History of Perth
Perth has been known as The Fair City since the publication of the story Fair Maid of Perth by Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott in 1828 and has been the inspiration for other famous Perth's around the world including Western Australia and Eastern Ontario, Canada. The city has been inhabited for thousands of years with the evidence of life stretching back over 8,000 years.
Perth is arguably most notable for the presence of Scone Abbey, home of the Stone of Scone (also known as the Stone of Destiny). Used in coronations since as far back as the 14th century, the stone was used to signify the changing of the monarch and enhances the early importance of the city. After various quibbles with the English about its use and heritage, it can now be found safetely on show at Edinburgh castle, however the story and history is still plain to see through Perth. Interestingly, the last use of the Stone of Scone was by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
In previous years, Perth became known as a 'capital' of Scotland, due to the frequent residence of the royal court and the city tells many wonders of its royal past.Back to top
