Craig-y-barns dominates the landscape around the town of Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire, Scotland. It consists of a range of rugged heights, at no point reaching the altitude of a thousand feet, yet it possesses, though in miniature, all the attributes to be found in a mighty mountain range. It has streams, waterfalls and reedy turns, crags, heather and pines, caves, moors and mosses; it has squirrels, foxes and deer, song-birds, moor-birds and birds of prey. This great barrier protects Dunkeld from the biting North winds and forms a majestic background to a scene of sylvan and river beauty.
Craig-y-barns is cut into various peaks with gullies between, and from this some have derived its name, “A Chreag Bhearnach” (The serrated or jagged rock).
