AUTUMN IN PITLOCHRY

Autumn is a great time to visit Pitlochry as the days wane, the nights close in and the trees don their vibrant hues, a chill creeps into the air. Not the bite of wintry blusters, but just a nip to let us know a new season is at hand.

WINTER WEATHER IN PITLOCHRY


Winters in Pitlochry (from November to March) are usually mild and wet, punctuated by the occasional, sub zero, cold snap.  
You can also expect the odd snow storm like we've experienced over the past few days, when the Highland Perthshire landscape turns magically white!
