Discover Kenmore The Hidden Gem In Highland Perthshire
Imagine a small unspoiled picturesque story book village in the heart of Highland Perthshire - Think Kenmore!
For those of you who have not visited Kenmore you don't know what you are missing. Arriving from Aberfeldy just a short 6 miles away driving down the brae you get your first stunning glimpse of Loch Tay in front of you and Taymouth Castle to the left. Look to the distance and see the mighty summits Ben Lawers and its satellite Munros in the distance. Perfect for any Munro bagger!
It is extraordinarily beautiful ask anyone!!!! Many people visit for the first time and cannot believe such a wee place is hidden away within an hour and a half of Scotland's major cities.
Kenmore hosts the end of the River Tay and the beginning of Loch Tay it is your perfect get away. The River Tay is Scotland's longest at 119 miles and is one of the country’s five big Scottish salmon rivers and attracts a vast number of fisherman to the area.
Within the village itself you will find the heart of Kenmore is "The Square", a street lined with attractive mainly black and white buildings. The most imposing of these is the Kenmore Hotel. On the opposite side there is the village shop and post office. The eastern end of The Square is dominated by the elaborate stone gateway leading to the estate of Taymouth Castle and the beautiful parish church stands at the west end of the square.
Whilst discovering Kenmore why not stay at the award winning Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course and choose from one of our 43 luxury properties. Many equipped with log fires, saunas and hot tubs, the perfect way to relax.
