Visit Birnam and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Birnam, Perth and Kinross. A village on the West bank of the Tay near the join of the River Braan, Birnam is linked to Dunkeld by a bridge built in 1809. It has the railway station for Dunkeld as well as the church of Little Dunkeld, in whose churchyard Neil Gow, the great Scottish fiddle-player, is buried.
The woods have remained a feature of the district since King Malcolm used them to attack Macbeth at Dunsinane, from which, although lying 14 miles away, Birnam Hill can be seen. On the hill itself are the ruins of a round fort, called Duncan's Camp, where King Duncan is alleged to have held his court.
Birnam Pass, on the Perth—Dunkeld road, is a narrow wooded route known as the Mouth of the Highlands. There is much picturesque scenery including Rumbling Bridge on the River Braan, which was painted by Millais.
