The Open Restaurants page details all the opening times

Our guide to the open restaurants, cafes and tearooms in Pitlochry, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Dunkeld, Blair Atholl and Rannoch area of the highlands of Perthshire. We have detailed the hours and days of the week they are open along with a link to each open restaurant.

They are organised the restaurants by town:-

  1. Pitlochry
  2. Aberfeldy and Kenmore
  3. Blair Atholl
  4. Dunkeld

The main tourist season generally runs from March to the end of October each year.

The off season or winter opening varies with each restaurant. Pitlochry Festival Theatre is critical in attracting visitors to is shows towards the end of November and leading up to Christmas, which helps hotels and restaurants during this normally quiet period. January sees a number of restaurants closing and staff taking their main holidays.
