Visit Pitlochry & Blair Atholl
The Victorian resort town of Pitlochry is a short drive north west of Blairgowrie. There are a few bus services between the towns each day, which are well timed for a day visit.
Pitlochry is a bustling little town that is most famous for its Dam and Fish Ladder and Pitlochry Festival Theatre, "Scotland's Theatre in the Hills". In addition, there are two whisky distilleries with visitor centres and Explorers, the new Scottish Plant Hunters Garden, which tells the story of Scots who travelled the world to discover new species of plants.
To the north, the picturesque village of Blair Atholl nestles under mighty Blair Castle, the magnificent seat of the Dukes of Atholl and home to a treasury of works of art, as well as Europe's last private army, the Atholl Highlanders.
Just north of Blair Atholl you'll find House of Bruar, one of Scotland's most prestigious country stores.
Why not return to Pitlochry and take the Moulin Road, past the historic village of Moulin, over the heather clad Moulin Moor into Strathardle, join the A93 at Bridge of Cally and then just a short drive down the A93 back to Blairgowrie.
