We called into the cafe on a walk to the dam and salmon ladder with our daughter. We only stopped for a drink but the staff were friendly, comfortable seating and a beautiful view.

Booked to see Thark. The show was excellent, staging actors and storyline. It would not matter what seat you have all seats have an excellent view. At the interview they sell ice creams. There is also a bar and a cafe at the main entrance along with a shop selling local produce. Leather bags,scarfs and souvenirs. Great night out.

Pitlochry Festival Theatre is in a wonderful position overlooking the river and is a really lovely place to visit. It has marvellous views and is worth exploring simple for its location. Apart from the first rate theatrical performances there is a great deal to see and do within the complex. One can enjoy coffee or snacks or a much more... More

Very good show and well produced and acted with a small cast that also did the scene changing. My only doubt about the production was the orchestra There were 9 of them including a Harp , the band was almost as big as the cast. Third time at Pitlochry Theatre enjoyed every visit.

In many of our past musicals, the actors have played the instruments as well as singing and dancing. Carousel is different, anyone wishing to stage a Rogers and Hammerstein performance must have a separate orchestra. Permission to stage will not be granted otherwise! So good to know that you enjoyed the performance and we look forward to your continued support. More

We tend to visit Pitlochry once or twice a year to visit the theater. Visits have always been good. Yesterday's performance of Carousel was superb. It's never going to be London West End or Broadway, but within the constraints on the cast (13 I think) and an orchestra of 7, we couldn't have asked for more. The theater itself is... More

Hi, Carousel is doing extremely well this season as are many of the other six productions. With Para Handy launching in late October and Scrooge, The Musical in December, there is plenty on offer. Hope to see you again soon and thank you for the lovely review. More
