Elmwood is in a prime position in one of the finest residental streets in Pitlochry. The back of the house faces the road which gives us the benefit of a lovely open view over to the hills from the front of the house.
Please don't judge us by Google 'Streetview', we had only just moved in when the car came round and we were in the process of clearing the house. The back area of the house has considerably improved since then! The house opposite finished their building work and has one of the most spectacular gardens in Pitlochry, opened to the public as part of the Pitlochry in Bloom 'Secret Garden Day'.
The Festival Theatre, Atholl Palace Hotel, Dam and Fish Ladder, Blair Atholl Distillery and golf course are all within walking distance from the house. For those wishing to dine in the town, a car would not be necessary.

You can see where we are on this tourist map - you don't need to print it as we have copies for you on arrival.
We are situated half way along Lower Oakfield. The back of the house faces the road: look for the row of trees and our white sign at the gates (not visible from the south until the last minute). Our guests find that reversing into the drive works well, with cars parked alongside the boundary wall.
The photograph on the left shows you the what you are looking for as you approach from the south.
Note: It may be confusing for you if you follow Googlemap, as the Poplar's Hotel is shown incorrectly in our position.
The main route (A9) bypasses the town, there is a mainline station with London sleeper services and there is a regular bus service to Inverness, Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Edinburgh airport is 90 minutes drive, Glasgow is about 2 hours. St Andrews (Open Championship Course) is 1 hour 30 minutes away.
For those arriving by rail or bus, we would be happy to collect you on your arrival.
