Outdoor adventure near Perth holiday cottages

From the top of the hill, you can gaze out toward the historical city for breathtaking scenic views. You may also want to visit one of the two parks in town called the North Inch and South Inch.

How to get around

Transport to and around Perth holiday homes

Getting to holiday homes in Perth is fairly easy thanks to Dundee Airport, which is about a 20-minute drive from town. Because it’s only a regional airport, you’ll likely have to stop in Edinburgh or Glasgow first if you’re travelling from a significant distance. Londoners are lucky, however, as there is a direct flight to Dundee from London City. If you take the train in, you can stop directly in town at Perth Station. Numerous bus routes can get you to Perth from virtually anywhere in the U.K. as well. Once you’re in town, there are local bus services that can get you around town, along with a park-and-ride system to reduce congestion. Taxis are available as well, and there are car hires if you want to explore some of the surrounding areas.


Events near Perth villa rentals

Perth is a lively city with numerous annual festivals near villa rentals, so consider timing your trip to coincide with an event you won’t want to miss. If you visit near the end of May, you can enjoy the Perth Festival of the Arts. Here you can enjoy opera and classical-music performances just as the festival creators intended 45 years ago, while the modern iteration also features more-contemporary artists. Visual artists will also be around to show off their talents as well. If you visit during the right weekend in June, you can attend the Solas Festival. This is yet another music and arts festival, but its primary focus is inclusivity and tolerance. It still shows off brilliant works of art such as music and paintings, but they’re all placed in their proper cultural context to allow for a greater understanding. As an added bonus, children younger than 11 get in free.
