Perth was one of Scotland’s most important medieval royal burghs. Many trade routes met here and ships arrived on high tides from England and the continent. Perth’s craftsmen were rich, skilled and influential and the markets flourished. While little of medieval Perth survives above ground, there is still evidence of this important past throughout the city centre.
