Blair Atholl Visitor Information Centre was officially opened by Perthshire North MSP and Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment & Sustainable Growth in the Scottish Government John Swinney on the 22nd March 2013, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of the Cairngorms National Park. Blair Atholl is the southern gateway to the Cairngorms National Park, approached through the magnificent Pass of Killiecrankie. Blair Atholl is steeped in history and is renowned for its overwhelming scenery. The rugged terrain forms the ideal playground for many outdoor pursuits and access to the Atholl scenery is easy - whether you like country roads, bicycle paths, waymarked trails, or tours guided and unguided. If you walk, you will discover plentiful wildlife and plants, and you may even see red or roe deer.
Atholl Estates Rangers Service offers a wide selection of events within the area for everyone to enjoy, available from March to October. The Atholl Estate Rangers also manage 9 waymarked trails for walkers and cyclists on Atholl Estates.
Blair Atholl Visitor Information Centre is situated opposite the gates of Blair Castle Caravan Park. The Centre is open daily for you to peruse, Blair Atholl Tourist Association volunteers are on-hand at the weekend to assist with any queries.
