Fair City

Just a short drive from Blairgowrie, the Fair City of Perth is a city of parks and gardens that regularly wins Britain in Bloom awards.

Its narrow vennels conceal and cosset a host of small speciality shops and private art galleries and a host of interesting cafes and restaurants.

The new Perth Museum opens in Spring 2024 and, with the Stone of Destiny as its centrepiece, it will tell Scotland's story from the time Perth was the nation's first capital.

At the same time Perth Art Gallery, which already features major works by Eardley, MacTaggart & Watt, will become the home of the JD Fergusson Collection, displaying many of the great Scottish colourist's masterpieces.

And there's a year-round programme of music, dance and drama at the City's Theatre and Concert Hall. Everything from Rob Brydon to J.S. Bach.


Festival of the Arts

The Perth Festival of the Arts  each May has an exciting international programme. The 2024 event will include include performances by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Tenebrae and the Craig Charles Funk and Soul House Party.

Sport of Kings

Perth was once the capital of Scotland and Scottish kings, including Robert the Bruce, were crowned at magnificent Scone Palace, one of the UK’s most popular historic houses, which you’ll find on the city’s boundaries on the road to Blairgowrie.

Perth Racecourse, near Scone Palace, hosts a varied programme of flat and National Hunt racing from April to September, including the prestigious Gold Cup meeting in June.
