Every year thousands of visitors enjoy the picturesque setting of Dunkeld Cathedral and take in its religious history.
Check out the museum, which was refurbished by the Friends of Dunkeld Cathedral in 1994. It's a permanent local history exhibition telling the history of the town and the redevelopment of the reformed church. Mention is made of the connection with the Atholl Family and also notable local people; Niel Gow, the fiddler, Sir Donald Currie the benefactor and Beatrice Potter, the famous children’s author who spent summer holidays in Dunkeld and Birnam and wrote the Story of Peter Rabbit there.
The Friends of the Cathedral voluntarily conduct guided tours of this wonderful building and museum throughout the year for visitors, community organisations and educational groups. The tour covers the history of the cathedral, its architectural details, its place in the community and some of the interesting monuments.
