Local Events/Local History

The Highland Games in Killin, Perthshire
The Highland Games in Killin

During the summer, Killin has much to offer, including an Agricultural Show and Highland Games (one day only, in August), plus many other independent activities.

Amongst the many historic places to visit is Finlarig Castle, built in 1609 and former seat of the Campbells. The castle has a beheading pit where The Maiden - a guillotine - was used.

The area is steeped in history: at Balquhidder, Rob Roy spent his last days; at the Pass of Killiecrankie the English were defeated by the Jacobites under Bonnie Dundee in 1689; the Highland Folk Museum at Kingussie has a Hebridean blackhouse, water-powered clack mill and lots more to see.
