Just around the corner from the award winning Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course you will find the Crannog Centre where on the 31st October hosts a night of Celtic Samhain, an event not to be missed. Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. This is an extremely popular event so don't miss out!
Castle Menzies also close where a number of paranormal encounters have been recorded in the castle. Reports of a man shouting near the Chief's bedroom, children are heard laughing and there is whistling, footsteps and a boy seen running down the main cellar. As is that is not scary enough three women thought to be Witches have been seen in the meat cellar.
Further on down the Loch side a short drive from the Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course you will find the village of Lawers, an area rich in romantic history and romantic traditions. There you will find the House of Lawers a former Laird’s House which was the last home of the Lady of Lawers who is remembered for her various mysterious prophecies.
She is said to have planted an ash tree at the north end of the church, with the warning that when it grew to the height of the little spire, the church would fall. Spookily, the church was so severely damaged in a the thunderstorm and the ash tree perished and the church was never used again.
She also warned that “A ship driven by smoke will sink in Loch Tay with great loss of life’ before the construction of steam ships - one of which did sink in the loch!!!!
