Mains of Taymouth Country Estate and Golf Course (formerly known as Kenmore Golf Course) has been designed to be a challenge for all level of golfers. Beautiful panoramic views give this course a wide open feel, but don’t let this fool you – each hole will test your shot making ability! 

It is host to Kenmore Golf Club and Taymouth Castle Golf Club in addition to the many onsite guests, visitors and locals who play on a regular basis. It also hosts a Junior League budding professionals in the making coached by our very own professional Ryan Scott. Ryan not only offers coaching to our Juniors but for anyone who is interested in improving their technique.

Kenmore opened in 1992 on converted farmland in the heart of highland Perthshire by the banks of the Silvery Tay.  The design of the golf course was quite straightforward as the landscape was, almost unbelievably, perfect for a golf course. Last year we celebrated our 25th Anniversary and the sun shone beautifully for us.

The amenities at Kenmore are of a very high standard, so if you visit the course as part of a golfing break or longer golf holiday, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Superb hospitality awaits you at The Courtyard Bar & Restaurant and our stunning, award winning luxury holiday cottages, lodges and holiday homes here in Highland Perthshire provide the perfect accommodation for residential golf breaks and holidays.

As well as Mains of Taymouth Golf Club , Perthshire is home to Scotland’s best inland courses with the likes of Gleneagles and Rosemount within easy reach. 

Kenmore is central to the whole of Scotland so if you do wish to sample Championship courses or visit the Open, then St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Troon and Loch Lomond are all within easy stricking distance.

Imagine  a small unspoiled picturesque story book village in the heart of Highland Perthshire - Think Kenmore!

For those of you who have not visited Kenmore you don't know what you are missing. Arriving from Aberfeldy just a short 6 miles away driving down the brae you get your first stunning glimpse of Loch Tay in front of you and Taymouth Castle to the left. Look to the distance and see the mighty summits Ben Lawers and its satellite Munros in the distance. Perfect for any Munro bagger!

It is extraordinarily beautiful ask anyone!!!! Many people visit for the first time and cannot believe such a wee place is hidden away within an hour and a half of Scotland's major cities.

Kenmore hosts the end of the River Tay and the beginning of Loch Tay it is your perfect get away. The River Tay is Scotland's longest at 119 miles and is one of the country’s five big Scottish salmon rivers and attracts a vast number of fisherman to the area.

Within the village itself you will find the heart of Kenmore is "The Square", a street lined with attractive mainly black and white buildings. The most imposing of these is the Kenmore Hotel.  On the opposite side there is the village shop and post office. The eastern end of The Square is dominated by the elaborate stone gateway leading to the estate of Taymouth Castle and the beautiful parish church stands at the west end of the square.

Whilst discovering Kenmore why not stay at the award winning Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course and choose from one of our 43 luxury properties. Many equipped with log fires, saunas and hot tubs, the perfect way to relax.
