Drive from Perth to Pitlochry (Road Journey)
Head north through the magnificent Cairngorm Mountain range and Speyside to the charming Victorian town of Pitlochry.
The bustling town of Pitlochry is a gateway to the Highlands. It's a popular town with great scenery and the Edradour Distillery.
Just off the main A9 route north, the town is a busy stop-off point for people heading into the Highlands. It benefits from a lovely setting on the River Tummel, backed by Ben Vrackie, and is particularly beautiful during the changing colours of autumn.
Visit Pitlochry Power Station and Dam which has the unusual attraction of a salmon ladder, which helps the fish bypass the dam and get into Loch Faskally. Downstream is the nationally renowned Pitlochry Festival Theatre and why not pop into Edradour Distillery, for an intimate tour and a wee dram.
The main street has lots of souvenir shops and if you're looking to stop off for something to eat, there's a great choice of Hotels and restaurants in the town.
