Located in the middle of a triangle made by Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Dunblane is a perfect Scottish location to visit. With road and rail access from all three cities it is easy to get to and full of interest. Pop in and see us when passing or plan a longer visit to take in our local attractions. A quiet walk by the river where you might catch the blue flash of a kingfisher or visit the ancient cathedral with its soaring stone arches and the oldest public library in Scotland, the Leighton. In here are books dating back many centuries often once owned and written in by their famous owners. Rumour has it one book was written in by Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen when on her death bed.
Inside or outside there is much to do in Dunblane. Get a hot pie from one of our butchers - both are prize winners. Their meat is amongst the best you will find anywhere. Wander round the churches of which there are many for such a small place. Visit our parks and open spaces: try skateboarding on our fantastic skatepark which took 10 years of hard work to get open and then slide down the tunnel slide to the swings. Or sit by the river and watch the wildlife. And when you want larger places then visit Stirling or hop on a train to Edinburgh or Glasgow, the shopping capital of Scotland. Lots to see and lots to do. Come and visit us.
