To DoActivities and Attractions in Highland Perthshire

 

In the Area
Perthshire has a wide range of cultural, sporting and leisure activities within easy reach and our location is an ideal base for touring (Perth, Pitlochry, Braemar, House of Bruar, Blair Atholl Castle, Aberfeldy, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon).

Out and About in Dunkeld
Dunkeld itself was proclaimed the first ecclesiastical capital of Scotland by Scotland's first King, Kenneth MacAlpin. The majestic ruin of the cathedral dominates the town. The Atholl Memorial fountain was erected in 1866 by public subscription in memory of the 6th Duke of Atholl.

Activities and Attractions in Highland PerthshireFrom here Cathedral Street leads to Dunkeld Cathedral, standing idyllically amidst lawns that sweep down to the River Tay. Today part ruin and part parish church, the cathedral features the tomb of the notorious 'Wolf of Badenoch'.

The brightly coloured 'little houses' of Dunkeld 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.

A walk along Atholl Street's variety of specialist shops will prove fascinating. For example, Jeremy Law of Scotland is a deer skin leather moccasin shoes, slippers and gloves shop only a few hundred yards from us.

A riverside path provides excellent views of Thomas Telford's Dunkeld Bridge plus a walk past the old oak trees.

We co-ordinate with group organizers and individuals from around the world offering competitive accommodation rates, packed lunches, special dinner rates, secure cycling facilities, and of course the best hospitality you will find in Dunkeld.
