    Nestled by the banks of the River Tay, amid stunning mountainous scenery, sits Dunkeld. You can almost feel the history in the atmosphere as you walk around what was once the ecclesiastical capital of Scotland.

    Around the year 700 followers of St Columba founded a monastery in Dunkeld. In 878 the bones of St Columba were moved here from Iona for safety and remained until 1560. The Cathedral, now standing on the site of the former monastery, was started in 1318 and completed in 1448. During the bloody time of the Reformation the Cathedral was destroyed, but partially re-roofed in 1600 when it became a kirk. In the wake of the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 most of the town was burned to ashes during fighting between Jacobite and Government forces. The Dukes of Atholl rebuilt Dunkeld in the 18-1900s.

    Dunkeld is a mini shopping paradise with a selection of specialist shops from antiques, kitchen, delicatessen to period living and a tiny National Trust shop tucked down at the bottom of the square. There is a contemporary art gallery in Atholl Street. Up on the brae is the Dunkeld Smokery where it is possible to buy locally caught smoked salmon.

    If you are looking for a bit of adventure there is 4x4 driving and a shooting school at the Dunkeld House Hotel or naelimits watersports with its office in the square.
