As we begin to dream of being able to travel again I am looking ahead to a special trip from Canada to Scotland with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters who, next spring, will be 4-1/2 & 1-1/2.
Killin is within the area I'm exploring to find accommodation and would appreciate any comments from those read this who live there or know the village well. Killin is part of "family legend" as we lived there for a short time in the mid-fifties. Throughout my growing up (in NE England) Killin was always spoken about with great reverence! I have visited Killin a couple of times in the last 20 years but never with two young children. So my question is concerning what is available in terms of children's entertainment and activities beyond the obvious one which we'll all enjoy - exploring the beautiful countryside the like of which they'll have never seen before!
Thanks for reading!

There is a play park and massive field for football

Cycle / kayak hire. Golfing, tennis, lots of beautiful walks, Paddle boarding 7 miles out at Loch Tay highland lodges and more I’m sure!! Enjoy.

There's also Highland Safaris near Aberfeldy www.highlandsafaris.net/ and Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre near Comrie which is a great day out www.auchingarrich.co.uk/

At their age the park will be great. Make sandcastles at the head of the loch, catch minnows or tadpoles, dam a burn, jump in puddles( bound to be some!) hunt for mini beasts. They won’t have an appreciation of being in another continent, just that being away from home is fun too.

Jill Anderson mini beasts??

Easier to say than invertebrates (although some invertebrates aren't that mini...) Follow the link... www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/z9fkwmn

The school has as my two grand children did have two years ago.They have move .Green team was outdoor looking what is in grass.Music playing.. Games.outside in a close area.

Not sure which MacNaughton brother - there were three of them in Duncroisk- Donald, Duncan and John, they were first cousins of my father and Ella Wallkers Uncles. Duncan, John and their sister Maggie retired to Drumbuie where Ella looked after them in their later years.

How beautiful

That's beautiful

It's between stations, but the guard is going walkabout. Anyone know why it would be stationary there?

It would sit down from the Station to allow the visitors a few hours in Killin and allow the Pug to carry out its usual connection duties to Killin Junction, It would come up into Killin Sation to reload the visitors when the Pug was up at the Junction and the necessary shunting could be carried out to get the diesel back onto the mainline,

BR ran excursions in the early 60's called the Six Lochs Diesel Land Cruise. The 'Six Lochs Diesel Land Cruise' actually ran every summer Sunday that year, running from Glasgow to Callander, Killin and Crainlarich, although the sets used week to week could vary. The fare of 10/- made it very popular, and even in bad weather two trains were required.

Wow. So amazing to see this. I walk this so often and have done for many years. And to see this really brings it alive. Can you imagine how popular this would be now.

That’s not the Peter Ross in Killin we remember. He drove the van for Bob McGregor!

It doesn’t look like Peter Ross.

I read on here there were two Peter Rosses & the one we knew didn’t make the fly it was the other one that made the Peter Ross fly Peter Ross & Lizzie Frazer had the fruit 🍇 & veg shop where Bredalbin house is now

Kay Riddell Google "Peter Ross the Barber of Killin" and look at "Killin News" issue 30, January 1966. Page 8. Excellent article probably by Sinclair Aitken or Alan Walker.

Ali Jenkinson I know a good story about Tig, maybe Big Bill or Andy Curtis and a dead sheep. You should ask him 🤣🤣
