Perth History Tour provides a fascinating glimpse into the past of ‘The Fair City’. It was once the capital of Scotland, was given Royal Burgh status in the early twelfth century under King David I and developed as one of the most affluent towns in Scotland. Perth’s position on the River Tay ensured that it became a busy trading port, exporting salmon and wool and importing claret from Bordeaux.


In this pocket-sized guide, Jack Gillon offers a tour around Perth’s streets and buildings, showing how its famous landmarks used to look and how they have changed over the years, as well as exploring some of its lesser-known sights and hidden corners. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited to discover for themselves the history and the changing face of Perth.
