Dunnett Related Places to Visit
in Scotland and Northern England

I have frequently been asked for recommendations for places to visit by Dunnett enthusiasts who are coming to Edinburgh on holiday, and these pages are intended to provide some ideas in this vein. As they've grown rather large I've now split them into more manageable parts.
Scotland is of course teeming with history and as well as places mentioned in the books there are many sights which you will no doubt want to see, which while not directly related to the books, are useful for general background to give you a feel for the period. While we can't possibly cover everything on one page (the history of central Edinburgh alone could fill many books, while the history of the Borders region is extremely complex) it should serve as a good basis for further research and for planning excursions.

The suggestions are split into 7 groups centred on Edinburgh

Edinburgh and nearby    West   North  South   East   The Borders   Orkney

Most of the photos are mine, some are courtesy of Ann MacMillan and some are taken from a Mercat title - Scotland: A Celebration. Click on them for larger versions or further pages.
