A quick tour of tiny Kenmore

The tiny village of Kenmore--little more than the fancy domain of its castle, a church set in a bouquet of tombstones, and a line of humble houses--provided us with a fine dose of small town Scottish flavor. I'm traveling with our Scotland tour and we filled the town's creaky inn. As a tour organizer, my challenge is to see the big must-see sights in the city and then immerse our groups in the sleepy, more traditional, and--as is so often the case--more enchanting rural and village scene. Kenmore did exactly that for our tour group. Everyone loved it.
