This afternoon, I had the opportunity to visit the City of Perth, which was once the capital of Scotland (in medieval times).

Perth is the county ‘capital’ of Perthshire, the latter being an area I know very well and regularly visit in course of my tours of Scotland. However, from a touring perspective¬†I don’t consider that Perth itself has a great deal to offer the visitor and hence rarely visit. Today, I had the benefit of unusually sunny weather and as can be seen from the images below Perth is prosperous and boast some interesting architecture. The city has a population of about 45,000, is well endowed with churches¬†and sits on the banks of the mighty River Tay (Scotland’s longest river system) which has flooded the area in the past.
