In the county of Perth and Kinross, along the River Tummel, lies the Scottish burgh of Pitlochry. Holiday cottages in Pitlochry have been extremely popular amongst walkers, hikers and all-round sightseers. Known as an area most popular for hillwalking, many incredible views can be had atop one of the many peaks in the surrounding areas. Pitlochry's centre is also something to be marvelled at as its style still remains largely Victorian with towering, stone building lining the streets. Other nearby sites of historical interest include that of Blair Castle, a castle said to date back to the 13th century, located in the close by town of Blair Atholl. Visitors are allowed to roam the castle's interior where visitors can seen a display of art, weapons and awards and visitors may also roam the castle grounds where you will find the gardens.
There are many unique areas around our Pitlochry holiday cottages which just add to the beauty of this wonderful town, such as Loch Tay, a long and narrow freshwater loch. Along the north shore of Loch Tay, visitors will find Ben Lawers, the British Isle's 10th tallest mountain. Another mountain which is a popular hiking spot is the Schiehallion, a mountain at an elevation of over one thousand feet with gradients not too demanding, making this ideal for walkers of all abilities. Schiehallion also offers great views over the surrounding villages and towns, such as the River Tummel leading up to Pitlochry. You can find Schiehallion 10 miles north of Aberfeldy.
