Meet The Perth Indies, Murrays The Bakers

Murrays Bakers of Perth was founded in 1901 by John Murray - great grandfather of the current proprietor, Linda Hill - and is now in its fourth generation of ownership.

Famous throughout Perthshire for their award-winning Murrays Pies, Linda has been involved in the business since the late 1980s and became a partner in the bakers with her late father.

Murrays Bakers was named Scottish Bakers Craft Baker of the Year 2017/18, the latest in a long list of prestigious awards presented to Linda and her team including being named Scotch Pie World Champions back in 2015.

Linda and the team have worked hard to create a safe space in their wee bakers shop, and are now open 6 days a week from 7am to 5pm. 

"We're so glad to be open and serving our loyal customers again. Its been a tough year but being in a position to welcome everyone back in to pick up their pies, cakes and treats has made it all worthwhile."
