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 Its resonance is not outdated, by any means.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.

Things to Do Around Pitlochry between Theatre Visits

things to do in Pitlochry

Having saved sufficient funds to purchase tickets from savings made with Rosemount Hotel Pitlochry’s offers for a discounted break, you may wish to research the local offering of places of interest. There are many possibilities. Here are just a few:-

There are a vast number of exciting things to do whilst on holiday in Pitlochry. We recommend:-

Pitlochry Walks

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.

Views of- and from Ben Vrackie, with thanks to Jenny Herdman and Anatoly Zelenin for shares of two of the photos.

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.

Killiecrankie and Blair Atholl

Queens View.

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.

B&B Accommodation Pitlochry and Glen Lyon tour

Glen Lyon

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

with Kenmore Marina, Mains of Taymouth Visitor Centre and Restaurant and Crannog Centre

Aberfeldy and Strathtay

A quaint Highland town with independent shops, arty cafes and an art-house style cinema. Although the town is only 20 minutes direct drive away, there are several beautiful, scenic routes that we recommend our guests to take with many points of interest, eateries and viewpoints enroute. All in all – a full day of feasting the eyes, the soul and the belly!

The Highland Chocolatier

Exquisite chocolate made in situ. Pop over the road to see the rapids

Hermitage Dunkeld

Dunkeld and the Hermitage Forest walk

The romance of a semi-ruined Cathedral right on the banks of the Tay and a picture-perfect wee Highland town. Great walks around and about

Newtonmore and Kingussie

with Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. Working Sheepdogs and Loch Insch Watersports Centre are located nearby in Kincraig.

Pitlochry Breaks in an area steeped in History

The historical richness of the area, from Roman times to the present, offers an enormous range of opportunities to experience life in bygone days. Then there are the quaint, wee towns, each with its own character. Temptingly, they entice passers by with the aroma of freshly ground coffee and the sight of sumptuous cakes in the windows of a variety of independent cafes. Art galleries give insight into the talent that abounds in an area that attracts creative people to live. Small, unique shops add further interest with ideas for gifts and mementos.

Take a Walk or Two to truly appreciate the beauty of the area

Pitlochry, itself, is surrounded by a network of paths and waymarked trails. These allow the visitor to experience the stunning settings of riverside, loch, woodland, hill and mountain-side. The Pitlochry Paths Network is described in an extremely useful publication which highlights just some of the walks available in the local area.
