“Excellent food & good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

They have a limited menu but the fish & chips here were excellent & the service was friendly & attentive. The house white wine was fully priced but went well with the food. This is one of the cheaper eating options in & around Killin. Recommended.

What a lovely place to eat. A smart resturant with fantastic service. The food was very very good.
I had haddock and chips the best I've had anywhere. The wife and I from Gloucester recommend this place for a good meal in a friendly atmosphere and not expensive. Our visit 05/09/2012

Where could we go? We had cycled to Killin via Glenogle, using the gorgeous National Cycle Network Route 7 and had been caught in the worst rain/hail/thunderstorm I think I've ever been in, which descended un-forecast out of nowhere. We arrived in Killin soaked, freezing and very, very muddy. 6 of us. The youngest is 12 and we were badly in need of a meal and a de-frost before we started back for Strathyre. But surely no one would want us looking like we did! But I was so wrong. Lynn and the lovely girls at The Old Smiddy were incredibly welcoming, providing not only towels, but a place to change, some clean clothes and even a lift!!! And never has a meal tasted so good. All the food was great (I had the fish and chips - and their description was bang on!), the atmosphere was lovely and we simply couldn't have asked for more. Killin is a gorgeous little place, with the Dochart falls providing a stunning and picturesque backdrop, and the old Smiddy can be considered the heart of the place. Go there and send our love.

Room Tip: Sorry, we didn't sleep there, but I'd already filled in the bit about sleep quality. The res...

The room was decorated to a high standard and was very homely.
Given the inclement and cold weather outside, the room was very cosy, despite the building's age.

The hosts were attentive and friendly and provided a tasty breakfast.

I would definitely visit again.

Michael Crow is the perfect host - from the moment we walked in to the Old Smiddy there was a friendly welcome. The room was very comfortable, the food and drink were excellent, and the staff went way beyond the call of duty to make our stay perfect. Highly recommended.

This is by far the the best Bed & Breakfast / Bistro, it has excellent accommodation with great food and even better service. If you fancy a week, weekend or even just 1 night, you won't be disappointed with the Old Smiddy. Did I mention that the food is totally amazing?

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, fantastic nights' sleep to be had in all of them, keep going back as...
