What a beautiful town. They are very close to each other well I was so happy to stay there! First, I stayed at a lovely Hostel. Jessie Mac’s. My room was cosy and clean. Tea kettle, a quick snack upon arrival and my room was warm http://www.jessiemacs.co.uk/.
It was so nice there. The ladies in charge where friendly, welcoming and entertaining, I found out later that night that Brenda one of the owners, was playing at the local pub with the town’s musicians. It by far was the highlight of my trip. I had wanted to find a local pub, local food, local people and local music. I found all of that at http://www.thetaybankdunkeld.com/music/. I was in heaven. The beer was good, the music was awesome and the environment was just want I wanted!!! I recommend coming here if even in this lovely place. I thought I had some video, but alas I can’t find the darn thing!
I spent two days here and for sure need to go back. So much to see as far as hiking and long walks. I went to The Hermitage. https://www.nts.org.uk/visit/places/the-hermitage. Beautiful. To think that this place was intended originally the Dukes of Atholl in the 18th century! It truly was magical as the website suggests. Kept looking for wee folk.
I felt like I was in an enchanted forest. I walked from the hostel, let me remind you, I always wore my ass kicking boots, compression socks, wool socks and long johns under my clothes. Everyday!. What a California wimp. I did not want to get cold. I had my thin raincoat at all times and two layers of tops, in case of the weird chance that I could get warm. That only happened on the Isle of Skye. That day was really a warm day! Hiking through these beautiful woods was so peaceful, except for my heaving breathing, lol.
I recommend taking this hike. Apparently it is very popular. It was once of the places I researched and was so happy that I did.
