Atholl Memorial Fountain

The Atholl Memorial Fountain was funded by public subscription and built in 1866 'to the memory of George Augustus Frederick John 6th Duke of Atholl'. The Duke had introduced a piped water supply to Dunkeld, prior to which all water had to be drawn from the River Tay - hence all the wynds leading to the water. The Fountain was designed by C S Robertson and erected on the site of the Market Cross.

Several changes are apparent over the years, but there is fine detail in the carvings, which include native animals and birds. Masonic symbols are also incorporated, the 6th Duke was Grand Master Mason of Scotland from 1843 until his death in 1864.
