    Visited for the fireworks last new year & thought they were brilliant, well done to all those involved in organising the event. can anyone tell me if the event will be on this year as well?
    Also does anyone know when or if The Falls of Dochart Hotel is opening?

    Sounds like you had a ball last year Stotty I’m sure it was a great time to be had by all.

    I would love to be in Scotland for the festive season, but not possible at the moment.
    The middle of next year at this stage.

    Is the Falls of Dochart Hotel a new hotel? Excuse my ignorance, but It’s been a long time since I have been in Killin.

    Best wishes to all.

    Ronnie.

    A few years ago the Clachaig Hotel changed hands and was promptly renamed as “The Falls of Dochart Inn”. I’ve heard rumours about this being a previous long standing name for the Hotel but haven’t heard it from anybody reputable. Maybe somebody else can shed some light on auld previous names.

    As far as I’m aware, the Hogmanay fireworks are going ahead again this year as usual. More details will follow as they come out.

    As for the Clachaig, it has again changed guard with the Crows from Riverview taking over the establishment. Don’t know the exact details as for opening date etc but we’ll try to find out. It’ll be good to see it open again. I missed having a cold Summer pint by the Falls this year.

    Is this the pub that’s situated before you go over the bridge ? 34 years since I have been in Killin so trying to remember the location of all the places that we visited is really making me think.

    I remember that it was a white building and myself and my friends had a couple of pints there.

    We were under age at the time and as all young people do, we sweated to see if we would be served, once we were we thought that we were big men.

    Also remember a pub opposite Maclaren hall, but dont have any idea of the name, recall quite a large car park witch now seems a bit unusual for a small community like Killin.

    I loved my visits to Killin, we camped on the shores of Loch Tay and walked witch to me was a bushy track and over a small bridge into town.

    Happy memories.

    Ones that I will revisit……All the best….Ronnie.

    Thank’s for the information, as I said it’s hard to remember the names and places that you visit when you are young, but my visits to Killin alway’s stayed with me and many fond memories will be with me for life.

    My wife has never been to Scotland and only knows what I tell her about it, and that is mostly about Glasgow, where I grew up.

    I have also related my times in Killin and also Aberfoyle where I would go with my friends and not sure if we were Killin’s or Aberfoyles favourite visitors in those day’s as we were young and could get a bit loud, tho never got in any trouble.

    I intend to introduce my wife to Scotland in the middle of next year and a few day’s in Killin is top of the list, and a few pints in the company of the lovely people of Killin is something that I cant wait for.

    All the best to all. Bet it’s freezing over there, not really jelous of that one….Ronnie.

    Stayed in the village for New Year week last year and had a fantastic time (especially with the snow). So good, we are coming back again so its great to hear that the fireworks will be going ahead. We tried eating out on the dance night and found everything closed, as we didn’t know about it. Is this open only to local residents or can anyone join in?
