Aberfeldy

Aberfeldy is a small town built on the south side of the River Tay which is the United Kingdom’s longest river. The name Aberfeldy is derived from Abair Pheallaig ( from the mouth of the Pheallaig Burn) History The war of the Jacobites took place between 1715 and 1745 and the military roads of General Wade reached the area, and a bridge was designed and built by William Adam and opened in 1733 to cross the River Tay named Wades Bridge. Industry ranged from cotton weaving, milling in the late 1800s to the most recent distilling of whisky which started in the early 1900s and the only distillery now left in the town, is now home to Dewars World of Whisky which is open to visitors.
