Wonderful woodland walks and amazing views from bridge and below.

Tranquil woodland walks, view soldiers leap, visit the visitors centre for hands on experience too. Sturdy shoes are recommended.

NOTHING WAS OPEN... NOT EVEN THE TOILETS The National Trust For Scotland visitor centre: CLOSED for the winter... More

I visited the Pass of Killiecrankie with my husband in November of this year. The visitor centre was closed but it's out of season so we totally understood that. It's very well signposted and easy to find off of the main road with a good car park available. The walk itself is not suitable for people who cannot handle stairs... More

We spent a few mins in the visitor center reading up on the history before we took the walk. It was a nice easy walk with access to the beach below if you want to walk that far. It was well marked with the historical facts like the "Soldiers Leap" Nice addition to our highland tour.

A short stop by our tour guide at the bridge to have the beautiful picture taken of this place. There was a lot of history over this area and it was a very solemn indeed

Walking around a forest like this in autumn is always spectacular. This forest has several hikes. We walked to Soldiers Leap. The hike is not hard at all and the paths are clearly marked. There are several nice views on the gorge, the river and the forest. Once at the waterfall you can spot salmon swimming upstream. The visitor center... More

This was a lovely walk in November when all the leaves were dropping and changing colour. Even in the fog the views and scenery was amazing. This walk was pretty flat although there are some stairs to climb up and down. A beautiful walk would happily do it again. Although I would note that from now on in the year... More

Need to be fit and mobile to make your way from the visitors Centre down to the Soldiers Leep location, around 600 metres. The views of the river Garry and the autumn trees made it worthwhile for me. The Centre has coffee/tea facilities.

Absolutely gorgeous. Stunning scenery and beautiful views. We even managed to see the salmon leaping in the river and a lovely wee red squirrel!! Spent a couple of hours wandering through the woods. Some parts are a wee bit challenging but overall it's a pleasant relaxing walk.

Another "must do" when travelling on the A9. The scenery is stunning, the history is compelling and the nature/wildlife makes a walk thru Killicrankie a real pleasure. The walk thru the woods to the Soldiers Leap is wwell worth the effort!
