Really friendly and welcoming to two wet and mud spattered mountain bikers. Drying my kit was beyond the call of duty the state it was in. Comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Highly Recommended!

The rooms were very nice and clean. Kirstie, our host made us feel comfortable and offered help where necessary. She gave us useful advice about the area and what we could do. A nice and quiet place to stay.

My bedroom was very comfortable - fully equipped with tea and coffee facilities (and biscuits!), hair dryer, television, luggage rack, very comfortable bed - and even free wifi! Lovely bathroom - stocked with Arran Aromatics toiletries. Very attractive, cosy guest... More

An overnight stay last week in this lovely b&b was very comfortable. Our room overlooked the garden a lovely sized room and the ensuite was spotless. Kirstie provides a superb breakfast and we enjoyed our black pudding bunnets!! It was a lovely end to a long touring holiday. Wifi and parking no problem.

Excellent accommodation, and full use of bike stand and hose to clean muddy bikes etc. A warm welcome and to cap it the best breakfast we had all week. I even left something in my room and it was sent to me very promptly. Thanks Kirstie and Geoff.

'The Firs' proudly displays it's Tripadvisor certificate of excellence in the dining room. £75 for our twin room and breakfast we thought a bargain.

A beautiful and peaceful B and B very close to Blair Castle. The town and surroundings are full of hiking and biking paths with charming surprises around every corner. The hostess Kirstie is an angel. We arrived road weary and she welcomed us warmly, making us feel immediately comfortable. Despite full occupancy it was quiet and cozy. We never wanted... More

This is a brilliant little guest house in Blair Atholl. Kirstie and Geoff could not have been more caring and helpful. Running a B+B is, for them, clearly not a business but a vocation. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, and breakfast was wonderful. We'll definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.
