Sitting to the north of Stirling on the A9, Dunblane is one of Scotlandís smallest cities. Founded in 602 AD by Saint Blain, the city is rich in history and has been shaped by religion and politics since its inception. It was elected a city in 1500 by King James VI, and post-Reformation, became a weaving town of some repute. Its tartan is considered the most complicated of the district tartans. Dunblane has a historic charm in a sleepy setting; the River Allan runs through the city and architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries survives to this day. Its most famous building is Dunblane Cathedral, which was completed in the thirteenth century and restored in 1893 by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson. The building is now owned by Historic Scotland. Leighton Library, completed in 1688, is the oldest purpose built library in Scotland and visitors can examine some of Scotlandís rarest books. Dunblane is embroidered into Scotlandís history, but it is the future of tennis that it is becoming fa-mous for, with Andrew and Jamie Murray hailing from the city. On the cusp of the Perthshire High-lands, Dunblane offers many scenic walks in unspoiled countryside and has plenty to enchant the visitor.
