View from the Heights of Dunkeld

The village of Dunkeld was an important ecclesiastical site from as early as the 9th century. It is said that the relics of St Columba were brought to Dunkeld by Kenneth mac Alpin (often referred to as the first King of Scotland). The earliest parts of the cathedral (on the right) date from the 13th century although most of the surviving structure dates from the 14th and 15th centuries. The illustration is from 'A Journey from Edinburgh through Parts of North Britain: containing Remarks of Scottish Landscape' by Alexander Campbell, London, 1802
