Vic and Sue are warm and welcoming. Their location is great - it's a 19th century house on the end of the main street in Killin. This is within a block and a half of the Falls of Dochart, a beautiful rambling rapids in the center of town. Also within walking distance are several shops and dining options. nearby are a couple site not to miss, like Finlarig Castle Ruins. Within driving distance of Stirling, Callander, even the Trossachs and Loch Lomond.
Vic recommended the Old Flax Mill Carvery for dinner one night, and it was fantastic! You can get up to three courses - cold appetizers (pick and choose a little of each, if you wish), hot carvery meats (including local game), and homemade desserts. Everything was fantastic, including the highland cow in whiskey sauce.
The place was clean, spacious, and the upstairs rooms were all newly renovated. The shower is spacious. One bed in the family room leaned a little, but I fixed that with a blanket under the mattress on one side. There is a bit of a hike upstairs (three stories up) but it was worth it. Breakfasts were standard, and tasty.
