Rock Climbing / Abseiling
Dunkeld just 15mins north of Perth is one of our favorite locations. It is easily accessible from Edinburgh and Glasgow (under 1.5hrs drive). The crags (rock faces) are a just a few kilometres of the town itself. The climbs range from small to big and easy to hard. After climbing, if you like touristy things, the town is well worth a visit with lots of nice shops, riverside walks and great hospitality. For more information click here.
