To the north of Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh lies the region of Perth and Kinross, home to a serene countryside with majestic glens, rolling hills, and bodies of water like Loch Leven and the River Tay. The largest city in the region is that of Perth, a former national capital, and still a major cultural and historical centre today.
Perth and its surroundings are home to a number of important attractions, all of which can be easily accessed from any of the region’s hotels, B&Bs, or guesthouses. These include sites like Scone Palace, the former location for the coronation of Scottish Kings and St. John’s Kirk, one of the country’s most important churches.
