River Tay, Dunkeld, Perthshire

The Story Behind the Image - River Tay, Dunkeld, Perthshire

The iconic 18th-century bridge designed by Thomas Telford for the Duke of Atholl spans the peaceful River Tay and Dunkeld, Perthshire.

A picnic table stands on the north bank of the river looking towards the bridge. I came across this view by complete accident.

I came to Dunkeld in the early morning to photograph the Atholl Memorial Fountain and Dunkeld Cathedral. As I crossed the bridge I saw a sign for public parking so I turned onto Boat Road, which runs parallel to the River Tay, and found a parking area with spaces.

As I was walking from the car park towards the Cathedral I passed a small public space with a lawn leading down to the river bank. On instinct, I walked down to the river and discovered this lovely view of the bridge.
