Outdoor Activities

Killin is not only a great central location for activities and outdoor pursuits, it is also one of those parts of Scotland that seems to have something for everyone - simply a lovely part of the world to spend a day or a week in pursuit of the great outdoors.

If you want something relaxed and leisurely, you can explore the great outdoors on board a 4x4, by bicycle or by foot. You can watch the amazing wildlife, play a round of golf, enjoy the stunning scenery or visit a distillery for a wee dram. For something more heart-pumping, you can test your skills at off-road driving and put a Land Rover to the test by driving it over rough terrain and steep, slippery gradients.

Below are some of the activities we can suggest. We have put together some packages for you to book and enjoy. Many activities are also available as an extra when you book accommodation online. We will contact you as soon as possible should an activity be unavailable.
