Local information about St. Fillans
St Fillans is a beautiful village in the central highlands of Scotland, in the district of Perth and Kinross. The picturesque setting is the first delight of every guest at the Four Seasons Hotel, which looks south-west down Loch Earn. Whether it is the fresh new colours of spring, the long days of summer, spectacular autumn sunsets or snow covered Bens of winter; natural beauty makes it an attractive place for residents and visitors alike.
The village takes its name from a 6th century Celtic missionary who preached Christianity to the Picts from Dundurn Hill, also known as St Fillan’s Hill. This site is highly valued today, land marking a rare example of a Pictish Fort.
Many tourists come to the village to play the St. Fillans Golf Club, a 9-hole course tucked away across the River Earn. Considering the imposing hills that surround the course, its terrain is surprisingly level, and is suitable for beginners, yet challenging to score well on for more experienced linksmen. All the while, the superb breathtaking scenery and green keeping keep players on the course as long as possible. Water sports, hill-walking, cycling and river and loch fishing are also popular activities with visitors.
