Pitlochry is one of Scotland's most beautiful and vibrant places to visit.
In the heart of Scotland with real hospitality, clear sparkling air, beautiful scenery, rich clan history, fine food, plenty of space and lots to see and do. Pitlochry is primarily a holiday destination, which caters for the holiday maker year round in its own special way.
We wish to inform visitors that new restrictions for the hospitality sector become law on Friday 9th October until 25th October 2020 inclusive.
Nationwide measures (outside the central belt area)
- All premises may only open indoors between 6am and 6pm, with no sales of alcohol.
- All premises may open outdoors until 10pm, including for the sale of alcohol, if licensed to do so.
- Current meeting rules apply in hospitality settings: maximum of 6 people from two households.
- Limited exemption for meals and drinks (without alcohol) for guests only in accommodation, transport and student residences that are licensed premises.
- Exemption for specific life events (eg. wedding receptions) which may continue (with alcohol) as per current meetings rules (eg. 20 persons limit in licensed premises)

The Scottish Government is not advising people who have already booked holiday accommodation in October to cancel, but ask that people think about whether they need to travel outside their local health board area, especially if you live in, or would be travelling through the central belt area.
One household only restriction will apply to self-catering properties from when the revised regulations become law on Friday 25th September.
Table service only will continue to be required in all hospitality premises. Customer contact details is now a mandatory requirement in all the hospitality sector. This helps the Track and Trace team.
Face coverings for customers and staff is now mandatory when entering, exiting and moving around hospitality businesses. The only exemption is when customers are seated for the service of food and drink.
A maximum of 6 people from two households can meet in public indoor spaces, such as cafes, pubs and restaurants. Children under 12 from those two households do not count towards the limit.
