Aberfeldy, PH15 2EY
Kenmore Village grew up around the strategically important ferry crossing where the river Tay leaves Loch Tay. In 1572 The Laird of the time Colin Campbell, sponsored the buildings of the inn adjacent to the ferry, as he wanted an ale house more conveniently situated for himself and his family. The Village was laid out in the C18th to the third Earl of Breadalbane's plan. In 1760 the distinctive cottages either side of the square were built and 14yrs later the Bridge over the Tay was built. The village retains this distinctive style of over 200yrs ago.
