Killin

Killin is an idyllic little town on the north eastern edge of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and the southern edge of the vast 14 mile long Loch Tay, famed for its salmon fishing and watersports. The town straddles the beautiful Falls of Dochart and offers a variety of land and water based activities from hill walking around surrounding Ben Lawers (a Munro bagger at over 3000 ft) and the Breadalbane mountains to fishing boat trips, canoeing and kayaking on Loch Tay.

Ideal for exploring and enjoying activities in both Loch Lomond and Highland Perthshire, Killin is within easy reach of a range of attractions including ancient clan houses like Castle Menzies and Perthshire distilleries. Take time for a tour of The Scottish Cannog Centre in Kenmore alongside Loch Tay, situated just north east of Killin. The award-winning centre includes a reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling on the water, with exhibitions and ancient craft demonstrations.

Horse riding, golf, sailing, mountain biking and hill walking are all widely available around Killin, Loch Tay and the Breadalbanes. Hire outdoor activity equipment, mountain bikes, Canadian Canoes/ Kayaks and pick up local guides from the Killin Outdoor Centre and Mountain Shop on Main Street. The Sustrans National Cycle Network runs right through the heart of town and you'll find a choice of outdoor activity centres and ample opportunities for boat hire in the area.
