Kirsty and Jeff make you very welcome. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast is wonderful with lots to choose from the menu. A great place to stay for exploring this part of Perthshire.

As a chef myself a breakfast of this standard is right up there with the best I have ever had. Will recommend you to anyone who is looking for accommodation in the...

As soon as you walk into The Firs, you are blanketed with the feeling of home. We arrived in the evening and were welcomed with a warm drink and a crackling fire.

Very many thanks for your review and your very kind words - we are glad that The Firs suited you so well. We are now closed for Winter, re-opening in mid-March 2017. Meantime we'll be carrying out our annual refurb, improvements and upgrades through the Winter months (and maybe a holiday or two) - Thanks again!!

Kirstie is the most wonderful host I have ever had the pleasure of staying with, and Geoff's breakfast cooking was amazing. The room was beautiful and cosy, and the fixtures and fittings lacked nothing. USB charge points in the main's socket were a neat touch. Coat Hangers!

HI, and very many thanks for the report - we are more than delighted and reassured that the wee details that we do work on don't go unnoticed. That said the Bed and the Breakfast are the "main events" so we are glad that they measure up too. You now know where we are - we close at the end...

Kirsty is the most charming host I've ever encountered at a B & B. She makes you feel like a treasured friend. The Firs is cosy and very well appointed. The room I had was smallish but nicely decorated and the en suite bathroom was great. Kirsty's breakfasts are scrummy!!

Hi, and thanks for remembering us - early May seems such a long time ago now! I'm very flattered - I do my best to settle everyone in and help their holiday along. So glad you have happy memories of your couple of nights here in our wee corner of the Highlands - best wishes!

The Firs are wonderful and caring hosts. The house is so tidy, comfy and sweet. The room I had was big enough for me and the breakfast was soooo delicious. I had two nights in Blair Atholl and it was very quiet and relaxing. Anytime again! Such a wonderful house and hosts.

Beautiful location to stay, this gorgeous house compliments the location in everyway.

We chose Blair Atholl as a stop en-route to our tour of the highlands and are glad we did. Having stayed several times in nearby Pitlochry, we decided on the much smaller village of Blair Atholl for a change. The Firs is very easy to find and located in a peaceful residential road but right next to stunning scenery. Our...

Very many thanks for your positive review and for staying with us - Blair Atholl (and The Firs!) seems to be a very popular stopping off point on the long road North, which is great for us. Your point regarding the shower is noted - we'll check it out- thanks for flagging it up.
