Pitlochry Festival Theatre is a theatrical phenomenon, operating a unique repertoire system, which offers a different show every night of the week – two on matinée days!
This means you can literally stay for six days and see six different plays. Its ensemble is the largest in Scotland; its auditorium has 544 seats in which over 60,000 visitors sit every summer. "There are plenty of theatres with a claim to having beautiful settings, but few are as delightful as that enjoyed by the Pitlochry Festival Theatre." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, June 2011.
