If a hike up Ben Vrackie seems a bit much, a similar collection of great views can be had from only 200m above Pitlochry at the summit of Craigower Hill. Up and down from Torrdarach House in well under 2 hours on foot, this route can also be cycled via Killiecrankie.
Great views down to Pitlochry and on a clear day you can see Lochs Tummel and Rannoch with the mountains of Glen Coe in the distance. The photos below were taken with an iphone on a less than clear summer evening but you can get a feel for the views on offer. A walk up Craigower Hill is right at the top of our favourite Pitlochry walks, ideally combined with a pint at the Pitlochry Golf Club on the way back down.
