Pocket Guide: Perth and Kinross

Perth and Kinross is a region of Scotland located just to the north of the Firth of Fife, and a short trip from the hotels, pubs, and attractions of the capital city of Edinburgh. Many visitors to the region will arrive in Perth and Kinross en-route to destinations like Aberdeenshire or Inverness in the north, but this east-coast area has a charm that should not be missed.

The region is majestic in its beauty, featuring many of the picturesque countryside attributes that the lowlands are known for, such as lush green glens, forests, and a number of stunning lochs, including Loch Leven, the largest in the Lowlands. However, it is also home to an array of important historical attractions such as Loch Leven Castle, a 14th century tower where Mary Queen of Scots was both imprisoned and forced to abdicate the throne before making a daring escape in 1564; guests will also discover the Black Watch Castle and Museum, which recounts the history of one of Scotland’s elite military regiments, as well as a number of nature sites, like the Branklyn Garden, featuring a collection of plants from Tibet, China, and Bhutan.

Whatever your reason for venturing into Perth and Kinross you’ll find there is plenty to both see and do.

Explore the City of Perth

Perth is a city that sits on the banks of the River Tay, the longest in Scotland, and is also a former capital of the nation, having played an important role in the country’s political, commercial, and judicial history over the last 800 years. In fact it was in the stately Scone Palace, in the north of Perth that Scotland once crowned its kings on the Stone of Scone—or the Stone of Destiny—a replica of which can be seen in front of the rebuilt Scone Abbey, where the Stone was once kept. While it is a small city, Perth does have an award-winning cultural scene, including music and entertainment venues such as The Green Rooms LTD, and Perth Theatre, a traditional Edwardian Theatre Hall. The city is also commonly considered to be one of Scotland’s premier culinary centres, so if anyone is interested in trying some delicious Scottish fare then be sure to not miss out on a visit to Perth.

Visit the Town of Kinross and Loch Leven

Whether you’re headed north to Perth for a taste of Scotland, or east towards the famous town of St. Andrews, with its ruined castle and cathedral and the world-renowned St. Andrews Old Course, you’re likely to pass through the town of Kinross, which gives visitors the chance to explore one of Scotland’s more historic and picturesque pieces of countryside. Loch Leven itself is worth the visit to the area, with its iconic island castle, and nature reserve that attracts some 20,000 pink-footed geese to its waters each year. For those wanting to really get out and about, the Loch Leven Heritage trail offers 16 miles of paths for trekking, and there is also a nearby golf course, as well as parks and playgrounds for families.
