Pitlochry and Blair Atholl: North Perthshire

Pitlochry and Blair Atholl: North Perthshire

Pitlochry is one of the most popular resorts in the Highlands and has been for over 150 years, a handsome stone-built town known for its theatre and fish-ladder. It is the gateway to an area of fine Perthshire Highland scenery; the glens here are fertile, the mountains beckoning and the rivers magnificient.

To the north is Blair Atholl at the foot of Glen Tilt, one of the most beautiful glens in all Scotland and accessible only on foot. Blair Atholl is the northern end of Perthshire; further north is the bleak Drumochter Pass. Heading west is Loch Rannoch, presided over by mighty Schiehallion, one of the most popular Munros; this region also acts as a gateway to the wilds of Rannoch Moor.
