Alastair's Move to the USA
4th October 2003


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 paper


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, books, etc.


A really great butcher if you are self catering


And this is where you book your theatre tickets


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.
