Lovely place to visit on a sunny day, sit by the river and watch the wildlife. Historic Cathedral is a good photo opportunity.

It's on the way into Dunkeld if you walk along the river from Dunkeld House Hotel.It's an old building with scaffolding inside it but the main towers are ok.

Very interesting inside. The main part is undergoing restoration so was closed and full of scaffolding. The grounds were interesting and its in the town centre.

Really nice to see the conservation work underway on the historic building. The place is well worth a visit and a pleasure to walk round.

Dropped in to say hello to the 'Wolf of Badenoch' who is buried there. He was a bit of a lad in his day.
