The historic village of Killin is situated practically in the exact centre of Scotland and was the stronghold of the MacNabs and latterly the Breadalbane Campbells during the times of the clans. The village sits at the head of Loch Tay nestling round the base of the aptly named Sron Na Clachan (Nose of the Village) and looked over by the massive Ben Lawers (3984 feet) the highest mountain in Britain up to this distance from the south. From Loch Tay looking west over Killin is the easily identifiable Ben More and Stobinnion standing guard at the west of Killin like two massive sentries.

Killin is an ideal spot to centre oneself for touring the central and west highlands. Glasgow is about an hour and a quarter away, Edinburgh about an hour and a half, Stirling and Perth about and hour. Oban and Fort William about an hour and a half. Ideal places to visit also include Glencoe on the road to Fort William , Scone Palace near Perth, Drummond Castle near Crieff.
