Killiecrankie, Pitlochry

(340+ reviews on the web)
National Park
Take a stroll through the woods of Killiecrankie, through which the River Garry flows. Keep an eye out for red squirrels, nesting birds, and plenty of other wildlife. In 1689 the leafy gorge was the site of a bloody battle, one of the decisive actions of the Jacobite risings. A visitor center recounts the story of the battle through hands-on displays and models, and also tells the natural history of the valley. Look for the site where one footsoldier made a narrow escape from pursuers by jumping across the river. Adventure companies offer river rafting and a "Highland fling" bungee jump. Make Killiecrankie a centerpiece of your Pitlochry vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Pitlochry trip itinerary planner.

  • A beautiful place at the Solder's Leap. A Lot of nature trails to walk. A small visitor center with some displays and will sell some water and snacks
  • Good place to stop for a coffee and a walk when driving down the A9. Little museum, coffee hut and a few paths leading from that area.
  • Cups of tea are loaded 3mm from the brim to reduce milk usage ... I bet eventually when they phone in a new milk carton order, its Oh sorry can you phone me back a customer just came in, just so the milkman will foot the telephone call bill. Stop being so stingy and make room for us to get your milk.
