News & Offers from Pitlochry Backpackers Hotel

We’re almost ready at Pitlochry

July 22nd 2021

and we’re very excited! All going to plan we should be back to a sort of normal. Meaning we’ll have both private rooms, and fingers crossed dorms once again. Come and see what a lovely stay you can have in our neck of the woods. Our town is friendly and has more than it’s fair share of sights and attractions. For a curiosity you can look towards the Pitlochry fish ladder, allowing over 4000 salmon a year to reach their destination. Or if you’re not feeling fish you could browse one of the two distilleries that Pitlochry is home to. But of course if you’ve come to just enjoy the wonderful surroundings of the highlands know that you’re never more than 10 minutes away from some of the best scenery that Scotland has to offer. We’ll see you there…
