Killiecrankie Visitor Centre

The Killiecrankie Visitor Centre is located on the east side of The Pass of Killiecrankie, a magnificent wooded gorge with the River Garry flowing along its base. The Battle of Killiecrankie, the major event in the first of the Jacobite uprisings, was fought nearby.

Wander around the visitor centre and discover the gory facts about the battle of Killiecrankie and the delights of the natural history and wildlife of the Pass of Killiecrankie, with interactive displays, historic weapons and seasonal information.

Take a short stroll through attractive woodland, with stunning views of the Pass, down to the historic Soldier’s Leap.

Enjoy a longer walk along the river through the magnificent wooded gorge of the Pass of Killiecrankie. Link in to one of the trails of the Pitlochry walks network to really explore this area further.

Finish your visit with a relaxing cappuccino and home baking from the snack bar and browse around the shop with its good selection of books (particularly natural history, Jacobites and local titles), gifts, souvenirs and children’s items.
