The City of Perth

Located on the banks of the River Tay, Perth is a former capital of Scotland and the site where many of its famous Kings were crowned on the Stone of Destiny at Scone Palace. Today, visitors can still make their way to this elegant and myth inspiring castle, where everyone from Macbeth, to Robert the Bruce and Charles II were crowned. Perth's historical status makes it one of the best cultural cities to visit in Scotland, and it is well regarded as one of the premier culinary centres, perfect for trying some traditional Scottish dishes.

The Town of Kinross

Kinross lies directly north of the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh, and makes for a perfect introduction to the region of Perthshire, with its idyllic views of Loch Leven, the largest loch in the Scottish Lowlands it makes for a fantastic spot to explore the nearby nature reserve. Head to the centre of the loch to visit the historic site of Loch Leven, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in 1567, before her fairytale escape by boat. Loch Leven is also the perfect destination for anyone looking to enjoy outdoor activities, from trekking, to watersports. To plan your stay in a comfortable and quaint hotel on the shores of Loch Leven, you can use Expedia’s handy search tool, which will make your research and booking fast and easy.

Gleneagles Village and the Perthshire Countryside

Gleneagles Village sits nestled in the hills of Perthshire, and the local resort and golf courses are considered to be some of the finest and most luxurious offerings in the country. The Gleneagles Kings, and PGA Centenary Courses are must play moorland tracks for any golf fan, as they’ve been the host sites for the Johnnie Walker Championship and Ryder Cup, respectively. The local luxury hotel is also housed in a stunning early 19th century building, and the grounds and gardens will provide visitors with plenty of photo opportunities.

For those with kids or an interest in literary history, it's worth exploring the countryside of Perthshire, where you’ll come across the inspiration for works such as The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and learn about the author at the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Garden in Dunkeld. Another must-visit is the “Big Tree Country”, whose forests are home to the Fortingall Yew, the last remaining woods depicted in Shakespeare’s Scottish play, Macbeth.

In a country that is replete with a dizzying amount of beautiful countryside, the region of Perthshire and Kinross stands out as one of Scotland’s most rich and dramatic.
