Nestled between the mountains and forests of Highlands Perthshire, Kenmore is a haven for tourists and day travelers.

Afternoon fishing at Loch Tay, hiking on Craig Ann Fodier, canoeing, water skiing, jet biking or golf at nearby Taymouth Castle are all activities that bring people to this picture postcard village.

Sadly, coming in mid-December meant it was freezing and raining down – so my partner Brooke and I sadly didn’t do any of that.

But in these classically Scottish situations, what could be better than resolving one of the roaring logfires at the Canmore Hotel with a drink to keep oneself away from the elements? Very Low.

Open fire is the theme of one of Scotland’s oldest inns, with no less than three in the Boers’ head bar and seating area, followed by two more quarters of the Game of Thrones style in the adjoining room.

The snow may have just fallen on the hills above Loch, but it was a winter wonderland inside the house, with the couple and their family and their dogs – all sheltered from the cold and the wet.

The Kenmore Hotel has a lot of history, as you do when you belong to 1572, but nothing is filled with this modern establishment, as the present property has made every effort to maintain its historical charm. Of

The bar, full of whiskey and gin from near and far, is the centerpiece of the place, providing a base for relaxing and spending time before retiring in the modern restaurant overlooking the Tay River.

The quality of Kenmore’s food is excellent, featuring local ingredients as well as all of Brasserie’s favorites.

Due to the presence of red deer in the country, deer sampling was avoided, which was cooked perfectly in red wine and juniper sauce, and was served with roasted tomatoes, giant mushrooms and delicious salads.

If games aren’t your thing, they offer lots of alternatives – enjoying my roasted salmon and white wine regatoni with my Pescateren dining partner but unable to finish given the portion size!

Beginners include deep-fried cabbage wings and shrimp and avocado tian for vegetarians and vegetarians.

People with sweet teeth are also not forgotten, with many delicious desserts served, including the popular sticky toffee pudding. I am!

Although we didn’t get to experience the large balcony, for the weather reasons mentioned earlier, you can imagine how pleasant it would be to sit in the sun and watch the river go by.

The surrounding trees and lawns are also calling for rest and if the weather has played a ball, look for it. The Kenmore Highlands are ideal for a food pit stop on a trip to Perthshire, but with 40 rooms it also provides a great base for exploring the area.

Rooms on offer range from cozy twins to Grandmaster Kings, as well as Terrace and Rabies Junior Suites.

The best base to discover

As a dog friendly hotel, each room is equipped with food and water bowls, blankets and even dog treats for those who decide to take their pets on vacation.

And while the mattresses enjoy luxury, they are also well cared for by humans – with spacious king-size beds and, in our room, a new looking, sleek bathroom.

Holidays in Scotland, especially in winter, cannot guarantee what season you are going to live in.

On a weekend you can take a walk in the sun, sheltered from the next snow.

But heading to the Canmore Hotel, no matter how cold, wet or miserable outside – you are assured of a warm welcome.

Rooms range from cozy twins to Grandmaster Kings, as well as Terrace and Rabies Junior Suites.
