Central Scotland's town of Perth is a former royal burgh on the shore of the River Tay surrounded by rolling hills and trees. Perth is an architectural delight with landmarks like St. John's Kirk, a 12th century church and the 15th century Fair Maid's House. The area is also modernising as formerly thriving whiskey distilleries have yielded to the technology, insurance and banking industries in recent years. Visitors can dine at several Italian restaurants in Perth's metropolitan city centre.
