Killin, a hideaway in the Trossachs
Killin is one of the Trossachs hidden gems. This small vibrant village is highly recommended as a place to visit on any trip to this area, and is only a 30 minute drive from Stirling.
Killin featuring the Falls of Dochart
Killin is a Scottish village situated at the head of Loch Tay in the Trossachs of Stirling. The west end of the village is situated around the scenic Falls of Dochart where most visitors stop off for the photograph opportunity.
The main street leads down towards the Loch at the confluence of the rivers Dochart and Lochay. The Falls are crossed via the narrow stone Dochart Bridge which you have to cross to enter into into Killin.
Killin is located at the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, making it the perfect place for nature and outdoors enthusiasts. There is plenty of wildlife in the area and the alpine flora attracts amateur and professional photographers.
Killin is a destination for visitors during the summer and winter for outdoor activities including hillwalking, deer stalking and fishing.
Although Killin is on the edge of the Scottish highlands, it is only a leisurely 90 minutes drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and has lots to see and do to make the journey worthwhile. It is a vibrant community with a surprising number of accommodation providers, places to eat and retail outlets.
