Where is Dunkeld Cathedral?
Dunkeld is a very small town - as this OS 1:50,000 map extract shows. The Cathedral is marked with the pink circle. The map shows the River Tay in blue, and the green road is the A9. You can also see the railway line (which runs from Kings Cross in London to Inverness) with Dunkeld and Birnam Station indicated by the red dot.
My lodge is where it says 'King's Seat' - the middle left edge of the map. Rather too grand for a deacon I feel - it would do nicely for Pope Benedict as a summer retreat! Located by the river with wooded hills on every side - it is like heaven on earth. I will post some photos of my lodge shortly - just in case the Vatican would like to check it out!
If you literally want a taste of Dunkeld then go to Dunkeld Smoked Salmon - it is delicious! For more general information on Dunkeld follow this link Visit Dunkeld.
I only hope that with all this publicity, Dunkeld doesn't end up being like Blackpool in 10 years time.
