Stay in Dunkeld & Birnam

6B Cathedral Street

6B Cathedral Street

6B Cathedral Street lies within one of the most photographed streets in Scotland, it is living history, with antiques and generous creature comforts. A stroll away are eateries; tempting shops; regular musical evenings in Dunkeld’s famous music making Taybank Pub overlooking the River Tay; to many classical programes within the Cathedral; art galleries and year round Beatrix Potter exhibition. Above the front door is the last local marriage lintel, of 1737. Windows look out onto Water Wynd, used by medieval monks to haul up their boats. Owned by author Ann Lindsay, whose 19th century family photos and book jacket covers decorate walls.

It has seen 1000 years of history pass by its front door.
