On our Scotland touring vacation, we stayed at several B&B's. all of which I would rate as good to excellent, but The Firs is the standout. The house is beautifully appointed and decorated, spacious and comfortable, with lovely grounds as well. The house is situated within easy walking distance of the village and castle grounds, as well as several local...

This is one of the best guest houses I have ever visited. Beautifully furnished, decorated, and maintained, the level of comfort and amenity surpasses all others in its star rating. The hosts Kirstie and Geoff offer a wonderfully warm welcome, and go out of their way to provide all the luxuries of home. The rooms are extremely comfortable and well-appointed,...

Stayed for 3 nights recently and were delighted by the warm welcome, wonderful attention, delicious breakfasts and beautiful room with en suite. Kirstie is a delightful hostess and Geoff's efforts in the background all made for a fabulous break in this beautiful part of the country. We certainly hope to return again and would highly recommend The Firs.

Booked The Firs for an impromptu stay to let our 3 young boys have a stay over somewhere after a play with friends locally. Kirstie was so friendly and accommodating and made us feel so at home. We stayed in a family room which was perfect for us and so so comfy. Coming downstairs in the morning the table was...

We have stayed here on several occasions and have always found The Firs to be first class and so very friendly. Food fantastic, rooms excellent, owners cannot do enough for you. Always long to go back and stay here for longer than two nights

Found this B&B by chance on the way back home. The welcome we got from Kirstie was wonderful - she couldn't have been nicer. Nothing was too much trouble and the rooms and breakfast were superb. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you so much for the great review a real boost towards the end of the season - and apologies for the slow acknowledgement - we have been away. The Firs is now closed and under snow! But we will re-open in March and look forward to another busy season and ( we hope!) more happy guests.

It’s not the first time that we have stayed at the Firs guest house, but given the warm, relaxing atmosphere created by the owners Geoff and Kirstie, we will undoubtedly be going back. They always seem to be updating and improving the accommodation in such a way that it feels like you are staying with them in their comfortable and...

Kirstie and Geoff are the consummate hosts, and we were made to feel right at home during our 4 night stay at the Firs. The rooms are delightfully decorated, very comfortable, and very well kept.

My wife and adult daughter stayed overnight in this B&B. We loved everything about it. Outstanding rooms, nicely furnished, nice location near the castle, great breakfast,and lovely owners. We strongly recommend it. It was the best of the half dozen of the B&Bs that we stayed in during our visit to Scotland.

We came to Blair Atholl for a wedding at Blair Castle. The Firs is on a side road but is signposted from the main road. We had a very pleasant stay for 2 nights in a large ground floor room - the owners were very nice and helpful and the room was very quiet. Breakfast was large and hearty but...
