Otters Holt is quite simply perfect. It set on the banks of a fast flowing river and the accommodation is just fantastic. There are ducks on the river who visit you frequently and we bought a big bag of bird seed for a pound in the village to feed them as bread is not good for them.You have everything you need here, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, good lounge areae 2 bedrooms, under floor heating and is immaculate. There are some shops close by if you want to prepare your own meals or you can dine in the hotel just across the road (literally 2 minutes walk) and if you tell them were you are staying you will get a discount (the 1st time we stayed we asked the hotel manager if we could have our breakfast there on our last morning which he kindly obliged us). This was our 2nd stay and this time we brought another couple who were equally as impressed. There are plenty of places to visit within reach such as Glencoe, Pitlochry, a deer park near Kenmore or you can walk in and around Killin itself,
Looking forward to going back.
Stayed at Otters holt for two nights in January 2018. Very lovely, modern, clean and spacious place to stay. Amazing views!! Hot tub was a nice way to relax and warm up after a cold walk. Straight across the road is the Lochay Hotel where we enjoyed a lovely meal and a few drinks and got 10% discount that is offered if you stay at otters Holt. Complimentary bottle of wine was a lovely added extra too
Absolutely loved this property! Will definitely return for a longer stay. Beautiful location. Beautifully set out. Everything you need. Walking distance to everything in town and easy access to a huge area of attractions! So peaceful and lovely!
Don't really know where to start but here we go... after a loooong drive we finally arrive at Otter's Holt and it WOWed us right away.
The position is strategic, as it is right on the river and the view is simply amazing. Once we opened the door the magic continued as we were in awe of the splendid room. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and a lovely welcome card. The room has a huge window and you can see the river running wild.
Bedrooms at a high standard extremely looked after and they both have en suites!
Kitchen has all and more to cook and there is a washing machine and a dishwasher!!
A Coop supermarket is nearby and so is the baker, chemist and some lovely shops.. ah and a fish and chips van!!
We didn't visit any of the pubs or restaurants nearby we always packed our snacks and lunches when we went out and cooked for our dinners.
The house is the perfect base to explore some of the most beautiful places.
Just down the road you will find the amazing Falls of Lockhart.
A visit to Lawers dam is a must, especially on a good day as the view is amazing. The dam co-exists with the surrounding Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve where you will find a variety of wild animals and millions of sheep!!
Many castles to visit, Edinburgh and Stirling Castle to name a couple.
Many activities for the most adventurous people.
At the end of the day a nice relaxing time in the hot tub.
If you are lucky enough with the weather and if you are a star enthusiast the sky will literally make your day. You can almost touch the Milky Way and identify many of the constellations, spot satellites and shooting stars.
We can highly recommend a stay at Otter's Holt and we will visit again hopefully soon!!
Thank you so much!!!
