My friend and I (and the dog) were dropped off ar the visitor centre and walked the pass to Pitlochry. The visitor centre has a cafe and toilets and a shop and exhibition. I have done the walk before and this was the driest, no muddy patches. I saw red squirrels right beside me where the path is tree height... More

The visitor centre at Killiecrankie is a good information point and there are fantastic walks down to the Soldiers Leap and along the river Garry. Fantastic scenery with breathtaking views.

Very good visitors centre with lots of information. Legendary tale of Soldiers Leap seems unbeleivable but location offers good views of the upper gorge. The rather long walk through the woods is pleasant but does not offer much interest unless you can imagine the scene of the horrific battle. If you continue to the bridge you are rewarded by the...

£2 (June 2014) to park and some great woodland walks that lead down to the River Garry. Highly recommended, but worth wearing suitable footwear in case it's muddy and for the steep climb back.

Lovely views, information regarding the various walks well presented. Signposting of the different walks and Robbie Burns poems could be better. Not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

Did the bungee jump last year and went back to see it from ground level... Scary to think I did the leap of faith...

Lovely walk down to the soldier's leap from the visitor center & café. Just imagining the desperate leap across the rushing water some 350 + years ago, while thousands lost their lives in hand to hand fighting, added to the atmosphere. Surprised to pay for the car park but understand the need to preserve these ancient sites.

Feature a bungee jump site by Highland Fling. A must do for all adrenaline seeker. A jump with scenic and picturesque view of the tay forest and the river. After, drop by Pitlochry town for cup of tea.

Visitor centre and cafe here, both of which are worth stopping for, combines history and nature, kids will love it It's a lovely walk along by the water, but beware it can be tough going, as it's quite a steep walk, with uneven pathways, and high steps (made from railway sleepers). Those with physical difficulties, heart or lung problems and... More

My German lady friend wanted to see the Scottish Battlefields & Killiekrankie was no disappointment. The scenery was breathtaking & the visitor centre well appointed. There were picnic tables outside where we ate alfresco. Well worth a visit on a fine day!
