Dunblane

Explore The Cathedral town of Dunblane

The name Dunblane probably comes from 'dun' or stonghold of St Blane (an early 7th Century missionary). In the Middle Ages it was the centre of an extensive bishopric with a magnificent cathedral that still dominates the town today.

Dunblane is a very quaint small town. In addition to the stunning imposing cathedral there are many lovely shops and small restaurants and surrounded by beautiful countryside to take a long leisurely walk. The train station is ideally located in the heart of the town, with easy access to Stirling, Falkirk and Edinburgh.

We have put together a short trail with the assistance of the Dunblane Local History Society with special thanks to Janice Ainsley. Please see our 'Things to Do' section for the Dunblane Trail.
