BELL'S WYND

Records indicate that this was home to the Commercial Bank of Scotland, the King's Arms Tavern, the Highland Society and Children's Shelter.

After John Bell, a brewer from whom it took the name, the Wynd, came into possession of the Bishop of Dunkeld.

A related tale describes the experiences of George Gourley who was later to discover the premise for his ghostly encounters - a double murder committed as a crime of passion against an unfaithful wife and her lover.
