Formerly Scotland’s ancient capital, Perth had its civic status reinstated in 2012 to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee making it Scotland’s newest city.

At Kenmore you can see inside an authentically recreated Iron Age dwelling on the shore of Loch Tay at the Scottish Crannog Centre, while further north lies the reputed birthplace of Pontius Pilate, Fortingall. See the Fortingall Yew, an ancient tree believed to be the oldest living thing in Europe. 

Explore the neighbouring town of Dunkeld with its carefully restored white-washed houses and 11th century cathedral, and pay visit to the peaceful village of Dunning where you can see the Dupplin Cross, a masterpiece of Pictish masonry.

Don’t miss out Crieff, Comrie and Strathearn where you can explore the rugged landscape of the Highland Boundary Fault, visit whisky distilleries and take a boat out on Loch Earn.
