Things To Do

For a great day out Perth has a lot to offer by way of visitor attractions and leisure activities. Heritage highlights include Scone Palace, the ancestral home of the Earls of Mansfield and the crowning place of Scottish Kings and Perth Black Watch Museum and Balhousie Castle which offers an insight into one of the British Army’s, if not the world’s most famous, fighting units.

Leisure activities abound at Perth Leisure Pool, one of the best leisure swimming pools in Scotland and Bell’s Sports Centre at North Inch which hosts a wide range of national and international sporting events.

For culture Perth Museum and Art Gallery houses a varied collection both at a local level, and also material of a national and indeed international significance whilst gardening lovers will enjoy National Trust-owned Branklyn Gardens containing an outstanding collection of plants attracting gardeners and botanists from all over the world.
