Dull, Bland and Boring might sound like a bad TripAdvisor review, but a Scottish village and its Australian and American counterparts are turning the
unexciting names to their advantage.
After forging a link with Boring, Oregon in 2012, Dull will welcome the Mayor of Bland Shire at a civic reception in Aberfeldy.
The Highland Perthshire hamlet has become a tourist attraction after a 10ft sign announcing the Boring pairing was erected in 2013.
Local councillor Ian Campbell is promising a far from dull reception for the mayor and his New South Wales delegation.
He said: "Hopefully we are going to put him in a Land Rover and whisk him up through Dull and take him up to the hills above, so he can get a good
view over the valley.
"There will be a lot of locals there to wish him well."
