Hogmanay New Year
Stay At Fisher's Hotel
The Pitlochry Scottish Hogmanay New Year is no sedate affair and welcomes in the New Year in style. Pitlochry’s main street, Atholl Road is closed for the event and attracts visitors from around Scotland who travel for miles to come to attend as well as locals and tourists. With music and dancing in the street from 1pm, what better way to start the year. Thousands attend each new year, many travelling from over seas and all over the UK, it is very popular event, that is organised by a very small band of dedicated volunteers.
