Living in Tain: The Local Area Guide

The oldest Royal Burgh in all of Scotland, the town of Tain has lasted for over a thousand years but has lost none of its rural charm. The town is bursting with history; from its role in preparation for D-Day, its sanctuary for the family of Robert the Bruce, to its being the birth and death place of Saint Duthac, an important figure in both Scotland's history and the founding of Tain. It boasts two of Scotland's finest fares, in its Glenmorangie distillery and the Tain golf course. Some say Scotland's favourite single malt since '83 is best enjoyed after a round at one of its finest links courses, designed by the grandfather of golf, 'Old Tom Morris'. Home also to Britain's deepest natural harbour, populated by local bottlenose dolphins, Tain enjoys both the famous highland air and a crisp ocean breeze. Tain is the central hub for much of its highland region and while it is a small town, it still thrives. It welcomes anyone who needs to escape the city smoke, with its views, beautiful countryside and storied history providing a dose of fresh air to any who might need it.

Demographics

Though it possesses all the joys of a highland town, Tain's population sits at 3,655. Many of its residents are families who've lived there for generations and Tain continues to maintain its indomitable Scottish roots. No more is that apparent than during its annual Highland games or when it hosts the yearly meeting of Clan Ross. Its industry is largely traditional, with its distillery, cheese makers and ceramics manufacturer - which is one of Scotland's largest. However, the burgeoning tourist industry has created a series of picturesque hotels and restaurants serving local and international fare, all catered for and run by local residents.

Education

Tain possesses a comprehensive school system, with several primary schools and a Royal Academy servicing the needs of older students. At this time, a proposal to amalgamate the schools into one new facility is being undertaken by the Scottish Education Ministry, assuring the parents of would-be scholars that the education of Tain's youth is firmly in the hearts and minds of its government. A 44 million pound project is planned, with the goal of a fully modernized school finished by 2020. The North Highland College, part of the University of the Highland and Islands, sits a mere 20 minutes away, ensuring all age groups are able to seek education in the Tain region, often an education that specializes in the unique culture and geology the Highlands has to offer. Tain also offers education in the Gaelic language, ensuring its local traditions are not only seen but heard as well.

Transport

Tain is easily accessible via the A9 motorway, sitting within an hour of Inverness and its airport. Coach services from Glasgow, Edinburgh and even as far as London, all run routes that lead to Tain, typically with a short break in Inverness. Local bus services in and around Tain are also offered, from companies such as Stagecoach. Hire car services available at Inverness Airport are also available, ensuring a multitude of methods to reach the highland town. Its local train station has existed since 1864 and continues services throughout Scotland to this day, with its connection to the Far North Line.

Amenities and shopping

Tain offers all the standard amenities of modern life though with far less of the bustle of the big city. The town itself offers a range of traditional goods, such as stoneware, pottery, hand carved wood trinkets and locally made crafts, along with the necessities of modern life, such as banking, hair salons, furniture and medical facilities. Its leisure facilities include a spa, the numerous local tours of the Highlands and its castles, as well as boat hire in the Tain harbour. High Street shopping is available in the nearby towns of Inverness and Sutherland, with centres that offer brands such as Next, Topshop and more.
