Things to do

Direction & FAQs

By car

From Killin
Drive east out of Killin on the A827. You will cross the single track Bridge of Lochay and then wind up through the woods. You will pass the hill road to Ben Lawers on your left and Kiltyrie Farmhouse B&B also on the left. The Big Shed is on your right about 2 miles from Kiltyrie. You'll see a Farm Shop sign and then a Big Shed sign - like the one below. You'll also see a small wooden bus shelter just after you turn off.

From Kenmore
Leave Kenmore heading west on the A827 on the north side of Loch Tay. You'll pass through Fearnan, then Lawers. The turning for The Big Shed is on your left, about 2 miles beyond the Ben Lawers Hotel. You'll see a Farm Shop sign and then a Big Shed sign - like the one below. You'll also see a small wooden bus shelter just after you turn off.

By public transport

There are train services to Crianlarich, Pitlochry and Stirling, that make getting into the general area quite easy, but there are very few options for the last few miles.

There are regular buses to:

  • Aberfeldy from Ballinluig, Pitlochry and Perth
  • Callendar and then Killin from Stirling
  • Crianlarich from Glasgow

The only public transport along the A827, where the Big Shed is situated, is the school bus to and from Aberfeldy on school days only. Since schools went back in August 2020, the bus is no longer available to the public. Hopefully this will change as the threat from COVID-19 fades.

Travelling from further away

The Big Shed is about 1 hour 30 minutes driving time from Edinburgh airport and 1 hour from Glasgow airport. On the drive from Edinburgh, you will see the huge sculptures of the Kelpies, then historic Stirling Castle, while the route from Glasgow airport is along the bonny banks of Loch Lomond.

The Big Shed lies at the very heart of rural Scotland, close to the main routes to both eastern and western rural Scotland with Inverness, Aberdeen, Ullapool and Mallaig to the north, and Girvan, Gretna, Jedburgh and Berwick-upon-Tweed to the south, all less than 3 hours drive away.

I think I'm there, but I can't see the Big Shed?

You can't see the Big Shed from the main road. Follow the track down past the Farmhouse to a yard edged by houses. In front of you is a building with a red roof (The Farm Shop) and there's a house with a blue door to your left. The track runs between the two. Follow it through the gate and you will see the Big Shed ahead of you on the right.

There are two car parks, a small one on your right just beside the Big Shed, with easy access into the building via a ramp. The larger car park is on the left just beyond the Big Shed.

Where can I book local accommodation?

You'll find excellent B&Bs, campsite and self-catering options all very close to the Big Shed.
