The best of Dunkeld
Sometimes you have high hopes of a place for photo opportunities - a 14th century cathedral beside a fast-flowing river, a 'lovely village of largely whitewashed shops, cottages and hotels' with 'a fascinating collection of shops' as the Undiscovered Scotland site describes it. Road signs point the way to Birnam, scene of 'though Birnam wood be come to Dunsinane' from Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'.
And out of all that I got - nutmeg graters. They were in the window of a 'fascinating shop' (read twee kitchenware for Aga cookers). But somehow I was so disconcerted to find myself a tourist in my own country that I couldn't take a photo of the obvious. We'll have to go back out of season.
