 Dunkeld Cathedral east window town side Strathtay Perthshire Scotland summer this beautiful building was started in the mid-13th Century, later suffered extreme damage and later restored in the 18th Century. It is situated on the banks of the River Tay which separates Dunkeld Town per se and Birnam on the far bank. Dunkeld was badly damaged during the Battle of Dunkeld in 1689 was later rebuilt in the 18th Century in a much ‘planned’ style. The location has a chequered and sometime violent history certainly recorded back to Pictish times around 820AD and long association with Christianity since its fledging beginnings in Scotland. Any location by a river lying in the lee of surrounding hills probably attracted habitation even in prehistoric times. It is very busy attractive town for visitors, extremely so during summer weekends, and lies conveniently close to the A9 route between Perth and northwards via Pitlochry into the Highlands.
