Mini guide to Perth

     

Once Scotland's capital city, Perth serves as a gateway to the Highlands and retains a beauty and air of prosperity in keeping with its former glory.

History lovers will be delighted with Perth. Not to be missed is Scone Palace, the original home of the Scone of Destiny where 42 of Scotland's kings were crowned. There is also the church where John Knox fuelled the fire of the Reformation at the church of St. John's Kirk. Another historical attraction is Balhousie Castle home to the Black Watch regiment museum. For a change of scenery visit the Perth Mart Visitor Centre which details the area's agricultural heritage.

To explore Perth by foot, follow the Old Perth Trail through the city's historic quarter, and along its pedestrianised high street. For a more vigorous work-out climb the wooded slopes of Kinnoull Hill and enjoy the breathtaking views of the city and surrounding countryside. There are also the large and lush public parks called the North and South Inches to amble through.

The pedestrianised High Street and St. John's area are the centre for shopping - where many unique and not so unique Scottish products can be purchased. For a place to eat and relax, and maybe sample some regional whiskies, the café quarter near St. John's Kirk and the City Hall is the place to be.

Nearby attractions include the island castle on Loch Laven where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, the huge and haunted Glamis Castle and the Queen's View -one of the most famous views in Scotland.

ScotRail provides a service between Edinburgh and Perth (90 min). If you are driving from Edinburgh, take the A90 northwest and go across the Forth Road Bridge, continuing north along M90 (1 1/2 hr.). Edinburgh's International Airport receives limited long haul flights but is well connected to Europe and the rest of the UK.
