is an ideal base location if you wish to
Tour Scotland or Tour Perthshire. Dunkeld, the fort of the Celts
played a vital role in the early history of Scotland, both as a
Royal and Religious centre. It was the original seat of the chief
bishop of the mysterious kingdom of the Picts;
Scotland's first king, Kenneth MacAlpin, built a stone church here
early in the 9th century to house the relics of St
Columba; and under King David I it was the centre of Christianity
in all of Scotland. The present building was constructed between 1315 and 1501. The cathedral was plundered by the Vikings, and vandalized
by the stern followers of the Reformation. Dunkeld
is a picturesque and delightful town which contains a wealth of
interest, and is an ideal base for walking,
and many other sporting
activities. Dunkeld November Photographs.
