Perth is at the centre of Scotland, quite literally! It has been voted one of the best places in the country to live and is one of the friendliest and safest cities in the UK.
It isn't sleepy by any stretch of the imagination though; with scores of restaurants, nightclubs, bars and an award-winning concert hall, the place is buzzing. The shops are amazing too; every street you turn into in the city centre is lined with all the high street shops you'd expect, as well as little boutiques to explore and enjoy.
The city is only one hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow and within easy reach of Stirling, Dundee and the towns of neighbouring Fife, so you'll never be short of things to do in your free time.
