Located on the shores of Loch Tay Otters Holt is well placed to explore all the landmarks of Loch Tay and beyond.


Had a wonderful three days in the round house in Killin. We used it as a great base for exploring the local countryside. The property was amazing, super clean, bright, quiet and comfy. We used the kitchen each night to cook; and we were really impressed with just how well equipped the kitchen was. Hot tub was very much enjoyed each day! We enjoyed a walk in to Killin, and managed a 10k run in the local area. Pubs locally enjoyed within walking distance.


Otters Holt is an amazing place.

All of the furnishings and appliances are top quality. The location is certainly the highlight. Being surrounded by mountains and having the river right on your doorstep, you can't ask for a more peaceful setting.

Everything was so well explained prior to our visit that we didn't have any questions and the whole experience was hassle free.

We had such a wonderful visit, we didn't want to leave!

I would definitely recommend.


This house is a home and is a wonderful place to stay, relax and be a part of nature. Its so lovely to have the sound of the river passing by, and its so beautiful, clean and cosy with everything you need that you'll be sure to have a fabulous time. I'll definitely be back again!
