Colour view of an untended garden bounded by stone walls, set next to a narrow loch with tall hills in the background. Aside from a small hedge, some broken-down walls and three tall trees, the garden is given over to grass. To the left, a woman in a red anorak stands on an overgrown path.

Features of the area

Perth and Kinross Group

Perth and Kinross is one of Scotland’s 32 unitary council areas. It borders Aberdeenshire, Angus, Dundee City, Fife, Clackmannanshire, Stirling, Argyll and Bute and Highland. It has its administrative centre in Perth.

It corresponds broadly, but not exactly, with the former counties of Perthshire and Kinross-shire. These two counties operated under a joint county council from 1929 until 1975, when they merged into a single district of Tayside Region. The current council area was formed in 1996.
