Stanley Hill

Hills & Mountains

    Stanley Hill is an important man-made element of the designed landscape of Dunkeld Estate and it originally formed a decorative backdrop to an earlier residence of the Duke of Atholl.

    Also known as Schoochie Hill, this small, woodland park lies on the edge of the village of Dunkeld and consists of a landscaped and terraced mound created by the 2nd Duke of Atholl around 1730.

    There is an ice house built into one side of Stanley Hill and this was used as a latter day fridge/freezer to store meat and game for the Duke's table.

    Today the park is enjoyed as a quiet spot for picnics or just watching the world go by beneath the lovely old beech trees, holly and yew.
