Tain has plenty to write home about. Crystal-clear northern air, for instance. We who live here tend to take it for granted. Then suddenly one of our visitors, who have come to escape the pace of city life, reminds us of Tain's healthy environment. Fresh-as-May mornings made for sleeping (and holiday appetites).
Long days designed for organised recreation…or for touring the beautiful countryside…or for finding your own peace of mind along a quiet beach. There's the tang of the sea, the call of a sea-bird in the summer twilight. These are extras which travel brochures don't always mention. You'll find them in Tain. There's a lot to write home about. And a lot more to find out about.
