Focus on Perth

Perth is ideally located right in the heart of Scotland, surrounded by some of the country’s  most beautiful scenery.  It is a compact, easily navigated city and proud of its safe and friendly environment. Perth boasts excellent shopping, eating out, entertainment, attractions and sport, all within close proximity to the city centre.  The city itself is very attractive and regularly wins awards from Beautiful Britain for its floral displays, with streets and public gardens filled with stunning flowers and colour from Easter to Autumn.

You won’t have to travel far to explore some ancient Scottish history, as Perth and the surrounding area is filled with heritage attractions. Scone Palace is the ancestral home of the Earls of Mansfield and the crowning place of Scottish Kings.  Two Historic Scotland properties are also to be found in and around Perth. Elcho Castle is a handsome and complete fortified mansion of 16th-century date, with three projecting towers. Huntingtower Castle has two fine and complete towers, built in the 15th and 16th centuries and joined by a range in the 17th century.

When you need some relaxation from your English language studies, Perth Leisure Pool is one of the best leisure swimming pools in Scotland, and is right next door to Dewar’s Centre where you can curl, skate or bowl.  Visitors can also enjoy golf, walking or fishing. The surrounding area has a wealth of walks and trails to suit all abilities. Whether it be a stroll in the park or an energetic hike up Kinnoull Hill on the outskirts of Perth.
