Scotland's ancient capital for five centuries, the 'Fair City' of Perth is now the country's newest city. Bustling, compact and beautifully situated on the banks of the River Tay in the east of Scotland, this city is a sparkling cosmopolitan gem that keeps on giving visit after visit. Located only an hour from Edinburgh or Glasgow, Perth is one of the most accessible cities in the country and is perfect for a holiday get away, weekend or city break.
Nestled between two sprawling public parks, the elegant Georgian townhouses, cobbled streets and medieval spires, Perth boasts an array of outstanding monuments, art galleries and museums you can explore, as well as being able to take in the historic atmosphere by wandering the streets and nearby trails. With bustling weekend markets and stylish shopping centres, a holiday in Perth is the perfect choice if you're looking for a unique shopping experience. The surrounding Perthshire area also offers several unique shopping experiences. And whether you're after a quick bite to eat or a three-course meal with all the trimmings, the city's dining scene doesn't disappoint.
You can now travel short distances of around 5 miles to enjoy the outdoors and exercise in Scotland, to use public spaces for recreational purposes such as sitting to soak up the sun (where possible!), and to meet up with one other household in small numbers. Please remember to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times, both indoors and outdoors.
