I had no expectations on arrival as I wasn't sure where I was coming to stay as it was a surprise booking. Our experience at The Old Smiddy was a lovely comfortable and relaxing one. We arrived later than expected on our bicycles - narrowly missing last orders for our meal but Lynne welcomed us with open arms and told... More

You could not get a better welcome or more friendly and attentive hostess. Lynn was a real star! I arrived late after a long and stressful day and Lynn could not have been more helpful. She came out to greet me on arrival, looked after my elderly parents and even put out dog biscuits and a water bowl for my... More

Sadly we were visiting Killin for a family funeral and we could not have had a better home from home experience. We were looked after superbly by Lynn and Michael who attended to our every need! Warm burning fires, comfortable rooms, excellent food and highland hospitality! We cannot recommend this B&B and restaurant highly enough! Thank you Lynn & Michael.

I emailed the day before our visit to see if dogs were welcome. Received a reply to say small dogs were welcome with prior arrangement so I made a booking. We were made to feel very welcome - even our dog was brought three little dog treats on a plate! Such a thoughtful gesture! The food was delicious and reasonably... More

When we arrived in Scotland the weather had decided to turn against us. It happened to be the least pleasant weather for us as we are not used to such unpredictable weather fluctuations back in India. The drive to Old Smiddy at Kinclaven by Stanley was a good one with fields with sheep stretching out far and wide on both... More

My husband and I are just back from an overnight stay in this wee gem of a place. We truly couldn't fault it. The owners Lynn and Michael were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We stayed in the Paris room which was spotless. The bed was super comfy and at £28 fantastic... More

We stayed two nights on the way back from the highlands. What a beautiful location and fantastic set up. We were made to feel very welcome and our family room was most comfortable. Although the village and its pubs and restaurants all looked very tempting we stayed and had fabulous meals in our own restaurant both nights! Wonderful food and... More

We love Killin and have always stayed at the same hotel but this time we booked the Paris Room at The Old Smiddy for a short break and weren't disappointed. We knew the Paris Room was 'compact' but the price reflected this and the spotless en suite facilities and comfortable bed were all there for us after a day's walking.... More

The Old Smiddy is run by delightful, friendly and very accommodating people. It is a family run B&B and you can tell. The welcome you get is second to none and the room we stayed in was very clean, tidy and spacious, tastefully decorated too. There is a cosy "snug" with an open fire where you can relax with a...
