Tour Birnam

Birnam and its larger sister town Dunkeld sit on opposite banks of the fast-flowing waters of the River Tay in Perthshire. Linking the two towns is Thomas Telford's stone bridge. On one of her regular holidays to Birnam, Beatrix Potter wrote the famous letter which was to be published worldwide as "The Tale Of Peter Rabbit". In Birnam's Beatrix Potter Garden, you'll meet many of her favourite characters.

This is an especially beautiful part of Perthshire with some lovely walks by the River Tay, alongside the River Braan to the Hermitage or for the more energetic, a climb up Birnam Hill through the woods that were, as we all know, to spell doom for Macbeth. In the two towns and surrounding countryside, there is no end to the wealth of interest around Birnam.

Birnam is easily reached from Perth:
