Taymouth Marina in Perthshire named Best Leisure Resort

Kenmore holiday and wellness resort Taymouth Marina has been crowned Best Leisure Resort at the 2019 Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards.

The awards, which now in their fourth year, celebrate the best in hospitality, activities and events within Scotland’s outdoor and leisure industries.

Family-owned Taymouth Marina, which is situated on the banks of Loch Tay in Perthshire, has been recognised as an outstanding leisure resort and was commended for providing guests with an excellent customer experience, as well as offering a range of wellness-focused services including natural therapies such as wild swimming, outdoor spa facilities and hiking.

The resort’s spa features a glass-panelled sauna, steam room, open air hot tub and a waterslide with direct access to Loch Tay. 

Visitors can also take part in several walking routes from the resort, including the Ben Lawers circuit, which features seven Munros.

The resort has also been shortlisted for The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards in the Rural Family Business of the Year Award category, with winners to be revealed on Wednesday, 4 December in Glasgow.

Co-founder Naomi Strickland said: “We are so proud to have received this accolade, particularly given the standard of this year’s finalists.

“I think this award is really testament to our commitment to providing our guests with a uniquely restorative retreat, as well as our drive to promote the area of Kenmore as a place where visitors can totally embrace Scottish nature in naturally outstanding surroundings.”

Taymouth Marina has recently undergone a period of significant investment to develop its spa facilities and self-catered accommodation offering.

Its upcoming breakwater development will enhance its current water sports amenities and is expected to attract thousands more visitors to Kenmore over the next three years, with the creation of 10 more full time jobs anticipated.
