Perth and Perthshire

Named Scotland’s seventh city in 2012, Perth mixes gorgeous Scottish landscapes, fascinating historic attractions and a growing cultural scene, offering exciting events and exhibitions at the Perth Concert Hall and the Perth Museum and Art Gallery.

Delve into Scottish military history at the Black Watch Castle & Museum, which tells the story of an elite military regiment more than 300 years old. Just across the River Tay, marvel at the ornately decorated chambers of Scone Palace, where numerous Scottish monarchs were crowned.
Perthshire is famed for its pure waters, a vital ingredient of several Scottish drinks. Pay a trip to Inveralmond Brewery to see how they make their award-winning beers, or sample of a dram of single malt whisky at the Tullibardine Distillery.
Day Trips
The city also makes a great base for day trips around the region. Spend an afternoon in the charming town of Pitlochry, go walking around the lovely Tay Forest Park by Dunkeld, or visit the remarkable rooms and grounds of the impressive Blair Castle by Blair Atholl.
