Great theatre with nice views over River Tummel with a nice bar and restaurant. The shop has some great gifts, and around foyer lots of art work to look at and buy. Need to book if want per theatre meal, well worth doing for reasonable price and good food, menus are themed to each show which is a nice touch.

Thoroughly enjoyed "Perfect Days" and haven't laughed so much for a long time. Loved the twist in the story at the end. Highly recommend both the performance and the theatre.

The setting of this not so little theatre is beautiful, right on the river Tummel. Its excellently planned auditorium was comfortable and had good acoustics. The show I saw here, "Whisky Kisses", was disappointing to say the least. Although the singers sang well the music was insipidly predictable with vague echoes of Lloyd Webber. I'm sure the composer could've been... More

Saw two plays this year, Whiisky Kisses which we enjoyed and Passing Places which was very good indeed. Funny, irreverant and very well acted. Sets were magnificent.

Now here's a nice place to go on a wet evening in August. We went last year and with 7 of us this year really appreciated the 'Savers' offer for tickets. The theatre itself is a lovely building with great views and a nice warm atmosphere. You can walk easily from the town over a swaying bridge. The rep team... More

The theatre has a lovely gift shop and reasonably priced restaurant and cafe. The productions change every day and it is helpful to check out what's on beforehand. A real landmark in the town, with delightful views, and a great addition to the country's social life.

The theatre is well situated within 10 minutes walk of Pitlochry centre, appears well maintained, and has helpful support staff. We saw the 'Whiskey Kisses' production, and had a great time. The cast were convincing in their parts, and the story bounced along.

We had not been to the theatre for several years and were delighted that we returned. Great choice of plays over the week - something for everyone. Lovely setting and welcoming staff made this a night to remember. Such a shame that on a Saturday night the theatre was half empty. The tickets are fairly expensive but if in the... More
