    Tressait

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Inside Caitness Glass Factory

    Favorite thing: 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.

    The Biggest Hedge in the World

    Meikleour Beach Hedge by Perth

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Dunkeld - North Perth - Historic & Beautiful

    by scotlandscotour Written Mar 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hermitage, Tallest Trees in UK, Magic and Myst

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Perth Concert Hall - opens 2005

    by scotlandscotour Updated Mar 17, 2004

    Perth - Concert Hall Building Site 2004

    Favorite thing: 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.

    try www.pkc.gov.uk for more info.

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Loch Tummel

    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!
