Outdoor Activities

Dall Lodge Country House is surrounded by more then 20 Munros and many more Corbetts and smaller hills, perfect for walks and hikes for all ages and fitness levels. Discover remote glens and magical lochs, traditional villages and stunning nature and wildlife. Hire a boat, a canoe or a kayak to have a look at the ospreys fishing at Loch Tay and with some luck you might spot some other rare birds, beavers, otters or stags. Circle the loch with a hired bike or take a tour along the old railway line to Glen Ogle. Also find untouched boulders there, ideal for climbing and bouldering. And of course never forget to take your camera to capture all the magical moments! For a less adventurous day go and have fun on the tennis court or bowling green, just next door!

Fishing & Golfing

We would be delighted to organize a trip for you with our fabulous local ghillie, Grant Tigwell from "Loch Tay Fish `n`Trips". Go fishing for salmon, trout or pike- or just do a nice boat trip and wildlife tour around the loch. Nobody knows the loch and its shores better than Grant does! For more information also see: www.lochtayfishntrips.co.uk. For Grant`s fishing statistics see: http://fishpal.com/Scotland/Tay/FishnTrips/?dom=ST.....

Prefer golfing? The Killin Golf Club offers a well-maintained, beautiful and affordable 9-hole golf course (www.killingolfclub.co.uk). You will also find many well known golf courses nearby, for example at Kenmore, Aberfeldy, Pitlochry, Aberfoyle, and many more.

History

Scotland’s interesting (and violent) history is visible everywhere in and around Killin. Many Clans like the McNabbs (their clan graveyard is located here), the McGregors or the Campells made themselves at home here. The ruins of Finlarig Castle, built in the early 17th century by the 'Black' Duncan Campbell of Glenorchy, can still be viewed- including its beheading pit. The famous Rob Roy McGregor himself visited the castle in 1713 and his grave is just a short car drive away from Killin at Balquhidder. Not enough Scottish heroes yet? Visit the Wallace Monument near Stirling which honours William Wallace who led the battle of Stirling Bridge against the English, the Bannockburn battlefield where an evocative visitor centre tells the story of Robert Bruce’s famous victory, and Stirling Castle itself where Mary Queen of Scots was crowned in 1542! To go even further back in time, have a look at the amazing Crannog Centre near Kenmore and see how people used to live in the area 2`500 years ago! Or how about some mystery? Learn everything about the accurate prophecies of the "Lady of Lawers". And these are just a few ideas from many other possibilities!
