Today I decided to do an in depth analysis of
Pitlochry as it's obviously a very popular tourist town both with
International visitors as well as local Scottish visitors given the number
of Scots accents I've heard around the place :-)
I arranged to use the Internet Cafe in
Pitlochry as my base for operations and many thanks to Martin for his help
in getting me setup...
I then headed up to the top of the town and
started to take pictures on the way back...
This is Macnaughtons where they do a whole
range of Scottish and Clan products, tartans, kilts, etc. Neil Fraser told
me they helped to design a new tartan for the Fraser clan.
Across the road you can have a sit down Indian
curry... Scotland's favourite food!
Over the road you'll note two eating places.
The first is a takeaway fish and chip shop again very popular in Scotland
and next door is Macdonalds where you can get Bed & Breakfast but also a
traditional Scottish High Tea which are getting increasingly rare in
Scotland. I did in fact try the High Tea and thoroughly enjoyed the
main meal of fish and chips but thought the scone and cakes were a bit
stale as if they were yesterdays. Service was good and fast. You
could get a room that day at £22.00.
This was the Whisky Shop with lots of brands
to choose from
Yet another hotel and bar of which there are
dozens in Pitlochry
The Paper Shop where you can get your daily
The Backpackers Hotel
Country Wear shops
Edinburgh Woollen Mill
Knitwear Centre and local Chemist
Lots of wee gifts to take home with you
Great place to get your smokes, newspapers,
A really great butcher if you are self
And this is where you book your theatre
And this is the front of the Scotland's Hotel
- A member of the Best Western Hotel group. Staff on the whole were
pleasant but was rather disappointed with the Dinner. Soup was only warm
and not hot, the main course seemed more like a snack than a proper dinner
with a tiny floret of cauliflower and three pea pods for the veg., Hardly
worth the £19.95 they charged for it. So I'd suggest Bed & Breakfast and
go out for dinner or a High Tea.
