Pitlochry has colourful events throughout the year - Highland Games Days, Etape Caledonia, The Enchanted Forest, New Years Day Street Party and the lively Cateran Fest.
Perthshire is the outdoor activity playground of Scotland. We have the UK's first static Bungee jump, white water sports for the energetic, superb walking and cycling routes for those looking for peace and quiet and Hunting, Shooting and Fishing for the traditionalists.
If you are staying with us for a short break or romantic weekend are probably expecting to have a dip in the hot tub and then to cosy in front of your log burning stove. However, here are lots of marked walks in the area from low level loch-side ambles to more strenuous mountain climbing to tear you away from your lodge.
Pitlochry also has lots of entertainment and action to tempt you with many pubs providing live entertainment several times per week.
March and April see an eclectic mixture of touring before the main season begins in May, running until October. In recent year there has been a late special running in November followed by either a musical or pantomime in December.
May brings the Atholl Highlanders Parade and Highalnd Games at Blair Atholl (just 7 miles from Kinnaird).
The Second Saturday in September is always Pitlochry Highland Games - a fanatastic event enjoyed by locals and visitors.
September brings The Horse Trials to Blair Castle. Not just for equine enthusastics, it has a fantastic country fair feel about the week long event.
Glenshee, the most extensive ski area in Scotland with 36 runs and 22 lifts, is a 40 minute drive from Kinnaird and opens in December each year. In recent years the snow has been very good and hope to stay open until mid April each year.
"Wonderful relaxing few days" I booked a cabin at Kinnaird Woodland lodges for 3 days over the 2015 Christmas period, and it was everything that I had hoped for. The cabin itself was really clean and cosy. Whilst initially being smaller than I'd imagined, it was actually perfect for myself and my wife. We were greeted with a wonderfully warm welcome by Yvonne who showed us around the place and explained how to use the key features (hot tub and log fire) and then largely left us to it. The location of the cabins gives a really nice view over Pitlochry and the surrounding hills, and the layout of the cabins means that you never really notice any other guests apart from walking to and from the car. I also booked my wife into the spa that is onsite for a back massage, and having this so close, and then being able to jump straight into the hot tub certainly added to the relaxing feel.

My husband and I stayed in the premium love cabin on the 18th-20th March. On arrival at the cabin we had a warm welcome by the housekeeper who showed us how to work the hot tub etc and was happy to answer our questions about the local area. We had processco chilling on ice and some delicious chocolates waiting for us, naturally we quickly got our swimwear on and enjoyed a glass in the hot tub while we stargazed. The log burner was wonderful and the super king sized bed very warm and comfortable. The lodge was a lovely size, cozy without being too small, nice sized living area, underfloor heating in the bath room was a lovely touch and the shower had good pressure, and with the complimentary shampoo etc everything had been thought of. Great location for going and taking in some of the beautiful local views, and a short drive or taxi ride into town for dinner. We absolutely loved our weekend here and can't wait to go back again for our first wedding anniversary! Heather W
