The city is very quaint and the surrounding Perthshire countryside is stunning. Perth is 45 miles north of Edinburgh – an hour’s drive or 1 hour and 15 minutes on the train.
Perth itself has a freindly and lively nightlife, with many cool bars and fine restaurants. Many people choose to visit Perth to go shopping. The town has lots of boutique retailers selling local produce – luxury woollen goods made at local mills is particulalry popular.
Perthshire is also a great centre for outdoor activities such as hill walking, white water rafting, fishing, shooting, canyoning, golfing and much more – ideal for group visits. Perth and Perthshire have some fantastic group accommodation options too. There are stylish boutique hotels, cosy guest houses, holiday lodges and city centre apartments to choose from, all at very affordable rates for groups.
