Brief Introduction to the Kenmore Club
The club has a magnificent location on the banks of Loch Tay, close to the picturesque village of Kenmore.
It was originally the walled garden for the nearby Taymouth Castle, home of the Marquis of Breadalbane.
In the early 1980’s Elliot bought the site to build a small exclusive timeshare resort. It was originally planned to build the resort in two similar squares with the cottages constructed in the same original style of the nearby village It included a swimming pool, tennis court and children’s play ground, and restaurant close by to Reception.
An additional number of units was added at the east end of the resort with some smaller apartments, but still of high quality, and used mostly by the Points owners or for rental.
Each Cottage provides for six people, with two bedrooms downstairs and two bathrooms.
Upstairs there is a large lounge with comfortable chairs, TV etc. and a large put-up bed. Next to that there is a well equipped kitchen and dining area. There is a washing machine and drying area downstairs.
The cottages have been built in the unique style of Kenmore village with balconies and pine supports. There are well tended gardens in all the areas and the walls of the old garden have been maintained with unusual gates
The resort is surprisingly quiet during the day with most families finding more than enough in the area to occupy them for the holiday. For the active there is a wide choice with a superb 18-hole golf course only 10 minutes away and a 9-hole one only 5 minutes away. Gleneagles is an hour away. There is sailing, canoeing and fishing readily available on the Loch, while for the walker/climber there are 5 “Munroes” – mountains over 3,000ft’- on Ben Lawers and more challenging at Glencoe where there is the Ice centre at Kinlochleven. For the less active Pitlochry offers an excellent theatre with a good repertoire season of plays and there is an excellent art gallery in nearby Aberfeldy. The explorer has a full range of Scottish scenery, whether by car, by ship or even by train, with trips to Fort William and Mull, and a rewarding experience on a Sea Safari to see whales, dolphins and the awesome whirlpool of Corrievrechan.
Shopping and Eating Out
Within the village there is a good small store for newspapers and baking, while there is an upmarket shop immediately across the road. The restaurant on the resort has an excellent first class reputation as does the restaurant across the road and in the nearby Kenmore Hotel while there are a number of quality eateries within a few miles. Good shopping is available in Aberfeldy and in the up-market House of Bruar, known as the Harrods of the North in Blair Atholl, and an excellent choice of wines can be bought at the nearby House of Menzies.
