Dunkeld

Towns & Villages

    The lovely village of Dunkeld sits on the banks of the River Tay.

    The majestic Dunkeld Cathedral dominates this picturesque Perthshire village.  Today, part ruin and part parish church, the cathedral features the tomb of the notorious 'Wolf of Badenoch'!  Nearby, walk along Atholl Street's variety of specialist shops or take a walk down by the river, which provides excellent views of Thomas Telford's Dunkeld Bridge.

    You can't miss the brightly coloured 'little houses' of Dunkeld which were built in the early 1700s. Restored to provide homes for local people, they are now in the care of the National Trust For Scotland (NTS). Another NTS property is the Ell Shop featuring the original 'ell' measure, just over a metre long, used for measuring cloth in days gone by.  Why not pick up some souvenirs whilst browsing!
