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.

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?

Another Broadway classic at Pitlochry Festival Theatre. Based on Philip Barry’s play The Philadelphia Story, this production features a sizeable cast and a Swing Band. Memorable songs include “Who wants to be a Millionaire”.
By J.M Barrie
A spine-chilling supernatural drama of youth, love and loss, written in the aftermath of the Great War, much admired by a young Alfred Hitchcock. The tale is the story of a young woman who, after having mysteriously disappeared and re-emerged in her youth, is subject to strange experiences in her younger married life.
“Deft, thoughtful and heartfelt . . . a real heart-lurching chiller.” The Scotsman
By Alan Bennett
Hilarious, yet moving play about some of the conflicts between honouring heritage and protecting the need for a true home.
“Provocative fun . . . entertaining, funny and touching” The Daily Telegraph
Absurd Person Singular
By Alan Ayckbourn
I can sense this will be a delight for our gusts taking Pitlochry Festival Theatre Breaks, this year . . . A wicked and observant comic masterpiece about social-climbing and reversing fortunes.
“Ayckbourn at the top of his game . . . it feels almost indecent to laugh but somehow you just can’t stop yourself” The Telegraph
The Ruling Class
By Peter Barnes
This play from the 50’s has been described as a theatrical tour de force, combining feverish energy, ferocious humour, razor-sharp satire and genuine horror. Additionally, rather unorthodox treatment of our eccentric hero, who is ill at ease with his place in elite circles, releases something dark and deadly.
“Barnes’s play has an intoxicating energy . . . chillingly relevant” The Guardian
By David Greig
A contemporary work by Scotland’s greatest living playwright. This is a fierce yet compassionate drama about shifting borders, changing identities and globalisation.
“A memorable storm of political drama, comment and warning, not to be ignored.” The Scotsman
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.
Kenmore and Loch Tay
