Living in Perth and Kinross

Perth and Kinross receives a consistently high ranking in quality of life surveys.

The area has one of the fastest growing school age populations in Scotland with 100 new primary places needed per annum. Another brand new secondary school is being built in Perth to complement the existing four, and more than 25% of all school children in the area are educated at one of six state-of-the-art community campuses. These beautifully designed campuses offer a superb new learning environment, as well as high quality community facilities such as libraries, sports hall, dance and drama studios and conference space.
The area’s property market is very diverse, offering a mix of old and new and, increasingly, a combination of the two as seen in imaginative conversions of old mills, steadings, churches and farm buildings, all of which can be found in and around popular towns and villages such as Blairgowrie, Crieff, Kinross, Scone, Auchterarder and Pitlochry. In outlying areas there's an abundance of one-off properties, many with land. At the other end of the scale, the City of Perth offers urban die-hards everything from quaint stone built cottages to impressive period mansions, listed conversions, townhouses, modern apartments and executive developments.
