The small city of Perth was the old capital of Scotland and is steeped in history which you can explore at Perth Museum and Art Gallery or the nearby Black Watch Regimental Museum. Perth has riverside walks, shops, farmers market, restaurants, plus its own theatre and a concert hall which usually have a wide ranging events programme. Just outside Perth is the 5 star visitor attraction at Scone Palace which was the crowning-place of Scottish kings for hundreds of years.
Have a day at the races at Perth Racecourse, try ice skating at Dewars Centre, or take a wander around Branklyn Garden (National Trust for Scotland) on Kinnoull Hill. In addition to the golf courses in Perth, there are many more within a short drive including Gleneagles and Blairgowrie.
Also known as 'Big Tree Country', Perthshire has something for everyone who enjoys the great outdoors from hills and glens to rivers and waterfalls. There are lots of opportunities for walking, cycling, water-rafting and wildlife watching.
Woodcroft House is an ideal base from which you can explore all of Central Scotland including Dundee, Stirling, the Trossachs and the Kingdom of Fife.
