Hotels in Dunkeld
Dunkeld, a delightful cathedral town, is well within reach of the dramatic mountains of the Scottish Highlands and is known for its towering trees.
This is the settlement where the King of Scotland emerged victorious against a group of Jacobite clans after the Battle of Dunkeld, which took place in 1689, when Dunkeld was vulnerable to attacks due to the fact that it had no town wall.
A captivating architectural masterpiece, Dunkeld Cathedral was completed by the turn of the 16th century, and is now home to a fascinating museum and Archive Room showcasing the building's memorabilia. The cathedral, which features a unique blend of Norman and Gothic architectural styles, replaced a much older former monastery that may have existed as early as the 6th century.
On the outskirts of the town is the scenic Craigvinean Forest, which is probably best known for The Hermitage. This National Trust-owned landmark is the site of the formidable Ossian's Hall of Mirrors, which dates back to the Georgian period and was probably the home of the distinguished narrator Ossian.
Further afield: a trip to the Highlands
The most spectacular and least spoilt wilderness in Britain, the Scottish Highlands includes the country's highest peak, Ben Nevis, which is 1,344m in elevation. The region is also home to the breathtaking former volcanic valley of Glen Coe and the scenic 23-mile long Loch Ness freshwater lake, famed for its legendary Loch Ness Monster.
