Dunkeld & Loch Tay

Just 12 miles west of Cateran Country lies Dunkeld, the first ecclesiastical centre of medieval Scotland. Its picturesque little houses radiate out from 12th-century Dunkeld Cathedral and the village is a well- known centre for folk music and specialty crafts.

The neighbouring village of Birnam is Victorian and was a favourite holiday place of Beatrix Potter, the creator of Peter Rabbit and others. Her story is told in the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Garden.

Loch Tay, Perthshire's largest loch, lies beyond Dunkeld through Strathbraan and Aberfeldy, which is a popular centre for adventure sports. Loch Tay is over 20 miles long and houses the remains of 18 Iron Age Crannogs or loch dwellings built on stilts, whose story is told in the Scottish Crannog Centre. You can visit more ancient history at the Fortingall Yew, a 3,000-year-old yew tree and the oldest living tree in Europe.

You can visit all of these attractions with less than and hours travel from Cateran Country.
