So we fancied a wee overnight stay somewhere and decided on Pitlochry. Now i’m ashamed to admit but this is the furthest north I’ll have been. But i’m pretty sure this’ll change.
We left early in the morning and drove up. Pitlochry is situated about 75 miles from Edinburgh, so it took us just over an hour and a half to get there. If you don’t have access to a car, then there’s a train station in Pitlochry. Travelling by train takes just under 2 hours and costs £32.50.
Thankfully the weather was dry and we were able to go for a wander around town and head over the dam and salmon ladder.
The views up here are fantastic. It’s a great wee town for just wandering, having a drink and getting some good food.
We were staying in the Strathgarry B&B. The room was fantastic. There was a huge bed which was super comfy too. We choose to eat in the restaurant as they were offering an early bird menu. We can safely say this was a fantastic idea. We both decided on the Aberdeen Angus steak for mains and it was delicious.
We had a drink in Mckays which is just a bit along the street. It had a lovely cosy feel with an log burner in the middle. Perfect if it was a cold winters night and there was a bit of snow.
After all the food and a few drinks we were shattered. It seems there’s not much happening after 9.30pm but this suited us just fine. All that walking around and fresh air had made us both sleepy. Breakfast was included in our stay and again it was good. There was a range of cereals and porridge, fruit salad and of course a full cooked breakfast.
My first visit to Pitlochry was great. The fact there was limited phone signal made it all the better and we came home feeling fully relaxed.
Can’t wait to visit again 🙂
