About Perth & Kinross

Perth & Kinross is an area of contrast and opportunity. It offers the ideal blend of spectacular rural landscapes and vibrant urban centres, presenting complex economic social challenges across different communities. The council is committed to working with its partners to shape a sustainable and prosperous place for all, channelling public and private sector investment to capitalise on our assets, harness the potential of new technology and create more opportunities for our community.

Perth and Kinross is fast becoming a destination of choice for investors given the well-connected location and major developments which will transform the area.  Highlights include cultural offerings like the City Hall Museum project, which will see the Stone of Destiny return home in 2024; the creation of the ground-breaking Bertha Park High School with further new schools planned for the area; and the £700 million Tay Cities Deal to boost economic prosperity across Perth and Kinross and our neighbouring local authorities. 

Perth, Scotland's newest city, is the area's hub, providing culture, entertainment, shopping and leisure. Our smaller towns and villages provide much of this too, on a smaller and more intimate scale.  In the surrounding area, there is world class fishing, walking routes ranging from marked forest trails to lofty treks in the mountains, great cycling routes, numerous adventure sports facilities and an unsurpassed range of golf courses to satisfy all abilities.    

With the easing of restrictions Perth and Kinross look forward to welcoming back many of its highly anticipated and high profile cultural events like Rewind and Perth Highland Games.    

Scone Palace is the ancestral home of the Earls of Mansfield and the crowning place of Scottish Kings. The Black Watch Museum and Balhousie Castle both offer an insight into one of the British Army's most famous fighting units.    

The property market is very diverse, offering a mix of old and new, conversions of old mills, steadings, churches and farm buildings, all of which can be located in and around popular towns and villages such as Blairgowrie, Crieff, Kinross, Scone, Auchterarder and Pitlochry and the City of Perth offers everything from quaint stone built cottages to impressive period mansions, listed conversions, townhouses, modern apartments and executive developments.  

Perth and Kinross is consistently identified as a great place to live and considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland.  In Rightmove’s most recent Happy at Home Index, Perth has been voted as the happiest place to live in Scotland, citing its strong community spirit, and it’s the 5th happiest place to live in the UK.
