Our trips – 6 – Perth

Perth, English course in Scotland

Our county town of Perth, a historic city and former capital of Scotland, makes a good trip if you would like a break from the countryside.  It boasts a castle, museums and galleries, an ice-rink and a great leisure pool with flumes, currents and jacuzzi as well as a separate pool for serious swimming.  There’s a concert hall and a theatre too.  It also has 3 golf clubs, one of which is on an island in the river Tay – Scotland’s longest river.  Perth is a half hour drive from Crieff – by car or bus.

My favourite thing to do in Perth is actually the short walk up woody Kinnoull Hill.  At the top there is a dramatic viewpoint over the River Tay.
