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... More

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. More

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.

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.
