  5. The Fair City of Perth

Perth, often referred to as the the Fair City of Perth, sits at the heart of Scotland and is often referred to as the Gateway to the Highlands. Outstanding visitor attractions include the Fair Maid’s House in Curfew Row, The City Art gallery and museum, the Theatre (we can arrange early and late meals and suppers), the Black Watch Museum, The City Mills, The new Perth Concert Hall…..and of course Scone Palace, a stunningly beautiful building where Robert the Bruce and King Charles II were crowned, and whose grounds house the little racecourse. The climb up Kinnoull Hill is rewarded with  stunning views over  the Tay Valley.

Nearby you will find the town of Crieff with Scotland’s oldest distillery, Glenturret – and a fine visitor centre too!  Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument and Bannockburn are less than an hour away on the road to Edinburgh.

Short trips from Kinloch House take you to the Perthshire Visitor Centre, to idyllic Dunkeld and the Hermitage where you can find  Scotland’s tallest tree. Pitlochry with its ‘Theatre in the Hills’, its distilleries, dam and fish ladder and its lovely highland shops is only an hour away. Just past Pitlochry you will find Blair Castle and a few miles further up the road you can shop till you drop at the House of Bruar – ‘Scotland’s Harrods’.

Easy and scenically scintillating day trips take you to Braemar and into Royal Deeside, Aberfeldy Loch Tay and Killin, Glencoe, Rannoch and Schiehallion via the immortal ‘Queens View’, The Trossachs, The bonnie coastal fishing towns of Fife – and Dundee – ‘city of Discovery’ – the trip is short but Dundee has become so vibrant and modern its really worth taking time to explore.
