Top Five Dunkeld Adventures

Top Five Dunkeld Adventures

Go Mountain Biking


Dunkeld and Birnam have rapidly becoming one of the main centres for Mountain Biking in Scotland. Home to a fully stocked shop, guided rides and full hire fleet, Progression Bikes should be your first point of call. With two Enduro events and a notorious round of the Scottish Downhill Championship, Dunkeld has plenty for racers and experts, but there are also plenty of incredible routes of lower grades.

Paddle on Clunie Loch


This wonderful calm stretch of water is home to resident ospreys, herons and a 15th century castle ruins on its own island. With easy access, this is a fantastic place to explore by Kayak, Canoe or Stand Up Paddleboard.

Paddling on the River Tay

Scotland's longest River, the Tay, passes through Dunkeld and it's neighbour across the River, Birnam. This is a particularly stunning section with some small rapids interspersed with views of the tight, steep banks of the Gorge. Historical sights abound including Dunkeld Cathedral and the Thomas Telford built bridge.
