Introducing Perth

Sedately arranged along the banks of the Tay, this former capital of Scotland is a most liveable place with large tracts of enticing parkland surrounding an easily managed centre. On its outskirts lies Scone Palace, a country house of staggering luxury built alongside the mound that was the crowning place of Scotland's kings. It's a must-see, but the town itself, ennobled by stately architecture, fine galleries and excellent restaurants, merits exploration, and is within easy striking distance of both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
