The border region of the Highlands and Lowlands holds a complex and unique history, as it has been home to everything from battle to trade between the clans of the north and the ruling class of the Lowlands. Today, visitors don’t have to travel far from their hotels in the region of Perth and Kinross to get a taste of this history, be it at the Crieff Visitor Centre with its Highland Drovers Exhibition, or at the Birnam Oak, where the witches of Shakespeare’s Macbeth once prophesied a great battle.
Discover the City of Perth
The city of Perth is in fact a former capital of Scotland, and because of this holds much historical importance in its own right, including sites like Scone Palace, and Scone Abbey, both of which played roles in the ceremonial crowning of the country’s kings.
