Pitlochry

The High Street in a very pleasant and picturesque town.

Pitlochry is approx. 30 miles north if Perth,  just off the A9 road and located near to the River Tummel. Running just about parallel to the High Street, the River Tummel has been dammed and a hydro-electric generating plant and fish ladder installed.This is all well worth a visit, along with the gardens, river side walks and theatre. Just follow the signs from the main town car park

Looking down the fish ladder,
approx 10 chambers

From the same place, looking up the
 fish ladder approx 4 chambers.

In the second from top chamber there is an inspection window (underground)
where you can watch the Salmon resting prior to the final surge up into the loch above the dam.

This fantastic looking theatre over-looks
 the river just below the dam.

These cottages are on the river bank just
up the road from the theatre.
