The Scottish Village of Killin. 

Killin

Killin is an attractive village near the west end of Loch Tay. Its focal

point is the narrow stone bridge carrying the A827 across the River

Dochart, and it then lines both sides of the main road for over half a

mile to the north east of the bridge. It makes the most of the dramatic Falls of Dochart, a spectacular series of rapids that carry

the river under the bridge and through the village.

 

Killin offers visitors a range of shops and accommodation; and we

particularly recommend the  Outdoor Shop Centre to acquire that

essential bit of kit you left at home. This is especially useful for

walkers arriving in Killin while following the 79 mile  Rob Roy Way

on its route from Drymen to Pitlochry.

 

Also at the Loch Tay end of Killin is the excellent Killin Golf Club,

while a short distance up the nearby Glen Lochay is the  Moirlanich Longhouse, in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.

 

Historic monuments

The ruins of Finlarig Castle on the wooded mound to the north of the

road toward Loch Tay, and anyone taking a closer look will also find

the nearby ruins of a chapel that served as a mausoleum. But if you

are thinking of exploring, take heed of the sign warning of the

dangerous state of these structures and be careful. 

 

By the bridge over the Falls of Dochart. there is access to the

Island of Inchbuie on which you find the ancient Clan MacNab burial

ground: a notice on the locked gate gives information about where to

find the key.

 

Close to the north end of the bridge is the old St Fillans Mill. As you

move north east along Killin's single main street anyone wiht a feel for

the hills will find their attention captured by the knobbly ridge towering

over the villaage, this is the Tarmachan Ridge, a complex of mountains forming the western extension of the main Ben Lawers ridge that hems

in the north side of Loch Tay.
