Kenmore Hotel


This evening, I am focusing on one of my favourite places -and hotels.

Kenmore is a small village located on the northern end of Loch Tay in Perthshire, Central Scotland. This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind in a semi-Highland setting.

The Kenmore Hotel is a very old hostelry which today offers good 3 star country accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere with open log fires, a good bar and a restaurant with stunning views over the River Tay. Even Scotland’s national poet, Rabbie Burns visited and left a poem inscribed on a wall in the hotel bar, not one his greatest compositions but, nevertheless, tangible evidence of the antiquity of the Kenmore Hotel.

In the past I have enjoyed wonderful breaks at Kenmore. Places to see and local activities include:

  • Fishing on the Tay (salmon and trout).
  • Boating on the Loch
  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Golf
  • Dipping into history- stone circles and recreated Crannog.
  • Photo trips.
  • Local tours to places like Killin (opposite end of the the loch), Fortingall (oldest tree),  Ben Lawers ( history and ecology), Aberfeldy, Dunkeld, Dewars Distillery and much more.

To sum up Kenmore is just off the main tourist routes whilst retaining many facilities for the tourist who wishes to keep active. Failing that, just hang around and unwind!

Elsewhere today, I have been busy as usual. This time with ‘pre-flight checks’ relative to upcoming batch of tours which will entail me undertaking three loops of Scotland and one of Ireland. Received three new enquiries: Hadrian’s Wall, Robert Burns and day tour from a cruise ship. Also, posted information on MacDougall family history to my separate Glasgow Ancestry blog.

Weather today in Glasgow has been fine and sunny. This pattern is forecast to hold for a few days, which is good.
