Inverness CastleInverness is the nearest city to the north of Pitlochry. An excellent little city providing great access to the far north and, more importanly, it is home to our favourite restuarant, Rocpool on the river. If you do visit Inverness, lunch in Rocpool is a must. If you get lucky with your table, you might even have a view of the castle.

As a day trip, a loop to Inverness can be made by heading out of Pitlochry to the north via Braemar and a quicker return trip can be made down the A9. Nairn and the outstanding Fort George are also within reach for a day trip from Pitlochry routing via Inverness.
