Perth & Kinross | Town | ★★


A bustling town on the upper reaches of the River Tay, Aberfeldy has many ingredients for a short countryside holiday destination. Many of the local attractions are water-related: this stretch of the Tay is well known for white-water rafting, while many neighboring burns sport impressive waterfalls after heavy rain or snowmelt - the Birks of Aberfeldy is the closest example, championed by Robert Burns and easily reachable on foot from the middle of town. Local spring water also helped kick-start Aberfeldy's whisky distilling traditions, which continue just up the road at Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery. The very centre perhaps lacks an "X-factor" - not helped by the main road running diagonally across the middle of the town square - but the variety of surrounding sights more than make up for this. The attractions continue across the 18th century river bridge - check out the full list below.
