Taymouth Castle

Taymouth Castle is a stunning ‘Category A’ listed building in the Highlands of Scotland. Built in 1842, the castle is nestled into the heartland of the Grampian Mountains on the south bank of the River Tay.

There are various landmarks on the 450-acre site which include:

  • Rock Lodge – A ruined 19th-century circular tower, built around 1830.
  • Apollo’s Temple – A derelict temple believed to have housed a sculpture that dates back to the 1770s.
  • The Fort – a semi-circular folly.
  • Maxwell’s Temple – Built in 1830 as a tribute to Mary, Countess of Breadalbane.
  • A historic dairy made from quartz. Known as the ‘House that Sparkles’ it stands on Tom Mor in the castle’s grounds. The dairy was visited by Queen Victoria in 1842.
  • The Monument – a historical urn.
  • A ruined tower.

Also on the site, there is an 18 hole golf course which was laid in 1925.

The castle also boasts some of Scotland’s greatest salmon fishing opportunities over a two and a half mile distance throughout the estate on the River Tay. With the River Tay being one of the best in the UK and Europe for Atlantic salmon, it’s an angler's dream.

The castle itself is a thing of beauty and steeped in history. It’s ideal for people wishing to enjoy a nice relaxing walk while taking in the picturesque surroundings. If photography is your thing, this will really be the perfect opportunity.
