The Falls of Dochart inn Killin Scotland
With its commanding roadside position at the “Gateway” to the Highland Village of Killin the Falls of Dochart inn, which overlooks the famous Falls,
is an historic and long established “watering hole” and place of escape and refuge, oozing character throughout. The appeal of the bar and restaurant
facilities have always been to the fore and the upgraded bedrooms bring the accommodation up to a “boutique” hotel standard.
With the inclusion/availability of the adjoining Falls Cottage (now used for self catering), plus the potential lodge developments to the rear, adds an
exciting facet to this whole attractive property.
Killin, located at the westerns end of beautiful Loch Tay, is an attractive highland village with a long history linking it to tourist and field sporting
pursuits. The area abounds with much for the visitor to enjoy and the ease of accessibility – whether the A827 linking to the A92 to the east; or the A82
to Scotland’s Central Belt to the south; or the A85 to Oban and the West Coast – is self evident from a glance at a road map.
Since purchasing the property in 2001 the sellers have carried out significant improvement and upgrading to the property creating an attractive
destination business of appeal to a wide cross section of customers and discerning clientele. The creation in 2016 of Falls Cottage to the self
catering market is complimented by the planned lodge development to the rear.
The availability of the Falls of Dochart inn and Falls Cottage (as a total whole package or in 2 Lots) offers new owners an excellent opportunity to
acquire an established and rewarding business.
