Welcome to Aberfeldy
Aberfeldy is a burgh in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, on the River Tay. A small market town, Aberfeldy is located in Highland Perthshire. It is famous for being mentioned in the poem The Birks Of Aberfeldy by Robert Burns.

Beyond its association with Burns, who mentioned Aberfeldy in his poem The Birks of Aberfeldy, the town is known for Wade’s Bridge, built in 1733 and designed by architect William Adam, father of the more famous Robert Adam. General George Wade considered this bridge to be his greatest accomplishment. Aberfeldy is also mentioned in the traditional “Loch Tay Boat Song”.
The town also includes a memorial to the Black Watch, an 9-hole golf course, a children’s park, and a town square that features stores, restaurants and art galleries. In 2002, Aberfeldy was granted Fairtrade Town status.
