Perth enjoys the best of city and country life, celebrating a history covering the best of 800 years while still embracing the lively 21st century of today.
Scone Palace lies on the outskirts of Perth and is a stunning example of a luxury country house. It’s often referred to as one of the most historically important places in Scotland, once being the very site where ancient kings of ‘Alba’ were crowned.
As many historical sites are within easy walking distance of each other, the rich heritage of Perth is quite easy to trace. You’ll see fine galleries and museums lining the streets with an excellent variety of shops and the two ‘Inches’ or public parks that border the western banks of the river.
Cross over the bridges of the River Tay and after only a short walk east you’ll stumble upon Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park; a beautiful woodland spanning across two miles and offering stunning views across the city and river below.
