Pitlochry is the largest town in Highland Perthshire and the tourist hub for this area of Scotland, it has a long established reputation as a tourist destination built up from the time of the railway arriving in 1863. It is largely a Victorian town, which developed into a tourist resort because of Queen Victoria visiting the area in 1842. It remains a popular tourist resort today and is well known and loved by hill walkers wanting to scale the likes of Ben Vrackie and Schiehallion.
The town's biggest attraction is the Pitlochry dam and fish ladder which has a new visitor centre for 2017; and probably one of the towns biggest draw cards is the Pitlochry Festival Theatre often called 'The Theatre in the Hills' - best known for its rolling repertoire of 6 or 7 summer plays and for the many other performances throughout the year. Pitlochry also has two whisky distilleries, Edradour and Bells, whose visitor centres are popular attractions and a good place to sample the 'water of life'!
Tayview Lodges is the perfect base to explore Highland Perthshire. We are only a couple of minutes off the main A9 Perth to Inverness road, and ten minutes by car from the popular holiday town of Pitlochry.
Tayview Lodges are geographically in the centre of Scotland, meaning it is only an hour and a half in various directions to Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness. It is an ideal location for walkers, cyclists, families and to get together with friends to relax.
Tayview Lodges are situated a mile up the hillside, facing South, off the A9 Perth-Inverness road midway between Dunkeld and Pitlochry.
Four miles north of Dunkeld you will pass a village sign for “Dowally” on your right followed by a sign to the craft centre, again on the right. Shortly after this you will see a signpost for “Guay”. Take this cut off and follow the road up the hill for about 1/2 mile until see a wooden house followed by a small stone bridge. Immediately as you cross the bridge, take the sharp turn on the left. Follow the road round and up the short incline to the entrance to Tayview Lodges.
Please do not use a Satnav on the A9 as you get close to the site as this will take you down the wrong road.
Pitlochry railway station is served by services from Inverness, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as services from London and the South. Alternatively, Dunkeld Railway Sataion is served by the same services. Tayview Lodges is about 8 miles from Pitlochry station and 6 miles from Dunkeld. Taxi Servies run from both stations
Due to its central location on the main A9, Kindallachan is well served by most of the major bus companies, for both north bound and south bound buses. Kindallachan is approximately a mile walk from the lodges mainly on flat ground.
Wifi is available at Tayview Lodges via 3G Wifi routers in the lodges.
