Enchanted Forest Dunkeld


Dunkeld Family Gathering, Day Four - Wed 27 October

Full Scottish Breakfast. This morning we explored Dunkeld Cathedral and the Archives of Dunkeld Cathedral, which were opened especially for the Dunkeld Family Gathering. After a lunch of soup and sandwiches at The Royal Dunkeld Hotel we drove East to visit Glamis Castle. The Castle was the childhood home of The Queen Mother and birthplace of Princess Margaret, it was also the legendary setting for Shakespeare's Macbeth. After Glamis we drove to Eassie to view the famous Pictish Stone. On the road back to our base in Dunkeld we stopped to view the famous Meikleour Beech Hedge. The Beech Hedge, 100ft high and 580yds long, forms eastern border of Marquis of Lansdowne's home, is said to be largest hedge of its kind in world.

A special Farewell Dinner followed where group members toasted the success of the first of many Dunkeld family gatherings. Following dinner the group visited the Enchanted forest, a spectacular journey of light and sound in the nearby forest at The Hermitage.
