Killiecrankie Pass and Visitor Centre

The Pass of Killiecrankie is an impressive wooded gorge and part of Scotland's ancient oak and mixed deciduous woodlands. With its natural beauty this spot has become a favourite sightseeing stop in Perthshire.  Learn all about "The Battle of Killiecrankie and see where one courageous soldier escaped by making a spectacular 18ft leap across the River Garry - now famously known as  "Soldiers Leap".
The Visitor Centre located above the gorge features exhibits on the battle and offers a programme of guided walks, if required, throughout the season.  At the Visitor Centre, via a remote camera link you can watch the birds nesting at close range. Then have a browse through the gift shop and out onto the picnic area and to the open air snack bar.

On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of July celebrate the 326th anniversary of the Battle of Killiecranke - gates open 11am - 5pm. Go on a Battlefield Tour and see where the government troops lined up.  Learn about the many highland traditions from that era -  piping, music, traditional story telling and dance.  On the Saturday night there is a Ceilidh where you can enjoy an evening of great storytelling, music and dance.
