Field Marshal George Wade PC considered this bridge over the River Tay to be his greatest accomplishment

The town is well-known for Wade’s Bridge, built in 1733, who considered this bridge to be his greatest accomplishment. A striking memorial to the soldiers of the Black Watch Regiment (the Royal Highlanders) overlooks Wade’s Bridge and the River Tay, while further east along the river another unique bridge, the Aberfeldy Footbridge, is constructed entirely of composite materials and is worth a short detour. Highland Safaris in Dull, about 6 km one way, offers bike hire and a great cafe.

An early morning start in the centre of Aberfeldy, which offers great places to eat and shop
