Take a Pride in Perth & Kinross

Dunkeld & Birnam


The beautiful and historic communities of Dunkeld and Birnam are situated within the River Tay National Scenic Area and lie on opposite sides of the River Tay, 15 miles north of Perth. They are steeped in history, with Dunkeld Cathedral originally founded in the 9th century and remnants of the 'Birnam Wood' mentioned in Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Dunkeld & Birnam in Bloom was established in 1995 to care for the local environment. A small number of volunteers, with a great support network that includes the local school, promote awareness and action from planting and litter picks to enjoying home baking on fundraising ventures.
