Kenmore Bridge Perthshire
Kenmore Bridge takes you across the River Tay at the foot of Loch Tay in the pretty Kenmore Village in Perthshire. The Kenmore Bridge dates back to 1774 and has multiple arches that rise to create a curve. Kenmore Bridge was designed by John Baxter.
The bridge crosses the Tay by the A827 between Killin and Aberfeldy. This is a very scenic drive which hugs along the northern shoreline of beautiful Loch Tay. Little has been done to change the bridge of the years. The road over the bridge is single track. The pretty village of Kenmore dates back to the 16th century and is a favourite stopover for travelers exploring beautiful Perthshire and Loch Tay.
Kenmore maybe a small village but it has another famous landmark. Commissioned in 1572 by Colin Campbell the privately owned hotel is actually reputed to be Scotland’s oldest hotel. This is deep within Rob Roy and Campbell country.
Being located south of the Grampian Mountains, there are many places to visit and things to do. Visit Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Aberfeldy. If you you like the great outdoors, take a hike up Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas. For spectacular scenery and views, one of the regions favourites is the “Queens View” looking over Loch Tummel. Cameras at the ready!!
Don’t forget to visit The Crannogs of Loch Tay, artificially created islands thought to have originated before 2000 BC.
