Killin - Food / Drink / Transportation

I have a group of roughly 50-60 travelers making Killin our home base in March of 2019.  I realize when we arrive that we'll make up close to 10% of the town's population, so I'm hoping people might have insights on a few things.  Namely, availability and accessibility of pubs, restaurants, cabs, grocers and liquor stores.  Is this a situation where we should be stocking up on our way into town, or will the town have the supplies to take care of a group of this size?  Thank you!

    @IPC2019, I would contact the local stores & services themselves and place an extra order.
    Check out the webpage from Killin.
    Best regards

    @IPC2019 wow that's a big group.  Will you all be eating together or in groups?  For a small town Killin has some great places to eat.  I stay there quite regularly and love The Killin Hotel, The Falls of Dochart Inn, Bridge of Lochay Hotel and Capercaillie.  I've eaten and stayed at all of these places and liked them all.  Capercaillie is a red squirrel hot spot.  I see them every time I visit playing in the garden by the river.  There's a small supermarket in the village as well as a fee small shops so you'll be able to pick up supplies. 

    Don't miss the ancient burial ground of the Clan McNabb, Finlarig Castle, Fingal's Stone, Kinnell Stine Circle and Moirlanich Longhouse.  It's a fascinating little town with lots to see and do.  The Falls are stunning. 

    I'm a Scottish travel blogger and freelance writer with an extensive knowledge of travelling in Scotland.  I'm always on the road exploring my wonderful country.  I love remote places, history and the great outdoors.
