Killin Perthshire Information

Killin is a delightful highland village at the west end of Loch Tay in West Perthshire.

Falls of Dochart, Killin

It is delightfully situated beside the river Dochart close to its junction with the River Lochay and just a few hundred yards from the point at which it enters loch Tay and loses its identity to the Tay. The village has been the home of many ancient celtic tribes, saints and clans who have all left their mark on the village and its surroundings. Very little is known of the earliest inhabitants, but they haver left their mark in the form of cup and ring marked stones, stone axes at the Creag-na-Caillach axe factory, and crannogs - stilted dwellings in the loch. It is the largest and oldest of the many settlements in Breadalbane;'Braghaid Albainn', the High Country of Scotland. The name of the village comes from the Celtic 'Cill Fhinn', thought to be from 'fionn' white, but it could equally apply to an unrecorded saint, Fionn.
