Hotels in Perth
Perth, located on the river Tay, entices you with a multitude of attractions as well as being a good starting point for excursions into the Scottish Highlands. You’ll discover fairytale castles, picturesque lochs and spectacular landscapes. If historical explorations are your thing, you won’t want to miss the Scone Palace with its “Stone of Destiny” and Huntingtower Castle. Cultural pleasures are provided by the Perth Theater as well as the Art Gallery and the Perth Museum; the latter is one of the oldest museums in all of Great Britain. And don’t forget to make a side trip to the town of Pitlochry in order to see the dam there and its specially constructed fish ladder.
Simply by taking a walk through Perth, you can experience a lot about the origins of the Scottish Reformation and “the bloody battle of the clans”. The area around the Scone Palace is completely dominated by horse racing during the months from April to September; these races have been taking place there since 1908. For whiskey connoisseurs, we recommend a visit to Dewar‘s World of Whisky and Distillery in Aberfeldy.
The idyllically situated Huntingtower Hotel is located outside the centre of the city and is ideal for tourists and businesspeople looking for a bit of peace and quiet. It incorporates conference rooms of its own and is much sought after for events and weddings.
