With our breath taking scenery and wonderful walks who would want to leave their four legged companion at home? I know here at Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course, we would not. The majority of the staff here own at least one dog with some of the team owning three, so we know a thing or two about dogs!

Happy Holiday Dogs
We welcome all dogs, all breeds and all sizes on to the Estate. Many of our guests comment on how welcome they are made to feel. It starts with check-in, you are encouraged to bring your dog into Reception so we can all swoon over your precious friend. Then each dog receives their own welcome bag containing a map of walks, spare poo bags and a treat (and sometimes a goodie out of our secret stash!)

From then on it is Canine bliss all the way.
A quote from one of our guests:
“The accommodation is brilliant set in beautiful surroundings.  So very dog friendly; our spaniel was welcomed in the courtyard and was even allowed to join us on the golf course!  The walks around the area are amazing”.

We do however, appreciate not everyone is a dog lover. We have a selection of properties that are pet free.

Mains ofTaymouth has a fascinating history of its own.

Mains of Taymouth Farm Past
It was originally built as the Home Farm to Taymouth Castle which is located a mile away on the other side of the River Tay. Taymouth Castle was built on land originally where the first fortress of Balloch House once stood and was erected as the new home for the Campbell Clan of Glen Orchy. Over the centuries the Clan amassed land through feud and marriage and went on to be the largest, most successful Estate in Britain. 

The Estate Village, now Kenmore Village and Mains of Taymouth Home Farm, now Mains of Taymouth Country Estate and Golf Course were built at this time and ran as a successful businesses. They were sold at auction at the end of the first World War in 1922.
This is where we join the story. Mains of Taymouth was purchased by a gentleman builder by the name of Duncan Menzies from Glasgow for his son to provide a living as a successful dairy farm for the whole area.

4 generations of Menzies and the family involvement is still going strong. During this time the Farm developed, to include a popular caravan park with the addition of a shop and petrol pumps in the late 1950’s. The families dream of having a golf course became a reality when a Mains of Taymouth Golf Club opened in 1992 on former agricultural land. Meanwhile the reclaiming of the dilapidated farm buildings continued to create who we are now The prestigious award winning Mains of Taymouth with 43 properties the majority of which have the Scottish Tourist Board 5* accreditation.

The Mains of Taymouth Country Estate has come a long way throughout the last 100 years guided by the safe hands of the Menzies Clan. It continues to grow and evolve offering a tranquil holiday destination to enjoy the splendour and majesty of our beautiful location as did Queen Victoria who honeymooned at Taymouth Castle.

Why not come and visit and be part of the history?
