Where to stay

Perth has a historic town centre full of Georgian architecture. The High Street is pedestrianised, making it a relaxed place to shop, and there are lots of cafes and big-name shops in a compact area. There's lively nightlife, with bars and clubs packed into the centre opening until the early hours. Kinross is a small town with cobbled streets and stone houses. Close to Loch Leven, it's popular for country escapes and there are independent shops, cafes and cosy traditional pubs to be found in the town centre.

Things to see

At The Scottish Crannog Centre you can see how locals lived in the Iron Age, with a reconstruction of a typical dwelling. Sitting on stilts over the lake, this wooden roundhouse hosts demonstrations of spinning and weaving, as well as lots of fascinating talks about the history of this area, where underwater archaeological excavations have uncovered a number of treasures. Dating back to the 17th century, the Edradour Distillery is one of the last farm distilleries still creating a single malt whisky. Step inside the old stone buildings and you'll be able to smell the rich oak aromas as you learn how whisky is made the old-fashioned way. There's even the chance to taste a wee dram or 2 and buy a bottle to take home. Scone Palace is often recommended in Perth and Kinross reviews, and this imposing castle with large sandstone turrets dates back to the 12th century. Peacocks roam the neat gardens and there's a giant hedge maze with lots of twists and turns to keep the kids occupied.
