NTS House Restoration qwe9627jhp 
 Dunkeld town street Scottish NTS Saltire Award Restored houses painted sunny one of the attractive aspects of this town 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 of which this Saltire Award winning restoration by the National Trust for Scotland illustrates in this street near the Cathedral. 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.
