Nestling beneath thickly wooded hills alongside the River Tay, Dunkeld has an air of timeless tranquillity. In Cathedral Square and The Cross, the Trust has restored 20 houses, some dating from the rebuilding of the town after the Battle of Dunkeld in 1689.

Although these private homes aren't open to the public you are welcome at the Ell Shop, named after the weaver's measure on the wall outside.
