The Pitlochry Accommodation Guide
Pitlochry accommodation guide, is broken down in to sections on hotels, Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts, B&Bs, Cottages and Caravan Parks. Most importantly each section goes in to detail on what the area offers.
Pitlochry became known as a tourist destination back in the time of Queen Victoria and the arrival of the railway in 1863. So this lead to the development of accommodation to meet this growing new market.
So in 1874 a new hotel was lavishly designed as a Scotch Baronial Hydropathic establishment complete with luxurious accommodation, Turkish baths and treatment rooms. Today it is has its own record you can visit its 1874 luxury hotel museum.
A word of warning
A word of warning, the Pitlochry accommodation sells out during the main tourist season. Besides this remember to check when the large events are being held in the area. Such as Etape Caledonia closed road cycle event in May. The Blair Castle Horse Trials at the end of August. The Pitlochry Highland Games weekend in September. The Enchanted Forest during the whole month of October. So we highly recommend forward planning at these peak times.
