We liked the theatre for its intimate setting with easy viewing and acoustics. Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes were in relaxed mood, bringing back memories from a lifetime of experience. We enjoyed every moment. Thanks again.

My wife and I come to pitlochry fairly regularly for short breaks and never miss the opportunity to visit the theatre. It is quite simply a superb experience for young and old with friendly, welcoming staff, beautiful surroundings and a splendid auditorium. This time round it was buddy holly and the cricketers and they were excellent - majority of the... More

Great show in a FANTASTIC venue. The theatre is awsome, perched on the banks of the river. The views are stunning.

Pre theatre dinner was very good. Staff friendly and well informed. Shop a bit expensive but expected. Still some bargains to be had. Enjoyed the buddy holly show.

Location was great and auditorium cosy. Interesting shop and nice paintings for sale. Bar prices a bit on the high side and a bit canteen-like. No incentive to hang around afterwards when there are plenty of cheaper and more atmospheric options in town.

Just back from seeing Michael Buble tribute, Jason Porter and his band on Friday night and it was a brilliant night. Wonderful setting and great music. What more could you ask for? Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Would definitely return.

Had a lovely walk from the town over the dam to festival theatre, very busy with people having a coffee and a small gift shop. Not much going on as out of season

Hopefully you will find time to visit us in the... More

Our holiday group enjoyed an evening at the theatre. We had excellent seats and the show was first-class. The singer had a sore throat, but she carried on with the show, and it did not detract from her performance. The piano was played by an extremely talented guy.

As they say in the trade, 'the show must go on'!! We've had very good feedback for this event despite the sore throat With snow topped mountains surrounding the theatre, you could almost have been transported to the Austrian Alps ;-) More

Visited the theatre for dinner and celtic music concert. Both were excellent. Theatre and restaurant staff are exceptionally pleasant, relaxed and helpful. Food is very good and good value for money. Views from dining room over the river are stunning. Great place to visit.
