Dunkeld Family Gathering, Day Two - Monday 25 October

Full Scottish Breakfast: After breakfast there was a Discussion Forum for or a couple of hours to discover if there were any family connections between the Dunkelds present at the First Dunkeld Family Gathering.

Dr Brian Thomson, from Scot Roots, an experienced genealogist with 20 years of researching Scottish local history and genealogy was present at the Forum.

After the most interesting discussion Forum we visited the Dunkeld Hermitage, and Ossian's Hall, a folly created by the Dukes of Atholl in the 18th Century built above a delightful waterfall on the River Braan. Around the Hermitage are some of the tallest trees in Britain. After a short stroll along the riverbank through woodlands with the sound of tumbling rapids in our ears we drove North to Loch Faskally, just outside of Pitlochry. A packed lunch was provided to be eaten in this beautiful setting.

After lunch we visited Edradour Distillery, Scotland’s smallest with a work force of three, situated just outside of Pitlochry. We toured the distilery and tasted this very special single malt. After Edradour we returned to Dunkeld for a free Whisky Tasting event in the Royal Dunkeld Hotel presented by Jeremy Law, a Dunkeld resident, and expert on Scottish Whisky. After dinner we attended an evening of Traditional Scottish Music in the Tap Inn in the village of Birnam, just across the Dunkeld Bridge.
