Today we are sharing another instalment in our “Favourite Place in Scotland” series. One of our members, John Andrews, has kindly shared his thoughts on, and beautiful images of, Kenmore.  If you would like to send your own favourite place please email


My favourite place in Scotland is Kenmore, at the eastern end of Loch Tay – especially as seen from the two hills which flank it.

If you can take the trouble to follow a neither long, nor steep path to the summit of Creag an Fudhair, otherwise known as Kenmore Hill – on the southern side of the village, you will be rewarded with stunning views in several directions, firstly of extraordinary Taymouth Castle nestling in the valley to the east, then of the village directly below you and finally, best of all, over and along Loch Tay towards Ben Lawers and its companion hills.

Head in the opposite direction, ascending steadily through the woods on Drummond Hill, and you will discover a lofty view point from which the seemingly tiny buildings of the village and its surroundings have the appearance of an elaborately crafted model.
