Glen Carra is located just two minutes' walk from the centre, on the outskirts of Dunkeld which is often referred to as one of Scotland's best kept secrets.

Thanks for the great review and there is plenty of snow around Dunkeld just now.....we even had some deer walking down the main street, worth watching on the BBC website!
