Perth is one of the oldest and most interesting areas of Scotland to visit today. It was first inhabited more than 8000 years ago because of its location on the River Tay and, having grown as a result of that in more recent times, today has a population in excess of 43,000. Having been built on a major historical site, modern Perth is a former royal burgh and has a wealth of history and culture to share.

Perth is home to a number of fantastic sites that attract visitors from all around the world every year. With waterwheels and traditional industry to examine, authentic Scottish distilleries to sample and numerous romantic and historically important castles to visit, Perth has something for everyone. Huntingtower Castle and Balhousie Castle are particularly popular for those wanting to take in a little history.

Modern culture is also important in Perth. For example, Perth Theatre and the Festival Theatre in Pitlochry offer a taste of culture with performances of plays, music and contemporary arts every year.
