Perthshire Walking Breaks

Basically, there’s a powerful restorative effect linked to an active holiday in a beautiful location that cannot be underestimated. Perthshire walking breaks, at Rosemount Hotel Pitlochry, offer hundreds of possibilities to spend time in wonder at the beauty of nature, whilst exercising and filling our lungs with pristine, pure air.

Add to this a delightful place to stay, with wonderful views to enjoy over evening refreshment and from your room and the process of repair is well on its way. A warm and squishily cosy room with modern bathroom. . . Delicious meals with friendly service. . . A cosy chat, outdoors, warming the toes at an open fire pit, mulling over the delights of the day, sharing reflections and enjoying the blissful peace . . . . Perfection!

“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”

Once you walk the Perthshire Hills, you'll want to return again and again

Undoubtedly, Pitlochry’s most popular hillwalk: “The Ben” is considered an iconic feature of Pitlochry’s landscape. Towering over this picturesque town, it offers a stunning backdrop and protection from northerly weather systems

The views from the ascent of Ben Vrackie are quite stunning. Once at the summit, the views extend to the whole of Perthshire and to the Cairngorms. On a very clear day, Ben Nevis may be seen. This mountain, of some 2759ft, offers good, well-formed paths through woodland, across moorland and past a small lochan. The final few hundred meters are up a steep incline, but steps have been formed, both to protect the immediate environment and for ease of progress. There are two optional extensions of the basic “there and back” walk.

The basic trip to and from Rosemount Hotel, Pitlochry is about 5 miles. A very good walk description may be found here.

Excellent photographs from the summit at dawn maybe viewed at the walkhighlands website

Killiecrankie Walk

A popular walk that can be extended or curtailed to offer a medium or several long-distance versions. If extended to include the Beallach, route, takes the more energetic walker almost to the summit of Ben Vrackie. Otherwise, it offers an extremely pleasant hike along both shores of Loch Faskally

This circular walk offers many interesting features and passes along country roads, grassy verges, past river, loch and rapids and through woodland. There are many opportunities to curtail or extend the basic route and degree of challenge. Wildlife sightings are common and the scenery is varied and stunning.

A great  guide to this walk may be found at the excellent alltrails.com website under the name of  River Tummel Loop

We will not rest in our work to ensure that our visitors receive the best possible value for their money during their stay in Pitlochry at Rosemount Hotel!

Falls of Bruar

A visit to The Falls of Bruar can be combined with a few hours spent at the impeccable House of Bruar visitor centre. Some can take or leave its exceptional shopping experience. However, you’d have to travel far to exceed their excellent lunches!

We always recommend setting aside an entire day for exploring the peace of heaven that resides in the Killiecrankie/ Blair Atholl/ Bruar area. The Pass of Killicrankie is outstandingly beautiful, as are the Autumn colours across the entire Glen. It has been remarked that these may be viewed  best from the summit of Craig Fonvuick, However, Autumn views are quite exceptional from just about any point along the valley.

The circular walk to the two-section Falls of Bruar give the option to curtail the hike at the first falls, which are perfectly thrilling to behold. Despite the pull on calf muscles as the ascent steepens a little, the second set of falls is well within the ability of an average walker. Good shoes are always recommended for strolling in the countryside. 

Edradour Walk with Black Spout Wood

A truly lovely walk through unspoiled woodland, past a waterfall then ascending through pasture to the delightful hamlet of Edradour. Complete with distillery, this area offers stunning views over Pitlochry. The walk then meanders along the roadside through the pretty village of Moulin, offering an extension past Pitlochry Golf Course and the Cuilc pond, bak to the charming town of Pitlochry
