Whisky Galore - until November 12 - Before this year’s My Fair Lady, this was the most popular show in the Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s history.  The show has just stared up again and will run until November 12.  Our guests are loving it and tickets are selling fast.  For more info on the storyline –  https://pitlochryfestivaltheatre.com/pitlochry-festival-theatre/whats-on/whisky-galore-a-musical.html

Enchanted Forest - Up and running at the moment in the Pitlochry Explorers’ Garden behind the Pitlochry Festival Theatre.  This superb sound and light show has about a week left to run. This years show has broken all previous records for ticket sales with some tickets still available for this final week.  Wrap up warm and try the mulled wine!

Sleeping Beauty – 15 December – 7 January – This year’s panto is sure to be another great success – “Spinning wheels, wicked fairies, beautiful princesses, strange enchantments, overgrown castles, heroic princes – what else could it be but that most magical of fairytales, Sleeping Beauty. Join us this festive season to see if Nurse Nancy, Fester the Jester – and a very stylish Prince – can awaken Princess Beauty from her spellbound slumber . . . and save the kingdom into the bargain!”

Winter Words Festival- 27 January – 5th February – Now in its 8th year.  A celebration of the written and spoken word, including…..

“Sir Chris Bonnington returns to Winter Words with some breathtaking images to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his first ascent of the north face of the Eiger. He will also recount his involvement in the dramatic story of extreme climbing – to say nothing of the media circus! – involved in the first ascent of the Eiger Direct in the winter of 1966. “

“Another Winter Words favourite is Neil Oliver whose latest book, A History of Ancient Britain, accompanies the hugely successful TV series of the same name. The multi-talented historian, archaeologist, author and TV broadcaster will share the secrets of the series and demonstrate his passion for the magic of this country’s ancient past.”


 – Sunday 12 Feb – presented by the Dunfermline Gilbert and Sullivan Society.  A classic G&S opera including much loved favourites such as When I Went To The Bar;The Law Is The True EmbodimentThe Nightmare Song and When Britain Really Ruled The Waves. Should be fun.  I love G&S!

Swan Lake – Saturday 15th Feb  -  Performed by Ballet West, this well loved classical ballet will prove very popular at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre.





The Craig McMurdo Quartet – Tuesday 14th February – “Craig McMurdo is renowned as one of theUK’s finest crooners. Frequently compared in the press to Harry Connick Jnr. and Michael Bublé, and often described as a “one man Rat Pack”, he performs an eclectic mix of romantic jazz standards, lounge and swing, imbued with his characteristic warmth and humour. ”

Tenors Un Limited – Friday 2nd March – “Tenors Un Limited combine their own blend of unique vocal arrangements with wit and immense charm to create fresh approaches to operatic standards, classical crossover, Rat Pack classics and original compositions.”

Alvin Stardust
 – Saturday 17 March 2012 –Alvin returns to Pitlochry Festival Theatre to perform his greatest hits from a musical career spanning the 5 decades, plus tracks from his recently released new album.

The Pitlochry Festival Theatre and the Pitlochry Explorers’ Garden are located near to Torrdarach House, our Pitlochry B&B in Highland Perthshire




The Enchanted Forest – Pitlochry Explorers’ Garden

The Enchanted Forest is an impressive sound and light show on in Pitlochry during the month of October.  This year’s show has relocated from its previous home in Faskally Woods, to the Explorers’ Garden behind the Pitlochry Festival Theatre.  The relocation of the show was the inspiration for this year’s theme ‘Transitions’.

Dress up warm!  We went last night and it was a bit chilly in Pitlochry – get yourself a mulled wine on the way in.  Tasty.  It takes about an hour to walk around the network of paths.  Here are a few photos of the EnchantedForest.  Lots more on our Facebook page –  https://www.facebook.com/Torrdarach.

Tickets are available at the Pitlochry Enchanted Forest website at http://www.enchantedforest.org.uk/.  Have fun.




















Rally of Scotland 2011 – near Pitlochry

The Rally of Scotland is the penultimate round of the high-profile Intercontinental Rally Challenge. A number of the stages have takenplace in Highland Perthshire and on Sunday 9th October there was a lengthy stage through the forest above Loch Tummel and the Queen’s View.  As Loch Tummel is only a few miles from our Pitlochry B&B we decided to spectate at our first rally!

As it turns out, spectating at a rally consists of standing around in the cold for quite a while waiting for the odd rally car to blast past in a matter of seconds. I have to admit, however, that the bursts of action are probably worth the wait.  As you can see from the images below I did not master the art of high speed motorsport photography!

I have also uploaded a video to the Torrdarach House, Piltochry B&B  youtube channel.  Equally amateurish.  For more detailed information on the Rally of Scotland click through to their website at http://www.msaevents.co.uk/rallyofscotland/home.php

Loch Tummel is only a few miles from our Pitlochry B&B, Torrdarach House.
