Pitlochry is a great starting off point for exploring northern Perthshire, and has one of Scotland’s best pubs in the hills behind the town. One of Pitlochry’s attractions is its riverside. The Tummel is dammed here, and you can watch salmon swimming up a fish ladder to the loch above. Pitlochry has a couple of distilleries, but the nicer one is Edradour, Scotland’s smallest distillery and located 2.5 miles east of town along the Moulin road. The walk there is pleasant round trip. There are dozens of hotels and guesthouses in Pitlochry, but the most popular by far is Moulin Hotel, a little inn with romantic low ceilings, great food, and period charm.
