Church
“Dunkeld cathedral is situated in beautiful ground with mature larch trees and yew. Inside the cathedral is a small exhibition covering the history of the local area. Out-with the cathedral grounds there is a nice walk along the river which into the banks is one of the many follies the Duke of Atholl had built around the area.”

“Is a beautiful old little town on the river Tay. Really easy to get in 30 min by train or by car. It has so much to offer. Fantastic pubs and restaurants, best bakery (Arran's Bakery) in Perthshire, beautiful scenery wherever you look and amazing walks with great scenery. There are hills all around you, the start of the Highlands. Best for cycling and downhill cycling. You can hire bikes there. Fantastic day out. Birnam is a 5 min walk away with the great Birnam institute all about Beatrix Potter and her Gardens. ”
