatre enjoys a well deserved reputation for the quality of its productions.
A short drive across the Garry Bridge, takes you along Strathtummel to the spectacular viewpoint and the Forestry Commission Visitor Centre at Queen's View, and then on to Loch Rannoch, overlooked by the distinctive conical peak of Schiehallion.
To the south, Dunkeld, with its famous 14th Century Cathedral, National Trust Visitor Centre beautifully restored houses and Museum of the Scottish Horse Regiment is well worth a visit.
From Dunkeld, take a short walk across Telford's famous bridge over the River Tay and you are in Birnam, where the Beatrix Potter Garden is an attraction for young and old alike. Birnam Hill is famous for its association with Shakespeare's Macbeth and the nearby Hermitage has a number of woodland and riverside walks and a famous folly which overlooks waterfalls on the River Braan.
