Tour Scotland Travel Video Winter Road Trip Drive From Pitkeathly Wells To Dunning Perthshire

Tour Scotland travel video Blog of a Winter morning road trip drive, with music, from the hamlet of Pitkeathly Wells, then West on the B935 and B934 roads on ancestry visit to Dunning, Perthshire, Scotland. Wells in the area produced the Pitkeathly mineral waters, which were drunk and used as baths from 1785 to 1949. They were once recommended their use in curing hiccups, cholera, and epilepsy. The B935 is a short B road in South Perthshire. For over a mile, the road heads due west, with only the slightest of bends to subtly change the course before it enters Forgandenny. All the way, the road passes between high hedges and trees hiding the large arable fields on either side. The village of Forgandenny is a rather strung out place, with fields and woodlands breaking in between the houses. On the north side of the road this is the land of the private Strathallan School. Then, at the western end of the village, a much sharper set of bends sends the road south westwards and then north before returning to its westerly route. Between the bends, the road is again almost arrow straight. The road then seems to take on a more natural feel as it goes down the hill into the small village of Forteviot. Beyond the village, the road meets the B934 road next to the level crossing. After driving West on the B934 road we end up in Thorntree Square in Dunning.
