Dunkeld is known as ‘The Gateway to the Highlands’ as it lies very close to the Highland Boundary Fault, which marks the border with the Lowlands. Its imposing Cathedral, which was first constructed in 1260 and eventually completed in 1501, houses the tomb of the infamous ‘Wolf of Badenoch’, otherwise known as Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchanan, who earned his evil nickname after burning down the town of Elgin. Dunkeld also has a much more light-hearted monument in the form of a Beatrix Potter Exhibition Centre and Garden.
The famous children’s author used to spend a lot of time in the area and wrote her first book ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ during one of her frequent visits here. Peter Rabbit isn’t the only animal associated with Dunkeld, as the nearby Loch of the Lowes is home to numerous examples of local wildlife, including red squirrels, otters, beavers, ospreys and a variety of aquatic birds. The Loch is owned by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and has been classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its thriving animal population.
