Self Catering in Pitlochry

Head to Highland Perthshire for hi-octane activities in the adventure capital of Scotland. 

Pitlochry is perfectly positioned for a holiday in the beating heart of Scotland. Just an hour-and-a-half’s drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, you’re into the majesty of Highland Perthshire, all wild glens, rushing torrents, rolling countryside and woods that turn many beautiful shades of red and gold in autumn. This glorious landscape is a grand setting for all manner of hi-octane activities, like mountain biking, canyoning and whitewater rafting. And even tubing and river bugging! It’s no surprise that Perthshire is known as the adventure capital of Scotland. Those rivers and mountains make Pitlochry well placed for the more traditional pursuits of salmon fishing and hill-walking. The Victorian resort town is also great for low-octane activities such as shopping for Scottish souvenirs and knitwear. This is best rewarded with a high tea, followed by an evening of high culture at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre. 

If you’d like to stay in Pitlochry or nearby, have a browse at our Perthshire holiday houses. For example, stay in an Edwardian cottage five minutes from the centre, with marvellous views over the Tummel Valley, or an idyllic rural cottage where red squirrels come for breakfast.
