DunkeldThe little town of Dunkeld is one of Perthshire's gems. Nestling beneath thickly-wooded hills, the centre of Dunkeld comprises neat late 17thC houses alongside the ancient cathedral. The oldest part of the mostly ruined cathedral dates from the late 13thC but there has been a monastry here since around 600, founded by either St Columba or Adamnan.
