What to do in Pitlochry

Whether you are here on a week long break or a short weekend trip, activities are a big part of your experience when you visit a new place. It’s about making those memories of that time you went bungee jumping with your friends, or watched that moving theatre performance with your family. It’s what makes a trip or a holiday so special.

If you are here with a group of friends, looking for something exhilarating and exciting, take a wild adventure with Highland Fling and bungee jump off the purpose built platform bridge at Killiecrankie, or hike to the top of Ben Vrackie for breathtaking views. If you are an outdoor enthusiast who seeks adventure, there are endless possibilities for an outdoor activity, hire mountain bikes from Escape Route and race around the biking trails that link from Pitlochry or Hop on the Munro Hopper with Elizabeth Yule to take on one of Perthshire’s Munros.
