Dunkeld, Perth and Kinross. On the main road between Perth and Pitlochry, Dunkeld is a delightful little town on the River Tay with more than 1,000 years of recorded history. Its first monastery may have been founded before A.D. 700, when St Adamnan, the biographer of St Columba, established a settlement. Kenneth MacAlpine, who united the kingdoms of Picts and Scots in A.D. 844, made Dunkeld and Scone his joint capitals. The majestic medieval cathedral, of which substantial remains survive, took almost two centuries to build, starting with the choir in 1318 and reaching completion with the addition of the great North West tower in 1501. Only sixty years later it was reduced to roofless ruin in the heat of the Reformation. The town itself suffered badly in the Battle of Dunkeld (1689), which followed the rout of King William III's army by Claverhouse's Jacobite Highlanders at Killiecrankie. It still, however, retains something of the character of a cathedral precinct in the scale and plan of the little houses in High Street, the Cross, and Cathedral Street. Much has been done in recent years to preserve this character through an ambitious and comprehensive programme of restoration carried out by the National Trust for Scotland. Old houses have been brought up to modern living standards, gap sites have been filled by new buildings, and the properties let to local tenants to bring them back fully into the life of the town. An area of woodland, including Stanley Hill, behind the Cross, has been presented to the Trust to secure the attractive setting of the old part of the town. Rising behind the town are the wooded slopes of Newtyle, 996 ft high, and Craigiebarns, 900 ft; and across the river stand Craig Vinean, 1,247 ft. and Birnam Hill, 1,324 ft. There is superb fishing available on the Tay (spanned here by Thomas Telford's handsome bridge): there is a fascinating variety of local walks and touring possibilities; and the Festival Theatre at Pitlochry is within easy reach.
