Walked from Pitlochry to Killiecrankie, via Craigower. One of the most beautiful walks we have done, and the views from the top of Craigower, just breathtaking.

this would be a fantastic, however 2 of the main bridges on the route have washed away, so it does mean you can only go so far before having to turn back. Beautiful walk & very picturesque.

It was jolly wet when we arrived but it just added to the beauty of the place, trees, a valley, peaty water and so atmospheric.

I was impressed with the free visitor's center that offers hands on learning actives for the kids, great for those traveling with littles. My tween even enjoyed the exhibits. It's about a 5 min hike out to the Solider's Leap area. In the stone circle just before the visitor's center you can practice jumping the leap yourself. Free restrooms &... More

The Visitors Centre has some very good displays explaining the geology, wildlife and history of the area (although the advertised café has been replaced by a coffee machine) and there is plenty of bird and animal life (including red squirrels) to see on the well-signposted walks. The views along the way are spectacular and there are plenty of places to... More

We spent a few hours here wandering round the centre before heading off on a lovely walk to Soldiers Leap. We were lucky enough to see a pine marten and lots of different birds. It's a bit uneven at times so sensible shoes are a must. The views are worth the trek,

A narrow spot in a beautiful valley, connected with the history of Scotland, because of a battle during the Jacobite rising of 1745. Nice hike along the river.

Excellent information centre run by the National Trust for Scotland. Well maintained pathways to vantage points. Plenty of seats strategically placed along the way!

Last winter's storm damage has interrupted a great walk, which takes in Killiecrankie. It involves the metal footbridge near to Garry Bridge car-park which prevents you crossing the river but signs have been put out for the diversion at this point - likewise, if you find yourself at the other side of this bridge. However, there is a missing footbridge... More

Myself and my partner visited today and weren't really sure about what walk we wanted to do. The gentleman in the visitors' centre (from South Shields, didn't note his name!) was so enthusiastic and helpful. The walk we ended up doing was beautiful and we would definitely go back to do more walks.
