5 EASY WALKS IN PITLOCHRY
Fishers Hotel is right in the Heart of Pitlochry so it's very easy to walk to all that this Highland Town has to offer
Atholl Road Shopping
5 minutes to 3 hours
Simply step outside the New Fisher's Hotel Pitlochry and you'll find yourself in the centre of Atholl Road, Pitlochry's main shopping street. For world class Scottish cashmere, tartans and tweeds turn left and walk up to MacNaughtons and Amour or find great quality at the knitwear shops. Turn right to reach Heathergems and watch the unique jewellery being made from heather.
Follow this historical trail and learn about Pitlochry's past as you walk up to the Moulin Kirk family history centre and then head over to the Atholl Palace Museum.
Craigower and Pitlochry Golf course
20 minutes to 3 hours
Head steeply up hill to the golf course. Within a few minutes walk you'll start to see great views over Pitlochry which often look better under the dramatic skies of autumn and winter than the pure blue of summer. You can end your walk after 20 minutes at the Culic pond, where the swans and moor hens will greet you, or continue over the Golf course to the top of Craigower Hill to enjoy the views over to the West Coast on a clear day.
Loch Faskally Walk
From the New Fisher's Hotel station entrance turn right and follow the winding road under the railway line, past the Children's amusement Centre, down to Loch Faskally. The walk around the Loch will take you past the boating station, where you can hire boats and fishing equipment. This walk can be extended to Loch Dunmore and joins the network of paths leading to the Bungee Jump Bridge and Killiecrankie visitor centre.
Dam and Fisher Ladder
Step outside the New Fisher's Hotel station entrance and head through the white gate posts to the station. Climb over the station bridge (there are alternatives for those with buggies, bikes and wheelchairs) and walk towards the signal box on the northbound platform. From the signal box you will see the path down to the Dam and Fish ladder.
Cross the dam and continue past the Festival Theatre where you may choose to visit the Explorer's Garden. Cross back over the river at the suspension bridge and follow the path to the recreation ground. You can choose to walk back to Fishers past the shops and restaurants or along the secluded station path.
