  • "Nice, clean, comfortable cabin in stunning surroundings."

    It’s fairly small, and in theory sleeps 7, but we found it a little cramped with 4. Luckily the weather was fine, as drying wet clothes would have been problematic.

  • "Beautiful cosy cabin with spectacular views, so well equipped & the joy of the daily visits from Firbush the squirrel."

    Unfortunately we left the property on the Wednesday due to a few issues which a have already shared with the property owner The main one was the standards of cleaning and a very unpleasant smell it was very disappointing as we saved hard to have this holiday and the children were very upset that we had to leave sooner We are all very disappointed ☹️ with the experience

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful time at the lodge ."

    We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again! Everything was perfect and we even had snow . The view from the lodge is stunning , watching the weather change over the loch is beautiful . Killin provided everything we needed. Local walks , a shop and plenty of peace and quiet. The lodge itself comes well equipped, comfortable beds , a nice shower and a lovely cosy feel .There were even bowls for our dog who I’m sure didn’t want to come back home . He was fascinated by the local ducks . As a family we are so on love with Scotland . The lodge provides a perfect base for exploring this beautiful place . Thank you for a perfect holiday

The property

Tucked on the outskirts of Killin, Perthshire, is this fantastic three-bedroom Scandinavian Lodge, Firbush Lodge.

Enjoying a wonderful location on the shores of Loch Tay, with Ben Lawers forming a majestic backdrop to the site, this lodge benefits from two off-road parking spaces, a lovely safe front decked area complete with furniture for you to relax and enjoy the commanding views.

It’s an ideal place to sit and watch the wildlife, with the possibility of spotting the resident Red Squirrel as he visits from the adjacent woodland.

The open-plan living space with its wood panelling and plush couches, fully-equipped kitchen, and large rustic dining table, provide the perfect setting to prepare and enjoy meals as you reflect on your day’s adventures.

After your meal take a lovely stroll down to the harbour or end the day with drinks whilst playing a fun board game.

The all-electric heating and water system provides ample hot water for the well-appointed bathroom, there are also sumptuous beds where you can drift off to sleep before the next day’s plans begin.

Nearby, you will find the welcoming Boathouse Kitchen and Bar with its soothing open fire and delicious menu for when you decide on a night off from cooking.

There is also, ‘In Your Element’, an outdoor activity organiser providing some unusual experiences such as axe throwing, gorge walking, river tubing as well as segway and canoe tours.

Please note: Seasonal opening and times may change.

For your local amenities, head into the village of Killin, where you’ll find a well-stocked Co-op for all your essentials.

Killin Golf Club is often described as having the most beautiful 9-hole golf course in Scotland, where you can book and pay for your round with the Scottish golf App.

Visit the fascinating Moirlanich Longhouse and dine at the Falls of Dochart Inn which overlook the river rapids.

This traditional building was an old blacksmith dating from the 1700’s, a charming stone building retaining many original features.

There are wonderful walking and cycling routes around Loch Tay, including the Ben Lawyers Nature Reserve and Ben Lawers itself, which is the highest peak of the ‘Ben Lawers Group’, a ridge that includes six other Munros: Beinn Ghlas, Meall Garbh, Meall Corranaich, An Stuc, Meall Greigh and Meall a Choire Leith.

As well as the cycling routes around Loch Tay the local Highland Safaris Team provide ‘Drop at the top and mountain bike hire’ which is a great way to capture stunning scenery without the effort of the uphill climb!

Next stop is Aberfeldy, where you will find The Birks of Aberfeldy, a short walk which was popularised in a song by Robert Burns in 1787, the Black Watch Memorial and Castle Menzies which was the seat of the Chiefs of the Clan Menzies for over 500 years and is now a Charitable Trust Visitor Centre and Museum.

Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery offers pre-booked tours and experiences.

Its mighty copper stills can be seen from the main road.

Further afield, you’ll find Pitlochry, home to the Pitlochry and Moulin Heritage Centre, Atholl Palace Museum, and the Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre.

Also, the nearby Faskally Wood which hosts the Magical Night Time Light Show ‘The Enchanted Forest’ during the months of September-October, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Embark on your adventure to Scotland with a memorable stay at Firbush Lodge.

About the location

KILLIN

Aberfeldy 22 miles; Pitlochry 36 miles; Perth 44 miles.

The village of Killin, on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, in the area of Breadalbane, sits across the stunning Falls of Dochart and has been settled since ancient times. Cup markings on rocks and stone circles tell of an ancient race that inhabited this area. Christianity came to Breadalbane in the 8th century with St Fillan with the Mill bearing his name and St Fillan’s Day held on the 3rd Tuesday in January. The village is strongly associated with two renowned clans, Clan Campbell and Clan MacNab. Finlarig Castle, to the north of the village, was the Campbell stronghold and the MacNabs have their ancient burial ground of Inchbuie near the bridge over the falls. Killin today is a popular tourist destination, due in no small part to the use of the falls in various films and television programmes. The village today has a varied selection of shops, bars and restaurants and watersports are available on nearby Loch Tay. Ideal for walking, Killin has Ben Lawers, the highest of the surrounding Bens, to the north and Ben More and Stobinian to the west.
