Dunblane

Stirling | Town | ★★

[Dunblane High Street]

Dunblane is an small, attractive town bisected by the Allan Water a few miles north of Stirling. The settlement grew up around Dunblane Cathedral, which still dominates the upper end of the High Street. Today it's well-known for its links to tennis star Andy Murray, who grew up in the town. The excellent town museum is a good place to start; there are also excellent riverside walks nearby.
