ROSEMOUNT HOTEL PITLOCHRY
Set during prohibition, the stage show is based upon a book written by a contemporary reporter, Maurine Dallas Watkins and relates to criminal characters contained within her reporting. Pitlochry Theatre engages with this raunchy, punchy satire on corruption and the celebrity criminal of the era, helped by a talented cast of 16 and a sizeable live band
Described , by Samuel French, as a cup of exquisite comic delight, this story is set in the Napoleonic era and tells of the lessons to be learned from the loss of youth and changing fortune. in one of the most endearing and enduring comedies

Pre Theatre Dining at Rosemount Pitlochry
The menu at Rosemount consists of hearty, wholesome and unpretentious food which is freshly prepared and cooked to order. We don't serve vast quantities of meals and so each plate is given time, care and attention and is delivered promptly.
THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE
Nostalgia at its best! Team up a combination of 90s setting and the fascination of the principle characters with the classic records of Hollywood and Vegas idols like Judy Garland, Shirley Bassey and Marilyn Monroe and you have an enchanting trip down memory lane, in the company of big hair, big suits and big voice
The play centres on the figure of Henry Carr, an elderly man who reminisces about Zürich in 1917 during the First World War, and his interactions with James Joyce when he was writing Ulysses, Tristan Tzara during the rise of Dada, and Lenin leading up to the Russian Revolution. As he reminisces, Carr's memory becomes prone to distraction, and instead of predictable historical biography these characters are interpreted through the maze of his mind.

PITLOCHRY THEATRE BREAKS
THE LAST WITCH
A rich, poetic tale full of ambiguity and suspense, The Last Witch reimagines the true story of the alleged Witch of Dornoch: did Janet Horne actually practise witchcraft? Or was she was a charismatic, free-thinking woman, ahead of her time?

There are a vast number of exciting things to do whilst on holiday in Pitlochry. We recommend:-
Black Spout Wood Walk –
A saunter through light woodland to a delightful waterfall. For a longer stretch, press on to Edradour Distillery and enjoy the gorgeous downhill amble back into town. The views are breathtaking. Refreshment at the Moulin Inn or Pitlochry Golf Club enroute. This walk leads from the door of Rosemount Hotel Pitlochry. It can be modified to circuits of varying length which take from around 40 minutes to several hours to enjoy.
Ben Vrackie, Beallach-na-Searmoin, Ben y Ghlo and Craigower Hill.
(Fabulous scenic hillwalks with a range of degrees of challenge)
Ben Vrackie is a well known and much-admired hill which forms the ever-changing and scenic northerly landscape to the bustling resort town of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire. Because “the Ben” sits to the north of the town, the sun lights its rugged southerly aspect, emphasising the contrast between greens, purples and greys in an ever-moving and dramatic way. All this against an equally dynamic and stunningly contrasting sky.
Ben Vrackie translates as `speckled mountain` and comes from a time when white quartz rocks were scattered across its slopes. On a good clear day the view from the summit of 2,757 ft (841 m) is tremendous with the Beinn a Ghlo range to the north and the sweep of Strathtay and Strathtummel to the west. In exceptional conditions it is even possible to see Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh.
The walk to the summit of this imposing backdrop to Pitlochry town (sometimes known as Ben y Vrackie) is approximately 3 hours there and back from Rosemount Hotel Pitlochry. The path is well-constructed for most of the route, passing beside Moulin Burn and then across heather moorland. A Lochan situated two thirds of the way up provides good safe swimming for dogs – an ideal cooler on a hot day. The final section is more demanding, but worth a little effort in return for the rewarding views. Red grouse and red deer live on the hillside and sometimes a flash of white can indicate the presence of the shy mountain hare.
Loch Dunmore –
An instantly-loveable, small Loch, just outside Pitlochry, surrounded by mixed woodland and teeming with wildlife, such as Red Squirrel, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers, Owls and some beautiful water birds. A wee holiday treat!
Killiecrankie, Queen’s View, Blair Atholl and Bruar
The Pass of Killiecrankie.
An impressive , tree-lined gorge which is simply breathtaking in Autumn, but beautiful all year around.
A must-visit place during holidays in the Pitlochry area. The panoramic view has been described as “spine-tingling”.
Allean Forest Walk.
Near to Queen’s View. A steady uphill walk, passing an abandoned crofting farmstead enroute. One of the buildings has been re-constituted to give a fascinating insight into the realities of living in this area in days gone by. Wonderful views over Loch Tummel towards Schiehallion on the horizon.
Blair Atholl, with Blair Castle,
visitor centre and country life museum, working watermill and Glen Tilt walks. Blair Castle offers many hours of historical education and interest. Pony trekking and wildlife safaris are bookable within its splendid grounds. Additionally, walkers and cyclists may find a whole network of trails leading from the castle gates. Cycle hire is available just opposite. There is plenty enough to spend a whole day exploring in this delightful hamlet. Just a few miles from Pitlochry.
House of Bruar and the Falls of Bruar.
A pleasing combination of top-end visitor facility with a delightful walk passing two waterfalls.
often described as the most beautiful Glen in Scotland. Please take a trip along this beautiful landscape during you Pitlochry holiday. You can drive onwards to Loch Tay and Kenmore, then on to Aberfeldy, the Spirit of Wood, Dewars Distillery and the Highland Chocolatier. A fabulous day out.
