Scottish Saltire - St. Andrew's Cross Scotland from the Roadside... a journey round Scotland!

Northern Scotland


Dunkeld takes its name from the fort of the Celts and is located by the River Tay, to the north of Perth.

Dunkeld Cathedral was built between 1260 and 1500 and was partially destroyed around 1560. It suffered further damage in 1689 following the Battle of Killiecrankie. It is the burial place of Alexander Stewart, the brother of Robert III and better known as the Wolf of Badenoch.

Nearby Birnam Wood is where, according to Shakespeare, a figure appeared to prophesise the MacBeth's death. An oak is said to have been there since the bard's time.
