Pitlochry has been a popular tourist destination for more than 150 years, drawing visitors to the picture-perfect scenery and the endless possibilities for outdoor activities. Fisher’s Hotel provides an ideal base for visiting the town, offering an excellent location and a comfortable standard of accommodation – making it a great hotel for walking breaks, fishing holidays and long weekends in the Highlands.
Like much of the town, the hotel dates back to the Victorian era. As such, it offers a traditional charm and style, from the dark wood reception area to the cosy fireplace in the guest lounge. It boasts a beautiful garden to the rear of the building, which is ideal spot to enjoy some summer sunshine (or even a game of croquet).
With a central location on the town’s main street, the hotel offers easy access to all of Pitlochry’s attractions. The Festival Theatre is justifiably renowned as one of the town’s most vibrant destinations, offering an excellent and varied programme of plays throughout the year – not to mention a popular café and restaurant. For those looking for a little Scottish spirit, the Blair Athol Distillery is a short walk from the hotel, while the Edradour Distillery (which is the country’s smallest), is a quick drive from the town centre.
The town is a popular destination for walking holidays, with a wide network of well-marked path criss-crossing the landscape, while the Explorers’ Garden near the theatre provides 6 acres of sculpted woodland grounds to explore. For serious hill climbing, the town is dominated by Ben Vrackie, while Schiehallion is also within easy reach. As the hotel’s name suggests, it’s also the perfect base for fishing breaks, with River Tummel and River Garry offering some excellent trout and salmon beats.
After a day’s sightseeing, walking or fishing, the hotel’s traditional restaurant, cosy snug bar and pub-style bar offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy the very best of local food and drink – and a comfortable setting for relaxing Scottish breaks.
