Killin Hotel, Scotland – Traditional style Scottish Hotel

The Killin Hotel is an place for a getaway.   It’s in the middle of some stunning scenery, has a bar, restaurant and at £39 for 2 people B&B in an en-suite room on a Saturday night in Killin? Excellent!

Breakfast was pretty good and very filling (cereals, fruit, yoghurt, fry up, toast, jams and lots of teas).

There are a number of people complaining about the décor but our room was pretty modern and it was warm too, the en-suite wasn’t quite as nice and was very small but for £39 what do you expect – hot water came out the tap/shower so we were happy!

Room was up a few flights of stairs (small and old fashioned lift optional!) through a couple of doors with window looking out onto hills. Wall mounted TV in room. There’s a real fire in the bar and the table beside it can be booked for drinks/dinner/breakfast.

You could hear a mechanical noise coming from below the room at night, I don’t think this was ye olde lift as you could hear the different noise that it made when you were beside the lift.

The bar is a bit expensive but then £39 for room…(there are also a number of other pubs/hotels within walking distance).
The car park is at the front (good!) but it was a bit tight due to someone with a big car parking badly and taking up 2 – 3 spaces >:O (But obviously this wasn’t the hotel’s fault).

Overall I would happily stay here again. Hotel Deals

We love Billington’s.  Its a foodie tardis, with a cosy seating area at the front of the shop serving everything from brunch to cocktails (menu here) and they have cold meats, baking, chocolates, ice cream and a tempting selection of craft beers (even Mr Foodie finds beers here he hasn’t tried!)  speciality spirits and fine wines. In fact, it has everything you need.  Hence our love (and the staff are all lovely as well).

Today\’s prize is a meal for two at Bella Napoli

Located in the heart of Shawlands, Bella Napoli has been around forever, but it\’s not one of those jaded Italian restaurants. Owner Domenico obviously loves his bling and style. Have you seen their 24K Gold covered pizza oven?

The restaurant is in two parts with the front area containing cosy booths, bar area as well as take-away area. (try stopping yourself buying some of the cakes to take home!)
