Drumfinn Guest House of Killin, Scotland is now The Old Bank. The name may have changed but it's every bit as good as before...
And, it keeps getting upgrades. Over this past year the building got a new roof. And, there have been some new touches to some of the rooms as well. All to the good.
Mary and I have stayed with Jennie, Sootie and Alfie (Sootie and Alfie are the cats) twice now. Last summer about this same time we got to stay for five nights. Unfortunately we were on our way south this time, with only a few more days to our trip, and could only do two nights. We asked for the same room (No. 4) we had last year, as it was very comfortable with lots of space for us to do our half hour of morning yoga. The en-suite facilities were great.
Jennie fixes a wonderful "Full Scottish" and there are lots of extras like yogurts, cereals, juices, and different kinds of bread for toasting. After a breakfast like that you are indeed ready to hit the hiking trails or, like the two of us, head out for a day of searching for the area's ancient stone circles, standing stones and cup 'n' ring carved rock outcrops. In fact, right there in Killin, on the other side of the bridge and falls (Falls of Dochart), there's a beautiful stone circle called Kinnell of Killin, named after the farm on which the stones stand.
The whole Loch Tay area is gorgeous and one can easily spend one's whole holiday right there. The Old Bank....Comfortable rooms, great breakfasts, at least one of the cats (Sootie) may be around for petting purposes, and lots of countryside to explore during the day. Aand there are several possibilities for dinner. What more could you ask for? Enjoy!!
Thanks for such a nice visit, Jennie. Short but sweet. We'll let you know when we're coming through Killin again.
