Perth Travel Guide
Perth Local History
Perth is known as the ancient capital of Scotland, a status it held until James I, king of Scotland, was murdered there in 1437. In 1298 Perth was captured and fortified by Edward I, king of England. It was retaken in 1311 by Robert Bruce. The town was again held by the English from 1335 to 1339. Perth's port, an important harbour during the Middle Ages, is now of relatively minor significance.
Much of the Perth's High Street is a traffic free precinct with a wide variety of shops large and small.
