4½ miles

Immediately past Pitlochry turn left and then right on the B8079. This takes us past the Faskally picnic area which has lovely walks and public toilets. We then travel through the wonderfully named ‘Pass of Killiecrankie’, the sight of the battle that took place on the 27th July 1689 between the Jacobites under ‘Bonnie Dundee’ and Government forces. It is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Their visitor centre tells the story of the battle and also has displays on the landscapes and wildlife of the area.

Before we reach the centre we can take a short detour along the B8019 to the Queen's View, a viewpoint affording magnificent views along Loch Tummel to the peak of Schiehallion (3547ft and meaning Fairy Hill of the Caledonians). Queen Victoria visited here in 1866.

We now travel through the village of Killiecrankie. It was near here at Strathgarry House that the BBC traditional music series “The Highland Sessions” was filmed. We are now in Glen Garry and after the hamlet of Aldune we pass under the new road which we can now rejoin or continue on the next section of the Old A9 to Blair Atholl.
