Pitlochry Dam and Fish Ladder

Venture out from your base at the Hilton Dunkeld House hotel and check out the Pitlochry Dam & Fish Ladder, a popular Perthshire attraction for salmon watching. The salmon ladder was built to allow the salmon to travel up and over the 86 metre high dam and make their way upstream to the spawning ground.

A viewing chamber allows visitors to watch the salmon up close as they prepare for their big jump, and the best time to view salmon travelling up the fish ladder is between April and late September each year.
