holiday and travel guide to the UK

The lovely village of Kenmore is found in a particularly picturesque setting on the banks of Loch Tay. With its whitewashed cottages, lakeside cafes and outdoor activities, it attracts a wide range of visitors.

Most visit for the beautiful scenery, with wooded Drummond Hill and the rugged Ben Lawers range of hills providing a wonderful backdrop to the lake itself. Kenmore also has a pretty stone bridge over the River Tay.

Taymouth Castle Golf Club is set in the former deer park of this splendid 19th century castle. The castle is in private hands and not currently open to the public, but its magnificent exterior can be admired from the course.

The Scottish Crannog centre explains how the people who made these ancient Celtic loch-dwellings actually lived. Visitors can enter a reconstructed thatched house, set in stilts in Loch Tay, and try their hand at some traditional crafts and skills.

For a new dimension in ancient history, visit the Fortingall yew just to the north of Kenmore. This tree is 5,000 years old and thought to be the oldest living thing on the planet.
