Perth City Hall - Any Suggestions?
The threat of being demolished hangs over this beautiful building, as the locals and the council cannot agree on what to use it for.
Inside it is used for modest concerts, public meetings and low key events, but is often empty. Its locked within pedestrian streets and the lack of parking seem to inhibit other users.
What do you suggest??? Please send your ideas to me or the local council - web below (pkc). Would you like this building to be kept and a new use found? Or would you prefer to see a fountain in its place???
How about a public space, an interpretive museum and cultural centre, markets, art gallery, ,,,, ????
This is your chance to make a difference!!
Kinross house lies on the banks of Lochleven and was built by Sir William Bruce of Balcaskie in 1690.
This involved the relocation of parts of the town still on the headland, and significant development immediately outside the gates on the west side of the estate. Kinross House is now accessed from a side street in Kinross and through its gates the visitor can catch a distant glimpse of the first major house in Scotland not built as a castle.
The house itself is a private residence and not open to the public
The gardens are open April to September
Admission Charge £2,50
Highland Games in Perth
"Tossing the Caber"
This picture was taken during Highland Games that took place in Perth. The thing I enjoyed most was the music of the pipes and drums bands. However, I think the climax of the games remains the most picturesque competition of 'tossing the caber'.
I may live in London but part of me shall always remain in Scotland!
Perth is my home town, and as such I am perhaps just a little biased! I would recommend it to anyone who was planning a visit to Scotland.
I can't think of anything else to say at the moment so I shall leave it at that!
