Attractions around Pitlochry
Castles with turrets and towers, distilleries, woodland gardens, outdoor activity centres, quirky independent shops, cafes and restaurants - we have it all in the area round Rosehill Guest House.
Scotland's smallest distillery, located approximately 2 miles from the town. Take a guided tour, sample a dram and enjoy the wide range of whiskies in the shop.
Right on the edge of Pitlochry, and only a few minutes' walk from Rosehill, the Bell's distillery is housed in attractive, creeper-covered buildings and also offers tours and a dram. If you are here at the right time of year, you might even catch Santa's sleigh and his team of reindeer!
For the past 700 years, Blair Castle has been the home of the Dukes of Atholl. This white fairy-tale castle with its battlements & turrets, newly restored Hercules Garden and Diana's Grove full of specimen trees makes for a fun-packd day out for all the family. The Duke even has his own private army, on parade each year at the Atholl Gathering.
Known locally as the Harrods of the North, treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at this Highland emporium. Country clothes and accessories for ladies, gents and children, kitchen and homeware, an art gallery, excellent food & deli shopping and a great restaurant all make for a satisfying visit.
Known affectionately as the 'theatre in the hills' Pitlochry Festival Theatre has a long and star-studded history of superb performances.
The main season running from May to October offers drama, comedy, ballet, thrillers and musicals. During the rest of the year, there are folk & jazz gigs, tribute bands, concerts and a programme of fascinating workshops. The Winter Words festival takes place in February and, all year round, great food is available in the restaurant.
The autumn classic this year is 'Our Man in Havanna' and, during the festive season, we see the return of the 2012 hit production 'White Christmas'.
In between, there is an ongoing programme of workshops, music and talks, with the annual Winter Words Festival taking place in February each year.
The restaurant, overlooking the River Tummel, serves excellent food throughout the year.
