Perth offers a wealth of outdoor activities. Walks through beautiful woodlands, hill walking, spectacular lochs & rivers & some great waterfalls.
Fondest memory: Perth is known as the Heart of Scotland, great for seeing the Scottish countrysides special lochs & mountains & hills & glens.
Favorite thing: From bright blue skies to broodng clouds = this place is beautiful in all weathers. The mountains can be shrouded in cloud or snow capped with wpnderful blue skies. Perthshire is breathtakingly beaufitful
Tressait is located on Loch Tummel, a short drive north-west of Perth. It's a gorgeous little place that we couldn't help but stop at... :)
That's our little hire car in the front of the beautiful buildings in Tressait.
We visited the Caitness Glass Factory just near Perth...it was interesting to watch the guys making different glass products from vases to bowls to Christmas decorations.
We ended up buying a few presents to take back home from this place...they had some amazing stuff.
Or Universe ... well this is the famous Meikleour Beach Hedge, near to Perth on the road out to Blairgowrie (north east).
Of course, my picture doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea.
There are some wonderful bike rides out this way and loads of antiquity, so if you can hire a bike for a day, ride out past this hedge, and feel very, very small.
The cathedral in Dunkeld was the centre of religion in Scotland, and so the political power base.
It was from here that King Duncan's followers avenged his death at the hands of Macbeth (Karl Hundason?), famously by 'marching' upon Dunsinane Hill Fort with Oaks from Birnham Wood (see Shakespeare for the fictional version of events!)
Fondest memory: Perth is very much the coutryside around the centre, so is generally referred to as "Perthshire".
Use Perth as a base, and focal point, but it is the surrounding places (within 30 miles) that is of real significance and importance to a Scottish Tour.
This Picture is in The Hermitage, by Dunkeld.
Until the new Concert & Conference Hall opens in 2005, this area of Perth (end of Skinnergate) is going to be a building site, so watch out for lorries and dangers.
This is on the site of a former castle, so its actually interesting, archaeologically.
Perth has a good reputation for music, so hopefully the new building will be attracting good quality artists.

Wow this is the only place on earth that i think marrying your close relatives is law. It was like god got an ugly stick and beat everyone within a 40 mile radius.
Redeeming features it is close to 'T in The Park'
Fondest memory: The bearded lady and the man with 4 ears.
Favorite thing: Loch Tummel is about 30 - 40 miles north-west of Perth. It's definitely worth having a look at because it is a very pretty area. It would be gorgeous on a nice day too!
Favorite thing: Tressait is a cute little village we found on our way past Loch Tummel... We had to stop here for a few photos because it looked so good. :)
Visit some of the different lakes like Loch Ness...maybe you will be lucky enough to see Nessie... ;)
This is Loch Leven, another nice lake.
Favorite thing: I think this photo was taken at a place called the "Queens View" because it is the best view of the lake... :)
