This pleasant little town is rightly famous for its two malt whisky distilleries, festival theatre and wide choice of shopping.


Noted for its scenery and hydro-electric dam with salmon ladder. Here the salmon don''t actually jump up the ladder but swim through interconnecting pipes. An observation chamber allows visitors to watch the salmon underwater through a large plate glass window.

The present town is relatively new by Perthshire standards dating mainly from the mid 19thC. Queen Victoria visited in 1844 and it quickly grew into the tourist town of today.
