Travel Tips for Dunkeld

Dunkeld- Ancient and Wonderful

by Asa111

"You might miss it...but don't."

It's easy to bypass Dunkeld if you are not specifically headed there. Located just off the A9 about 12 miles north of Perth you can't see it from the road. But if you take the extra turn you will be rewarded with a wonderful, picturesque and historic town situated on the banks of the Tay River.

Enter by crossing the excellent Telford Bridge spanning the Tay. Dunkeld's whitewashed stone buildings, which line the High Street and much of the town center, make quite an inviting picture.

If you take the first road to the left you will enter the heart of the city, called The Cross. Here you will find the Tourist Information Center.

A bit further along you will enter Cathedral Street leading to one of the oldest and most historic cathedrals in Scotland. It was to the original Culdee monastery situated on this site that the relics of St. Columba were brought from Iona by Kenneth Mac Alpin in 850AD to protect them from Viking raiders. The present cathedral, constructed between the 13th & 15th centuries, contains many red stones from the original monastery.

In the area you will find carved Pictish stones from the time when Dunkeld was the spiritual center of the Pictish world.
