Dunkeld

An idyllic and traditional Scottish village lying on the banks of the picturesque River Tay. This highland retreat is an ideal spot to experience glorious Perthshire landscapes, intriguing glens and spectacular historical attractions. Visitors may also want to travel to the nearby local town of Blairgowrie with more stunning scenery, museums and golf clubs. There are also a number of Perthshire distilleries within easy reach, including Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery and The Lost Auchnagie Distillery - ideal for those who want to learn more about Scotland’s national drink and of course, sample a dram or two. The area provides visitors with easy access to the nation’s capital city of Edinburgh, as well as Glasgow and Inverness, plus the Highlands are right on your doorstep.

In and around Dunkeld

Dunkeld Cathedral

This historical building lies on the River Tay and is the feature point of Dunkeld, providing an awesome backdrop. A monastery once lay here, built by Celts in the year 730. Relics were later moved here from Iona due to Viking raids, making the area the centre of Christianity in Scotland. The architecture on display here is of Gothic and Norman origin, with the oldest parts of the building dating back to 1350. There is a museum to visit here, and guests can wander through the halls and admire this cathedral at their own leisure.
