Reviewed 6 September 2013

Everything here, well-equipped rooms,satisfying breakfasts and location are what you need. Geoff and Kirstie never flap and nothing interferes with your stay. A lovely house, quiet, easy access to the main road and mainline railway, the hills, lochs ,walks, bikerides, and all the Highlands have to offer. Well used too by Europeans/Americans , childfriendly, and the welcome is never synthetic.

Room Tip: Just discuss with Geoff or Kirstie and you will be looked after

Very welcoming. Kirstie is a delightful host and even phoned an emergency order for us to the local chippie following our late arrival. We had two separate nights with an intervening backpacking trip in the hills to visit some midges. Our first room was comfortable but a little small but we were royally upgraded on our return to a larger and equally nice ground floor room. The breakfast was excellent - good ingredients and cooked to perfection. All in all an extremely pleasant stay and highly recommended.

Really enjoyed our stay at The Firs Guesthouse at Blair Athol. Easy to find, well signposted and run buy a lovely couple. Vote from the family - exceptional hosts and loved the color coordination and personal touches. Really helpful and informative about local attractions.

Room Tip: Cottage was great for our noisy bunch.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Lovely decorated rooms, tidy and comfortable bathrooms, great lounge and full scottish breakfast in the conservatory - our family was really delighted :-)
Now we are back in Germany and my mum keeps talking about the nice smell of the bedlinen and towels.
Thank you, Kirstie and Geoff, for your kind hospitality - we surely will come back!

We stayed for 3nts and had a wonderful stay, its peaceful and relaxing - exactly what you need in the beautiful area of Blair Atholl. Our upgraded room was bright, airy and very clean. Breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. The hosts are very welcoming and we will definitely return.

Used this ony LEJOG, A lovely house with a nice shared living room to use! I booked an early breakfast due to the ride ahead, and was pleasantly pleased without contents. Host gave me excellent advice re where to eat and go for a drink. Overall very pleased with this as a B and B and an ideal stop of between Perth and Aviemore by bike!

Fab spacious ensuite bedrooms in a big country house set in beautiful surroundings. We've stayed at The Firs a number of times now and it never disappoints. The hosts made us feel extremely welcome and were always on hand if we needed them. Very impressed with breakfast, the Scotch Bonnet being my personal favourite. Lots of places to visit close by, including Blair Castle. The free wi-fi was an added bonus and came in really handy. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending The Firs to family and friends.
