The city of Perth Scotland is the county town
of Perthshire and also known as St John's Town or even as the Fair
Perth's city centre is compact with
two large and open public parks - the North and South Inches on each flank
and the mighty River Tay along side.
Much of the Perth's High Street is
a traffic free precinct with a wide variety of shops large and small. Many
of the streets around the centre are comprised of elegant Georgian terraced
Perth has probably always been a centre
for farming and less dependent on the traditional Scottish industries of
fishing, textiles and engineering. Not only did this give rise to its relatively
small size but also to its air of prosperity.
The city is a bustling market town
with much to offer the tourist. Shops, galleries and theatre in the town
centre. Scenery, castles, history, walks and attractions in the country around.
Nearby is historic Scone Palace and Perth Racecourse.
