A piece of history

The National Trust visitor centre, and then the walk to the Soldier's Leap bring this battle-field very much to life

The scenery was spectacular, and plenty of walks of all standards. The Soldier's Leap is worth a look. The Bealach path to Pitlochery is the better route back.

The Kilikrankie walk is a pretty long loop, but through stunning Scottish countryside. We started in Pitlochry and were ready for lunch by the time we got to the visitor centre, only to find the the Soldiers Leap Cafe was shut, apparently permanently. There is a plan for the visitor centre to sell hot drinks and snacks but we were... More

The soldiers leap is the main/only reason to stop here. It is a lovely spot, but lacking in facilities.

We visited on the first day of opening (April 1st) and were surprised that the centre was not ready at all with the staff busy putting our leaflets etc. The cafe was also not open - again a surprise for something so close to the Easter break. For an NTS centre, this reflected poorly on appropriate advanced planning for this... More

The views from the walks around here a dramatic. Excellent for younger kids too (7 and up) as there are educational boards explaining the views (just skim read and you can pretend you know loads!) Not wheelchair friendly though as the walks are over natural turain.

When we visited Killiecrankie at the end of February, it was the first time we had seen the 'Soldier's Leap with snow - it was lovely. We always 'take it in' whilst on a circular walk from Garry Bridge but there is a car park at the Visitor Centre so you don't have to go far to view the 'Leap'... More

Just so peaceful and tranquil and excellent photo opportunities. we visited in the winter time and would definitely return in the summer to catch the variations in the scenery. It is a lovely drive and not far from Pitlochry centre for restaurants/pubs/coffee houses.
