Dunkeld Family Gathering, Day One - Sunday 24 October

Check in time at the Royal Dunkeld Hotel was 2:00pm leaving plenty of time to freshen up and take a wee walk around Old Dunkeld with its little white houses, and Dunkeld Cathedral, the scene of a bloody battle during the Jacobite rising. Of particular interest was the old Telford Bridge which joins the previous separate towns of Dunkeld, and Birnam, the Birnam of MacBeth fame which is also famous for its association with Beatrix Potter.

At 7.30 pm there was a a half-hour Welcome Cocktail Party in the Residents Lounge of Royal Dunkeld Hotel followed by short speeches by David Arbuthnot from Dunkeld Archives and Catriona Cameron from the Dunkeld Tourist Association. The Gathering were then piped into dinner by Piper Andrew Coulter. During the Dinner a speech was given by Malcolm Dunkeld. After dinner, Andrew Coulter played a selection of pipe tunes and chatted with the guests.
