Pitlochry is situated next to the A9 about 25 miles north of Perth. Blair Athol Distillery and Visitor Centre is located on the Southern Edge of Pitlochry about half a mile from the town centre.

From the South

Leave the A9 dual carriageway (Perth-Inverness road) at the junction sign-posted for Pitlochry. Exit the dual carriageway to the left and follow the slip road down under the fly over and continue on the A924 towards Pitlochry. The distillery sits approximately 1 mile from the dual carriageway exit, on the right hand side of the road, opposite the BP filling station.

From the North

Leave the A9 to the left at the sign-post for Pitlochry (before the A9 bridges across Loch Faskally). Continue on this slip road for approximately ¾ mile. Halt at the T-Junction, then turn left, towards Pitlochry (approx. one mile). Entering Pitlochry on Atholl Road, continue straight down this road until you are passed all the shops and hotels. At the southern end of Atholl Road you will pass under the railway bridge. The distillery sits approx 500 yards down Perth Road on the left hand side. The car park is opposite the BP filling station.
