Something for everyone
Whether your idea of adventure is watching a spectacular sunset from your balcony, or kayaking down the River Tay; Kenmore has something for everyone. Situated 40 miles from Perth and 7.5 miles from Aberfeldy, Taymouth Marina is secluded enough for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, without having to journey a great distance to get there.
There are a large number of walks in the Kenmore area. Here is a suggested walk from your doorstep at Taymouth Marina. A short walk along the south side of Loch Tay is Acharn Village. This short, robust route heads away from the loch, ascending through a wooden gorge to a small man made cavern known as the ‘Hermit’s Cave’ and reputed to have been visited by Robert Burns and William Wordsworth in days gone by. Follow the tunnel though the cave and enjoy the breath-taking view of one of Perthshire’s finest waterfalls, cascading from above as well as the view up Loch Tay to the mighty Ben Lawers. Exiting the cave, continue up the track to a viewing platform to get a closer view of the burn tumbling over sculpted rock. As this is a circular route, continue along the track to return down the other side and view the Falls of Acharn from a different.
