The restaurant, together with its conservatory offers an intimate place to dine. Our outside seating area set on the banks of the river, are for warm summer nights when al fresco dining is idyllic. The River Tummel is one of the major tributaries of the Tay runs a picturesque 58-mile course from Loch Rannoch to the River Tay in Perthshire, passing through Pitlochry. The upper reaches of the river are the final destination for the salmon that work their way upstream from their Atlantic feeding grounds, which includes navigating the salmon ladder at Pitlochry Dam which is just around the corner from our camera location. It is largely a Victorian town, whose success as a tourist resort was due to Queen Victoria visiting the area in 1842, and the arrival of the railway in 1863. It remains a popular tourist resort today and is particularly known as a centre for hillwalking, surrounded by mountains such as Ben Vrackie and Schiehallion.
