Just half a mile from the Kenmore Hotel is Taymouth Castle and only a fifteen-minute drive away is Castle Menzies. Both castles offer an excellent day out and are a must-see attraction when staying at Kenmore Hotel and visiting the Perthshire area.
Taymouth Castle is an incredible neo-gothic style castle set in an expansive 450 acres of ground. The castle is lavish in décor where only the most exceptional craftsmanship was used. Construction of the castle began in 1806 and was completed by 1842, much to the exterior and interior décor from this time has been maintained including the renaissance woodwork and extravagant murals and paintings that were commissioned.
Taymouth Castle is a private residence but does offer events, visits and a fantastic golf course where you can play around with a backdrop of a beautiful castle and the stunning highlands behind. As well as golf, you can enjoy fishing in the grounds with two and a half miles of some of the finest salmon fishing in Scotland along the River Tay. For fly-fishing enthusiasts, Taymouth Castle is the place to visit.
