Pitlochry is set beneath its own mountain Ben-Y-Vrackie, with the main Glasgow and Edinburgh to Inverness railway passing through the town. The main trunk road, the A9, that connects the busy central belt of Scotland to the Highlands also passes by the town. The excellent road and rail network is an important reason for the town's success as a tourist town. 

Many of the town's buildings are in the Victorian Scottish Baronial architecture style giving a very special character, which is much photographed by visitors. The Scottish Baronial architecture has its origins in the sixteenth century.  Pioneered by figures including Sir Walter Scott in the nineteenth century, it frequently features towers adorned by small turrets.
