Free parking in Perth during the festive season

To help with your Christmas shopping, Perth & Kinross Council is bringing back FREE parking every weekend in December! 

This means that you can enjoy our amazing winter festival events, explore Perth’s indie businesses and enjoy the tasty treats that Perth has to offer without worrying about topping up the meter. The scheme also operates in Council car parks around Perth City Centre, well as in Blairgowrie, Crieff and Dunkeld. If a car parks payment machine is covered up then this means that it is part of the scheme.

Take a look at this handy little video to find out exactly where you can and can’t park! 👇
