A village in NW Stirling Council Area, Killin is situated at the west end of Loch Tay where it is joined by the River Dochart and the River Lochay. In 1694 Sir John Campbell of Glenorchy, 1st Earl of Breadalbane, erected a burgh of barony close to Finlarig Castle which takes its name from early associations with St Fingal. Killin is now a service centre for the surrounding rural community and a centre of tourism with hotels, sporting facilities and the Breadalbane Folklore Centre, a former mill reopened in 1994 as a visitor attraction. In 1995 a traditional music and dance festival was inaugurated here. At the south end of the village are the scenic Falls of Dochart and nearby is the Moirlanich Longhouse, a rare surviving example of the Scottish longhouse maintained by the National Trust for Scotland.
Killin has provided a location for several films, including The 39 Steps (1959), Casino Royale (1966), Kidnapped (1971) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975).
