About Us

Need to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city? Pitlochry is the place to stay. Only two hours North of Edinburgh, Pitlochry is situated in beautiful Highland Perthshire. It is ideally located to explore the surrounding area with its variety of stunning landscapes and range of activities.

Pitlochry Backpackers is an old Victorian hotel, bursting with character. We offer a range of rooms – dormitory (four to eight beds), twins and double rooms. It’s a relaxing place to stay and unwind, with its big cosy lounge boasting a free pool table, comfy sofas, free tea, coffee & hot chocolate, free WiFi, games, book swap and loads of info on the local area.

Our comfy beds come complete with bedding so there is no need to worry about carrying a sleeping bag. Our self catering kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your favourite dinner. It’s a great place to meet like-minded people and although you might think you’re only staying one night, you’ll end up staying three or four – it’s that kind of place!
