Fans of the wildly romantic Outlander series may recognise the Redcoats but the Battle of Killiecrankie took place 40 years earlier, in July 1689, than the action in Outlander, which is set in the 1730's.
This annual event is a colourful celebration of a turbulent time in Scottish history with horses, costumes, stalls and a Zip Wire!
The 2018 battle takes place on 28th and 29th July 2018, from 11am to 5pm, and you can read more about it on the Soldiers of Killiecrankie website
We booked a lodge a day before arrival as a "MINI Honeymoon" after our Wedding on Saturday. I had been looking at local hotels which were averaging around £200 for 2 nights, I then came across these lodges and thought why not! For an extra £100 we had the privacy of our own lodge, with self catering facilities which we used both nights to make dinner, along with a wood burning stove, tv, dvd player and of course the main feature... the HOT TUB! We would definitely say this stay was more than worth what we paid, it was lovely, kitted out with everything we needed. Yvonne came in not long after we arrived to show us everything and give us some information about the area etc which was most useful. If you are looking for a lovely break away , go ahead and book this up ..... its definitely worth it! laurennessilicious on Trip Advisor
I have just returned from my second stay at Kinnaird, last year myself and my husband stayed in the cottage and this year we stayed in one of the wooden lodges. We were greeted warmly by Andy who explained about the hot tub and wood burner and how to work the heating etc which was great. The lodge itself has everything and more that you would need for a relaxing stay here and was extremely comfortable. It was lovely on our last night that it snowed whilst we were in the hot tub and the log burner was lovely to come back into. Very private area and outstanding views. We walked down into Pitlochry on the Saturday morning which was lovely to wander in and out of the little gift shops. We visited the Moulin Inn for dinner on the Saturday night which has great food and good value for money and our initial plan was to go back down for dinner on the Sunday night also but to be honest the lodge was so comfortable we really just wanted to stay in and enjoy the views and luxury of our accomodation. Well done to Andy and Jane for yet again providing us with a wonderful weekend and lovely memories. Would not hesitate to book again. DebbieL987 Trip Advisor reviewer
