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!

Michael Portillo Comes to Pitlochry!

Steered by his Bradshaw's guide, Michael Portillo begins this leg of his journey in Stirling, where he visits the scene of a bloody battle at Bannockburn. Following in the footsteps of Victorian holidaymakers, he travels north to Crieff to experience the popular Hydro. In the ancient capital of Scotland, Perth, 
Michael learns what it takes to make a sporran before catching the highland mainline to Pitlochry and one of Queen Victoria's favourite haunts. 
He finishes for the day with a wee dram in Pitlochy's own Edradour distillery, Scotland's smallest distillery.
