The riverside city of Perth is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. It is the starting point for a tour which combines beautiful scenery with history and splendour. Only three miles from Perth is Huntingtower Castle with its splendid painted ceilings and at Dunkeld beside the River Tay is the ancient Cathedral. Blair Castle with its thirty two rooms of beautiful furniture, fine paintings, china, embroidery and armour is only seven miles from your overnight stop at the Victorian Highland Resort of Pitlochry. A transfer to the seaside city of Dundee on the east coast and visit the V&A Dundee, Scotland's First Design Museum. Cross the Tay Road Bridge and you are now in the Kingdom of Fife. Enjoy magnificent views across the Firth of Tay as you cycle to the ancient university town of St Andrews which is the home of golf and has a fine golf museum. The ruined Castle and massive Cathedral are well worth a visit. Before returning to Perth pause to visit Falkland Palace, a fine example of Renaissance architecture with a beautiful Royal Chapel. At Perth, Scone Palace has rare porcelain, needlework, fine furniture, clocks and the unique Vernis Martin Collection.
