We choose thoughtfully sourced ingredients that include Scottish grown and harvested produce wherever possible.
We prefer to support local farmers and small businesses including the Taybank Growers Coop, Dunkeld Smoked Salmon, and ARAN Bakery as much as we can. The food scene in Dunkeld and Birnam is becoming a go-to for food lovers and we're proud to be part of the story.
All our dishes are made in house with a real love for what we do. Each cake is baked in our kitchen, and always with a selection of vegan and truly gluten-free treats that you would never know the difference between.
I have enjoyed taking part in events such as Scots Opera before we came to live in the area. Since then we have enjoyed both attending events and the splendid cafe In the foyer. It is a brilliant example of a local/regional community arts initiative and must not be allowed to falter.

A wonderful local facility, always welcoming and friendly. Me and my girls have so many happy memories of ballet classes and shows here - we need to keep the magic going!

Birnam Arts delivers a programme of monthly exhibitions showing work by artists at varying stages of their careers within both solo and group exhibitions.
We continually develop new opportunities to support the practice and development of Scottish based artists, whilst also bringing work that is inspiring, creative and different to the contemporary art scene in rural Perthshire.
A lovely welcome. Keep on flourishing.

Located upstairs of the original Victorian part of Birnam Arts, our Visual Arts and Performing Arts studios are where much of the creative magic at Birnam Arts takes place.
We really enjoy visiting the Arts Centre when we are walking in the Birnam area, and our family loved the Puppet show at Christmas.

Within this dedicated space celebrating Beatrix Potter, her much loved characters and historical ties to the area, there is something for both kids and adults alike.
Daily | 10:30 - 15:30
This is a lovely light and welcoming building with a cafe and library during the day and some really excellent concerts and shows of all genres mostly in the evening. It's an intimate space but with capacity for several hundred people and tends to be competitively priced. It relies on volunteer support and is an excellent community hub.
