    Bargain Weekend Breaks in Pitlochry – Stay a Little Longer

    Bargain Weekend Break in Pitlochry

    “Tuesday Means We’re a Day Closer to Spending the Weekend Dreading Monday!” . . . Anon

    It’s quite possible that an important decision needs being made: We can spend yet another weekend trying to actively unload what led up to it and preparing for yet another Monday, or there might be an alternative choice – Forget Monday until it happens and file the days that happened beforehand as “things that will probably sort themselves out”. If they won’t, then a clear head is the best tool to remedy that . . . . So . . . what’s left after all of this??? Why . . . it’s the weekend, and a perfect solution as to what’s to be done with it might well be a bargain weekend getaway break in Pitlochry Scotland.

    Things to See and Do around Pitlochry at the Weekend

    Whilst Staying in Pitlochry

    Apart from its own stunning location , Pitlochry offers a perfect base for trips to the greater part of central Scotland, including, Inverness, the Cairngorm National Park, the Highland Wildlife Park, Balmoral, Grantown on Spey, Crieff and the Sma’ Glen, Edinburgh. There are the three Lochs – Tummel, Tay and Rannoch, even a train trip from Rannoch Station to Mallaig and back, via the Harry Potter viaduct. Nominated as one of the top ten rail trips in the world, this might be a novel highlight to your group’s visit to the area.

    A little further afield, but ideal for one large day trip out are places such as Glencoe, Loch Ness, Fort Augustus and Fort William.

    Must-See Places In and Around Pitlochry

    Queens View. A must-visit place during Scotland holidays in the Pitlochry area. Located just 6 miles from Pitlochry. The panoramic view has been described as “spine-tingling” and is probably one of the most famous vistas in Scotland.

Wonderful views over Loch Tummel towards Schiehallion on the horizon.
