The weather in Pitlochry is pretty much like the rest of the UK.  Pitlochry enjoys what's called a "Maritime Climate" which means we have cool summers and mild winters (although things have been a little different in recent years!).  
The nearest official Met Office weather station where records are taken is opposite the Fisheries Lab, located in the nearby Faskally Woods.  
Typically the warmest day in Pitlochry can rise to 26 degrees C (79 F) and 
the coldest night can fall to minus 10 degrees C (12 F).

The Queen's View Pitlochry

A great view not often see, the Queen's View from the opposite side of Lach Faskally.  The road on the opposite side of the loch is a beautiful stretch full of fantastic lay-by's and bays to stop off to enjoy a packed lunch picnic.  The road eventually comes out at Foss, just a mile or so from Tummel Bridge.  Worth of an explore if you've never been that way before, if only to see the Queens View for a different viewpoint!
