Walking and Outdoors
Enjoy the most beautiful scenery in Scotland
Pitlochry is a walker's paradise. With its excellent range of well-marked routes, from gentle strolls to challenging hikes. All the Pitlochry walks start and finish in the town centre and they are clearly marked with colour-coded sign posts. Covering an area of approximately 20 square miles, there are nearly 41 miles of tracks and paths taking you along rivers, crossing burns and roaming loch-side, through woodland and up hills, from where you can see some spectacular views.
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 and further north is the Drumochter Pass. Heading west is Loch Rannoch, presided over by mighty Schiehallion, one of the most popular Munros; this region also gives access to the wilds of Rannoch Moor.
The glens here are bountiful, the mountains beckoning and the rivers magnificent.
