We spent a relaxing week here. The cottage is lovely with every amenity you could wish for, & set in a secluded location which is very close to Pitlochry. We had terrible weather, but it didn't stop us going to the Festival Theatre nearly every...More

About the neighbourhood
Killiecrankie comprises just a few dwellings, a hotel and a small community hall. The area encompasses majestic scenery, farms, sporting estates, the celebrated Pass of Killiecrankie, a deep natural gorge, a famous Jacobite battle site and various sites of scientific interest. It also boasts a wonderful array of wildlife from the red squirrel and otters to pine marten and roe deer.

Highland Fling built Britain's first, permanent, purpose built bungee jump from a bridge (over the Garry) here. Killiecrankie is a superb base for visitors wanting to join the whisky trail round local distilleries. It hosts the excellent Enchanted Forest autumn sound-and-light show. And it marks the southern perimeter of the Cairngorms National Park.

Only ten minutes from here is Blair Castle, our ver...
Getting around
Secret Bothy is within a few miles of two mainline railway stations. Pitlochry station is just 3 miles south and Blair Atholl about the same distance in the opposite direction. These connections allow for direct rail travel up to Inverness (and beyond) or to London. In other words, rail travel from here is good.

However, once you are here there is a lot to explore. Your own wheels are essential. There is car hire available locally but it must be booked in advance. Two wheels are also an option - either your own or hired locally. There are several places to rent bikes.

There is a rural bus service but the service is limited.
