After a hearty breakfast there’s nothing better than strapping on a pair of walking boots and exploring the exciting trails and mountains around Killin. We’re located within Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, which means you’ll be spoilt by the variety of marvellous walks on offer, which can be tailored to suit any mood or ability
Rob Roy Way
A well traversed route, and for good reason, is the famous Rob Roy Way, which stretches across Scotland between Drymen and Pitlochry and passes through Killin. Not for the faint hearted, the 148 Km walk takes seven days, and follows the paths taken by villainous Rob Roy MacGregor in the 17th and 18th centuries. www.robroyway.com
We offer a shuttle service for walkers following in the footsteps of the famous Scottish outlaw, and after a well earned night spent recharging your batteries at the Inn, we’ll be happy to drop you back en route.
Ben Lawers and the Munro’s
If you’ve set your sights on “bagging,” a Munro, then climbing Ben Lawers, - the highest and by far the most impressive mountain in Perthshire, is an absolute must. The exquisite panoramic views of Scotland offered at its peak on a clear day include the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea.
And if that’s whet your appetite for hill walking, you’ll be glad to hear that there’s nearly twenty Munro’s in the area, including the amazing Tarmachan Ridge, Ben More and many more, visit www.munromagic.com for inspiration.
The Infinity Pool
On a warm summers day nothing beats a bracing dip in crystal clear Scottish fresh water. Last year we stumbled upon a truly magical picnic spot, which is about 40 minutes walk from the Inn, and has its’ own rock infinity pool surrounded by fantastic scenery. We can promise an unforgettable picnic at the unique hill side spot, so be sure to ask our staff for directions to its secret location.
Our chefs can provide delicious packed lunches for hungry hill walkers upon request.
Local Hill Walk
We can offer a truly unique fishing experience with our legendary Ghillie Bill Hill. With Salmon fishing from January to May and Trout fishing from May to September, we can provide all tackle, boat and engine – please see our link on the fish Scotland website for more details.
In Killin we’re on the Sustrans Cycle Network, and surrounded by an abundance of forestry tracks and pathways, which will suit all ages and levels of experience. Visit (link to www. sustrans.org.uk) and you’ll gain access to a wide variety of maps detailing the numerous cycle routes in and around the village.
You’ll also find the new Sustrans cycleway Route 7 which goes from Glasgow up north to Inverness and passes right through Killin. If you haven’t brought a bike, don’t fret, our staff will be happy to arrange local bike hire for you and your family.
A short walk from the Inn you can play golf in true Scottish style. Killin Golf Course offers 9 holes under the dramatic shadow of Ben Lawers while overlooking scenic Loch Tay. And that’s just for starters, nearby we also have Kenmore Golf Course, Taymouth Castle, and also St Fillans Golf Couse.
