Leave your credit card in the car or hotel.
The items in the shops can be bought locally in all parts of Scotlland for a lot less!
Enough said described in local info as Harrod's of the north.
Worth a look if it's raining!
Perth railway station must be one of the worst places to be forced to spend a few hours.
We missed the direct London -Inverness train by a minute - confusing Euston and KIng's Cross; stupid thing to do, I know.
So, we took the train to Glasgow, then Perth where we had to wait for the connecting train to Inverness.
First, it is so drab and gloomy, in shades of grey. Nothing seemed to stay open after 7pm, so there was no way we could get anything to eat without carting our luggage out of the station with us, and then there was no guarantee of finding anywhere to eat.
The seats seemed as hard as the local grey stone.
Your Arrival in any UK town, and certainly Perth, will sadly be spoiled by the first things you see.
Most likely this will be a non-descript modern housing estate, or a supermarket, both springing up like mushrooms to support the growing population of workers.
If you are an architect or sensitive soul, I am sorry for inflicting this picture on you.
Buy a ticket or get a fine (sixty pounds!). The traffic wardens are very zealous and there is no excuse under the sun that can save you.
Pay up quickly and its 50%.
You need change for the ticket machines (its about 1-2 pounds for a couple of hours.
Before you book your hotel in Perth, or anywhere in Scotland, be warned ... they are poor value for money in my book.
Typically sixty pounds (£) for a room only, when you can stay bed & breakfast in a small private friendly personal house for £20 per person.
OK for Business People (expenses) but not worth it for tourists.
Two miles from the centre of town in a depressing building. No thanks.
