Today, we visited Birnam near to Dunkeld, this town is know well because William Shakespeare mentioned Birnam Wood in Macbeth: “I will not be afraid of death and bane till Birnam Forest come to Dunisname.” Macbeth, ActV, Scene III.

We walked along the River Tay, which is the longest river in Scotland, and is really beautiful. We encountered a Birnam Oak which immortalised in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.It is an ancient tree which has large branches. The tree is very ancient and it’s diameter extends to several meters.

The tree stands on the river bank behind the Birnam House Hotel and is worth a visit.
