THE CRUCIBLE

One of the most powerful pieces of 20th century theatre, the tale finds parallels in McCarthyism, portraying the effects of religious and political repression by governments and institutions and the use of fear as a means by which to influence and control society. Its resonance is not outdated, by any means.

BLONDE BOMBSHELLS OF 1943

Based on the BAFTA winning film starring Judi Dench. This spirited account of the fortunes of a glamorous war-time band includes stunning live vocal performances of hits by Glen Miller, The Andrews Sisters, George Formby, Fats Waller and more.

HERITAGE

First staged in 1998, Heritage is a poignant and poetic exploration of love, identity, tribalism and the need to belong. A story entwined with the turbulent history of Ireland and the search for identity and resolution within those who have left her shores

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.

Allean Forest Walk. Near to Queen’s View. A steady uphill walk, passing an abandoned crofting farmstead enroute. Interestingly, 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.

Loch Tummel Pitlochry

The Best of Perthshire for Tour Groups visiting Scotland

Glen Lyon 

Glen Lyon is often described as the most beautiful Glen in Scotland. Please take a trip along this beautiful landscape during you Pitlochry holiday. We recommend you drive onwards to Loch Tay and Kenmore, then on to Aberfeldy, the Spirit of Wood, Dewars Distillery and the Highland Chocolatier. This makes for a truly fabulous day out.

Kenmore and Loch Tay

Loch Tay

 

  • Aberfeldy and Strathtay A quaint Highland town with independent shops, arty cafes and an art-house style cinema

Hermitage Dunkeld

Newtonmore and Kingussie

It’s best to set aside a day for visiting Newtonmore and Kingussie in order to have enough time to experince their delights. Don’t miss the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. We recommend visitng these morning and afternoon to be free by 4pm for Working Sheepdogs at Kncraig, followed by tea at Loch Insch Watersports Centre, hopefully catching a spectacular sunset over the head of Loch Insch. Both Working Sheepdogs and Loch Insch Sports Centre  are located  in Kincraig.
