Salmon Ladder: Pitlochry is famous for its hydro-electric dam and salmon ladder. The ladder was specially constructed to enable salmon to by-pass the dam and make their way upstream to Loch Faskally above. Approximately half a million visitors go to the dam and fish ladder every year, making it one of the top attractions in Scotland. The ladder is 310 metres long and consists of 34 chambers. It enables around 5,000 salmon to return to their spawning grounds each year - a journey of some 6,000 miles!

Thank you Pat for a lovely couple of days in your house. Your 'croeso' was hospitality at its best. Your treasure trove of books is something very special.

Say, "Yes" in the Autumn! Just my kind of place.

A FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 10 days with my wife and three kids aged 13, 9 and 6 years. The accommodation was clean and tidy while the large kitchen was ideal for a self catering holiday; it helped that clear instructions were left as to how to work all the appliances. The area is very quiet yet you are only a few minutes walk from the town centre which has great shops, cafes and restaurants. The kids loved the putting green and the walk to the Dam and Salmon Ladder. Pitlochry is a great base to explore Perthshire and beyond. We took the train to Carrbridge near Aviemore where we spent the day at Landmark which the kids absolutely loved. We will definitely be back as we have no complaints whatsoever.

The House was Clean, Tidy and very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5
The House is based in an ideal location. It's a short walk from the Centre of town and also close to other tourist landmarks outside of Pitlochry.
We received a welcome pack with some essentials, this allowed us to make Tea and Toast on arrival. We were also gifted a lovely Bottle of Wine that we drank in the Garden later in the day. This was a really nice touch and was much appreciated.
The House contained all that was needed to enjoy a great few days, the Wi Fi, TV and DAB Radio were all particularly welcome.
There was plenty of space to chill out and we did this repeatedly throughout our stay.
All in all, we had a great time and would recommend the property to anyone looking for a Home from Home for a few days.
Thanks to Pat for a great few days.

New Year in Pitlochry

  • 5 of 5
So delighted to spend the New Year holiday in this lovely, cosy and comfortable house. It was clean and beautiful festive touches had been put in place for us along with a bottle of cava for our arrival. We immediately felt at home.
Pat had provided everything we would need to ensure home comforts. Excellent espresso machine for the coffee fans and loads to do on the rainy days.
 Pitlochry was buzzing and the excellent Internet connection and area information kept us in touch with what was going on around and about.
We would certainly return to this perfect home in a great wee town.

It's a real home, not just a holiday house.

It's a real home, not just a holiday house.
  • 5 of 5
An owner who gives every guest a warm welcome, an exceptionally clean and comfortable house with just about every kitchen utensil and gadget you might ever need, warmth, masses of information about Pitlochry and the surrounding area, a queen size bed and wi-fi too - what's not to like?
This is an excellent house in a convenient location - we walked everywhere - over the river to the theatre, up the hill to the Moulin Inn (go early), down to the salmon ladder and along the main street.
I'm looking forward to a return visit, hopefully before Christmas!
