Taymouth Marina

self catering accommodation in Scotland

Taymouth Marina offers a variety of luxury lodges that sit on the banks of the beautiful Loch Tay in the Scottish Highlands. Stunning 1-bed and 2-bed apartments, 2-bed and 3-bed terraced townhouses, and even a 6-person lochside cottage are available, all fully equipped for self-catering holidays and many with added comforts like private hot tubs, balconies and terraces with glorious views. If you want to bring the dog along, many of the lodges are also pet-friendly for a small additional fee.

The main attraction here is, of course, the Loch itself, and you’ll find a range of amenities near your accommodation that let you make the most of it. The newly built marina hosts all kinds of boating activities, including a Watersports and Activity Centre that’ll get you out on the water without delay. And where better to relax after a day of excitement than the Hot Box, one of the UK’s biggest saunas, with incredible views across the Loch?

Watersports & Activity Centre

Get out on the loch with ease, thanks to the range of watersport activities on offer at Taymouth Marina. Choose from canoes, kayaks, pedalos, water trampolines, stand-up paddle boards and motorboats. Catamarans are also available for qualified sailors.

The Hot Box

This is no ordinary sauna - The Hot Box is an aspen-lined lochside sauna with an incredible 40 foot long expanse of windows along its side. Heated by a giant wood burner, with a fire pit, lawn area and even an outdoor bar, you can savour the stunning views in serious style.

Ferryman's Inn

Sitting right alongside the loch, the charmingly rustic Ferryman's Inn is perfect for grabbing a refreshing drink or something to eat. Enjoy real ale, cocktails, or a glass or two of wine, and enjoy something from the locally sourced menu, including wood-fired pizzas and meat raclette.
