My Husband and I stayed at the Mains of Taymouth Estate for our Honeymoon. We had the cottage called The Bothy and weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. The interior of the cottage was to a high standard apart from a few bits of wear and tear. The hot tub was fantastic and it was a relaxing break, we would recommend and are already thinking of returning next year. The cottage shop was lovely for a little treat too and the restaurant was also relaxing but not too friendly...

We have stayed at Mains of Taymouth on a few occasions now and absolutely love going back. What an amazing area of Scotland this is and to find such high quality accommodation in this wonderful little haven is fantastic. The quality of the lodges is definitely 5* and the décor really befitting of the area - leather, natural wood and tweed curtains. We have stayed both in the Bell Tower and at no 6 the Maxwells - both different types of accommodation with the Bell Tower being part of the original estate therefore stone built and with a wood burning fire whereas the Maxwells is a new build clad in a wonderful wood which will weather with time. Both accommodations were spotlessly clean and the furniture and fittings were all good quality and in good repair. On arrival (usually in the evenings), the houses were lit up and warm which is so welcoming
The Staff at reception and in the Courtyard are always so friendly and attentive - nothing seems to be a problem for them.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and we are so looking forward to our trip up for Hogmany and the gala dinner.

Room Tip: The position of 6 the Maxwells was good as there was a fairly open aspect in front of you.

This time we stayed at Mains Park Court, and it was excellent.
It is very spacious and the bedrooms are all lovely. The kitchen was large and well laid out.
The lounge was easily big enough for all of us, and the pool table came in handy.
The wifi was unfortunately pretty much non existent (which isn't too awful if you're looking to get away from things).
The hot-tub was (as always) well used and great fun. This one had a sauna too!
A special mention for Nicki though. She organised a beautiful cake for the girls whose birthday it was, and helium ballons, and had them laid out in the lodge when we arrived - so helpful, and soooo friendly when sorting things.

Room Tip: We've tried Inchadney, Easter Bruadair and Mains Park Court and loved all of them

This was our second visit to Mains of Taymouth having had a most enjoyable holiday last year (2012). The weather was not as kind to us this year, however it did not detract from the fabulous venue.
With 3 generations of family (6 adults, 3 children) staying at Easter Bruadair, the accomodation was excellent, with 5 bedrooms a large lounge/dining area and a beautifully appointed kitchen. The games room, with pool table, was well used, however the Hot tub was the most popular and well used facility of all.
You will not find this a cheap venue but then again this is no ordinary house, this is luxury 5 star accomodation.
The onsite store and restaurant/bar are excellent facilities with friendly staff and lovely food whether eating at the restaurant or buying from the store.
For golfers there is an enjoyable and not too challenging golf course. Ideal as a resort course for the experienced or the less experienced golfer.
You don't have to drive out to experience stunning scenery. It is there onsite with local walks offering wonderful scenery.
We enjoyed it so much that we are looking forward to seeing in the New Year at Mains when the family will be returning.
I can not recommend this place highly enough. It is such a peaceful and relaxing place to holiday I hope to return on many more occasions.

Thank you for a fabulous review of Easter Bruadair, the facilities at Mains of Taymouth and Kenmore itself. We like to think its rather special too and hope you will have an equally enjoyable stay at New Year. See you soon!

We had booked for a 2 night stay but extended it by another night when we saw the facilities. We were at Maxwells and had the most relaxing break despite the weather. Lovely walks in and around Kenmore, good food and very friendly staff. Well resourced shop on site too. The scenery was spectacular and we used it as a base to go and see a couple of shows in the Perthhire Amber festival. We plan to return next year for a longer break.
Our only negative comment apart from the previously mentioned wifi is the lack of privacy when you open the curtains with the accomodation opposite. It did not ruin our family weekend though

Just spent 2 nights in one of The Maxwell's. Perfect for two for a short break, didn't have to bring anything with us. Good golf, excellent massage in your own surroundings and least 4 eating and drinking establishments within no more than a 10 minute walk all good in different ways. Most comfy beds ever, wish it had been longer. Scenery wonderful at this time of year but can imagine the estate comes into it's own in the sunshine. Will be back.

This was our second visit to mains of Taymouth, staying in the Rivald 3 bedroom, the rooms were very nice the cottage was overall very good. This place is all about location location location so much o do if you like walking, cycling fishing and scenery, It's just a beautiful part of Scotland, you will really will enjoy the experience no matter what the weather, the courtyard restaurant is nice or you can try the kenmore hotel across the road. There is free WiFi in the bar area. there is supposed to be park wifi i did ask them the last time to fix this, it still is useless even standing net to the transmission pole in the rain with a brolly still could not get connected, come of guys get this simple thing sorted. This lets you down

This is a 5 star place to stay and well worth a visit.
