Black Spout waterfall – Edradour, Pitlochry

Sign post in the Black Spout Woods

One of our favourite short walks around Pitlochry is through the Black Spout Woods to the Black Spout waterfall.

The woods can be accessed from the Atholl Road near to the Blair Atholl Distillery (home of Bells whisky). However, our preferred route is a short walk from above the falls starting at the Edradour Distillery.

The route is less than 1km in each direction. Follow the signs down from Edradour and you can’t go wrong. Lovely oak woodland with great views across the fields to Ben Vrackie, Craigower Hill and Pitlochry. The waterfall itself is about 60m high and after periods of rainfall can be an impressive torrent.

Well worth the short walk. Easily combined with a tour of Edradour Distillery.

Edradour Distillery, Pitlochry

The sign at Edradour Distillery

Here in Pitlochry we have the smallest distillery in Scotland. The Edradour distillery is housed in a collection of old whitewashed farm buildings set in an idyllic Highland Perthshire glen.

Using the smallest stills allowed by law, the three distillers of Edradour produce only 12 casks of whisky per week. All by hand! Its a cracking malt – ‘smooth and creamy with a nutty, honeyed finish’. Here at Torrdarach we always have a bottle on the shelf.

The distillery offers a very interesting tour from 10am-4pm throughout the summer season. Well worth a visit. Check out their website – Edradour Distillery

From the car park at Edradour you can make the short walk through an oak woodland to The Black Spout waterfall. One of the of the highest waterfalls around Highland Perthshire and easily accessible. Great views across the fields to Ben Vrackie from the walk in. Not to be missed on a visit to Edradour.
