Welcome to Perth - Live Life Well

In Perth we live life well and you can too.

We’re proud to be Scotland’s newest city and cultural destination.

Perth is at the heart of the country’s experience and the perfect base to explore what makes our nation special from the Perthshire countryside to the Highlands to Dundee and the V&A as well as Glasgow and Edinburgh.

We are a small city of great significance. We’re boutique. Discover our quirky, niche and quality independent shops. Enjoy great dining serving the finest Perthshire produce, our Highland spring water and fish caught in our lochs and rivers.

Perth is a place where life feels good. Green spaces, pure water, wide skies, big mountains and fresh air. Escape the mundane and step into special with golf at Gleneagles, shooting, fishing, and a host of other outdoor pursuits. And if it rains (it does the odd time!) we have a theatre, cinema, galleries, concert hall and museums to inspire and entertain you. In Perth we stimulate life and living.

We’re a place of business as we welcome in a new age of independents from food producers and shops to arts and culture SME’s. Yet we are also home to Stagecoach Group, SSE and Aviva. Perth is growing with new housing and a desire to build on the recent investors Porsche, Jaguar Land Rover and Bellway Homes. Why? Location, Landscape, Leisure.
