Geographically, the local authority area of Perth & Kinross covers the historic counties of Perthshire and Kinross-shire, including Perth city, once the ancient capital of Scotland.
The area is split into two by the Highland Boundary Fault. The more mountainous northern part is full of glacial valleys and lochs, making it a popular playground for lovers of the great outdoors, while the flatter southern region includes the city itself, the town of Kinross, and much of the agriculture that has ensured the areas reputation as Scotland’s larder and foodie hot spot.
A phenomenal spread of nature, attractions, activities, culture, food and history, makes the area a popular destination for both day visitors and tourists seeking to explore the region and wider Scotland.
