Dunkeld Cathedral, with its stunning riverside setting, was founded in the 13th century on the site of a former monastery. It is still the parish church and hosts concerts during the year. Dunkeld and neighbouring Birnam have a dynamic arts and music scene, with a diverse programme of theatre and music staged at the Birnam Arts Centre.

The surrounding area has many beautiful walks, great tracks for cyclists and plenty of fishing for anglers. Loch of the Lowes near Dunkeld is a designated wildlife reserve. Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club is one of the most picturesque in Perthshire. Indoor swimming pools can be found at the Dunkeld House Hotel and Erigmore Estate.
The nearby Hermitage and Tay Forest Park have some of Scotland’s tallest trees and offer far-reaching views to the Lochs and mountains of the Highlands.

Edinburgh and Glasgow are little more than an hour away by car. The train station at Birnam has regular services to Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness and a nightly sleeper train to London. Buses to state and independent schools all make stops in Dunkeld.
