WELCOME TO PERTH !


The city of Perth enjoys a beautiful position on the banks of the River Tay, just where it starts to widen on the last stages of its journey to the sea.

With a history that stretches back over 8,000 years, Perth has served as its country’s capital and has always been one of the most important political, judicial and commercial centres in Scotland. Forty two Kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny which was kept at Scone on the outskirts of Perth and Robert the Bruce, Oliver Cromwell and Bonnie Prince Charlie are just three of the famous historical figures who left their mark on the city.

Today, Perth is a bustling, cosmopolitan city with around 50,000 inhabitants. It acts as the county town for a wide agricultural hinterland and, as such, has an excellent choice of shops, cafes and restaurants. Indeed, it is recognised as one of Scotland’s premier culinary centres. Perth is also renowned for its parks and flowers and has won Britain in Bloom awards on numerous occasions, including the award of ‘Champion of Champions’. Perth has all the elements of a much larger city yet remains compact, accessible and historically fascinating. For history, scenery and choice, there are few places in Britain to match Perth.[/bold]
