"Perth Bridge over the River Tay - a mighty river" Tayside Things to Do Tip by scotlandscotour

Tayside Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Perth Bridge - River Tay - Art Celebration
by scotlandscotour

The most interesting starting point for exploring Tayside is the small city of Perth, only 50,000 people, capital of Perthshire and once the place where kings met, took power and were assassinated.

Perth is where the River Tay enters the estuary, and so the city has a long and turbulent history, ever since the first neolithic settlers rowed wooden canoes up the river.

Now life is easier.

See my Perth pages or my Scotland Page for information about the whole of Tayside.

Go here for more places to see in Tay / Perthshire.

Address: Perth City, Tayside, Scotland
Directions: On the Highland Boundary Fault line - the geological distinction between Highland and Lowland Scotland. North of Edinburgh.
