Great walk although mostly up hill and across fields at times so appropriate clothing and footware necessary.

An outstanding very scenic enchanting small town on the A9 snuggled in between a large river and a host of huge looming mountains. Many affordable hotels, inns etc for couples singles families, elderly. Main attractions ..... Black Spout wood & waterfall: a refreshing gradual ramble up the tree/fern shaded slopes to view this wonderful feature at various viewpoints. Blair Atholl... More

Well worth the short walk to view this amazing waterfall that is stunning and breathtaking. Short walk from the Athol Palace Hotel grounds that are also well worth a visit.

Visited on a beautiful winters morning. Frosty, blue skies, sun shining...with snow on the ground. A few 100 metres from Atholl Road, easy walking....well signed. Nice viewing platform. Impressive waterfall. It was so good that a professional photographer was on-site, taking time lapsed photographs. Very pleasant walk and if you wished you could walk onto Edradour Distillery.

Thankfully my fiancée convinced me to to walk around the woods and make the short climb to the waterfall. The waterfall is a beautiful sight, particularly if you can see it in full flow after it has rained. If you are ever in Pitlochry, make sure you make the effort to see this.

Visited after rain the 60 ft waterfall was a sight to see with the background of autumn leaves. The walk is well signposted and not to difficult a climb

Red & green leaves on the moist ground. Pathways that allow you to feel alone. Wonderful Beech trees overshadowing, indeed whispering to you. And all this within a short walk from the town. Another reason to be in Pitlochry

We enjoyed our hike here which was very well marked, peaceful, beautiful and altogether worthwhile. Being outdoors in Scotland is very special.
