Living in Perth

Positioned beautifully on the River Tay’s fertile banks and named lovingly the Fair City inspired by Sir Walter Scott’s Fair Maid of Perth, it is a cosmopolitan gem that impresses in its appearance and the quality of life it offers. For five centuries, Perth was the capital of Scotland and has acquired a wealth of heritage.

It is the city of the county of Perthshire and the administrative centre of Perth and Kinross. St. John's Kirk is the most ancient landmark of Perth, which sits at the very centre of the city. Its distinguishable broad spire has dominated Perth's skyline for over 500 years.

By the 12th Century, Perth has become a key trading centre and market town. It received the charter as a Royal Burgh by King David I. It was the capital of Scotland and seat of government until the assassination of James I at Blackfriars monastery in 1437.

Perth was the inspiration behind Sir Walter Scott’s novel The Fair Maid of Perth. And, since its publication in 1828, Perth became to be known to this day as the ‘Fair City’ of Perth. The Fair Maid’s House, which is the house where Catherine Glover, the protagonist of Walter Scott’s novel, lived, is still a visitor attraction in Perth. It is the city’s oldest secular building and now houses the Royal Scottish Geographical Society's visitor and education centre.

The Stone of Destiny once stood at the grounds of Scone Palace, the crowning place of Scottish kings, where Macbeth, Robert the Bruce, and Charles II were once crowned.

The city is at the southern end of a fertile plain, nourished by River Tay flowing through it. Kinnoull Hill to the east, Moncreiffe Hill to the south-southeast, and Friarton, St Magdalene’s, Hilton, & Mailer Hills to the south-southwest skirt the city. Perth has one of the mildest climates in Scotland. Its oceanic climate brings cool summers and mild winters.

Perth City

Perth was the winner of Scotland’s first Food Town in 2018. The buzzing city centre is a hive of activity with independent shops lining the streets, high street brand names, award-winning distilleries as far as the eye can see, electric restaurants, a vibrant café culture, and rich arts & crafts scene. Perth is known for its extensive parklands and gardens. North Inch and South Inch are the largest parks. The Norrie Miller riverside walk is a stunning way to end an evening. And, you will appreciate the river’s public art trail that is suitable for some quiet musing or Instagramming quality content. Kinnoull Hill has spectacular views over the River Tay and the city below.

The Balhousie Castle is home to the Black Watch Museum that celebrates Scotland's elite military regiment. Formed in 1725 to control rebellious Highlanders during the days of the Jacobite uprising, the Black Watch has played a key role in both the World Wars.

A mile south of the city centre is the Perth Harbour, the highest point of the River Tay. Located along the banks of Tay at the lowest natural crossing point, the Auld Brig connects the eastern and western banks.
