Scottish Central Railway opened Perth General station in 1848. Centrally located, for a century, Perth was an important hub for travellers heading out to Scotland’s major cities. Today, the station, renamed Perth in 1952, lies on the Glasgow-to-Dundee and Aberdeen Line and the Highland Main Line, and the Caledonian Sleeper from London is a daily – or nightly – visitor. Designed by Sir William Tite, the station’s original award-winning two-storey Tudor-style building, with its high roof is still recognizable today. Leaving the wide glass roof of the station behind, and passing the historic Station Hotel, visitors can grab a cab or take the nine-minute stroll into Scotland’s former-capital, with its tall spires and the gleaming River Tay flowing through its centre. The Bells Sports Centre, Caithness Glass Visitor Centre and St Johns Shopping Centre are all within walking distance of the station.
