Things to do for a 2 day highland trip?

We are taking a trip next weekend to the highlands, basing ourselves in Pithlochry from Friday night until Sunday morning.

Any suggestions what to do/where to visit while we are there? We have a car.

So far planning to visit queens view but any other ideas for us?

Should we head for Fort William direction or Loch Lomond?

You should spend some time in the area.

There's Blair Atholl, with Blair Castle, some nice scenery and Glen Tilt which penetrates a long way into the mountains to the north.

There's Dunkeld, with its cathedral, some nices cafes and places to eat, and the Loch of the Lowed bird centre up the hill behind it.

Then there's Killiecrankie, The Hermitage both of whch belong to the National Trust for Scotland.

You might also want to look at Loch Tay. Aberfeldy and Kenmore. The crannog half way up it. The falls at Killin. Or you could drive for miles up Glen Lyon, to the minor road heading over the shoulder past Ben Lawers, and down to Killin ...

Heading past Killin you're on the way westwards to Tyndrum, and thence Loch Lomond, Oban or Glencoe. But personallyI wouldn't want to spend two days driving long distances ...

Is this in combination with your other [unanswered] post about St Andrews? If so, you're packing a lot in if you include the west coast as well. I think you should concentrate on St A and the nentral highlands, or mayebe just the central highlands alone. Simply becuase of time.

PS if heading north to Perth, Falkland Palace isn't all that far from the motorway ...
