The Melville Monument stands overlooking the town of Comrie in Perth and Kinross. It commemorates the first Lord Melville, Henry Dundas, who was Chief Minister of Scotland at the time of William Pitt the Younger.
Built in 1811, the monument is 72ft in height and commands a great position on the peak of Dunmore at the mouth of the glen.
Reach Melville Monument by either taking a steep climb up from the layby at the top of the hill or opting for the more gentle route, about a mile further on. Once you’ve got to the top where the monument is, enjoy magnificent views of the whole of the surrounding countryside.
