Kenmore

At the northeast end of Loch Tay is Kenmore, a neat little village of whitewashed cottages dominated by a huge archway which stands at the gateway to Taymouth Castle, built by the Campbells of Glenorchy in the early 19th century and now a very fine golf course and soon to be a "6" star hotel if the project ever gets off the ground.


Kenmore has a charming hotel and pub in the centre of the village and a new visitor centre stroke posh deli on the North side of the bridge which is expensive but serves delicious grub for a car journey. (Taymouth Courtyard).

Kenmore sits at the east end of Loch Tay and on a hot day you can sit beside the Loch on a stony beach and dip your toes in the waters. The kids will certainly enjoy the water which is as fresh as you can imagine and cold to boot.

There is a lot to do in the area (see activities) boats and bikes can be hired as well.
