Did you know Perth was voted the happiest place to live in Scotland in 2020 by Right Move? This desirable city is located in central Scotland on the banks of the River Tay and is the perfect place to settle down with the family. Boasting a lively city centre, gorgeous architecture and stunning surrounding landscapes, it’s easy to see why the ‘Fair City’ is beloved by so many. What’s more, it’s close to Dundee, Stirling and the rest of the central belt, making it as accessible as it is picturesque.

Miller Homes at Bertha Park is located just three miles from the centre of Perth, making it so convenient – read on for some of the reasons we believe it’s a fantastic place to put down roots.

Scenic surroundings

Perth is named the ‘Fair City’ for a reason. Perfectly located on the banks of the River Tay and nestled in among sprawling public parks, the elegant Georgian architecture, cobbled streets and scenic walking trails make Perth one of the most beautiful areas in central Scotland. The nearby Kinnoull Hill and Tower to the east of the city offers outstanding views across the River Tay, the Friarton Bridge and a stretch of the Tay Coast railway line from its peak and the tranquil trails can be enjoyed by walkers of all abilities.

Fascinating history and culture

With Georgian buildings and spires dominating its iconic skyline, it’s no surprise that the charming city of Perth is steeped in rich history and culture. Once the capital of Scotland and frequented by kings and queens, Perth continues to inspire those who visit with an impressive selection of historic sights and educational museums. The 5-star multi-award winning Black Watch Castle and Museum housed in Balhousie Castle tells the story of Scotland’s Premier Highland Regiment, with the origins of the building dating back to the 12th century. Perth Museum and Art Gallery is another brilliant attraction and one of Scotland’s oldest established museums. A fantastic day out for the whole family, it gives visitors a unique look back at the history of Perth and is home to more than half a million local, national and international artefacts and artwork.

Great for commuting

If you work in another of the cities across Scotland’s central belt, Perth is a great spot to call home. With excellent transport links nearby, including trains running directly to Glasgow, Stirling, Dunfermline, Edinburgh and Dundee and easy access to the M90 motorway, you’ll be ideally situated to make the most of Scotland’s most popular cities, even if just for a day trip.

Unlimited amenities on your doorstep

With top schools just a stone’s throw away, including a brand new state of the art high school a few minutes’ walk from the development, a bustling city centre with a wide selection of shops and a lively food and drink scene, Perth has everything you could ask for and is a great place for professionals, families and couples to settle down. An impressive range of amenities set in stunning historical surroundings means that Perth has all the charm of a small town, and the convenience of a big city. The high street boasts a variety of stores including homeware haven Quince & Cook, the fashionable Oliver Bonas and Next for all your window shopping needs. After a look around the shops, pop into one of Perth’s esteemed restaurants for a bite to eat and a drink to unwind.
