Gaelic culture and heritage

Perth and Kinross is in the heart of Scotland geographically, and at the heart of Scotland's story. It holds a culture and heritage born of the many different communities who have lived here since prehistoric times and the extraordinary events they have witnessed over the centuries. We have one of the richest stories of Place to tell, and our Gaelic heritage makes up a large part of that story.

Our Gaelic Heritage includes a wealth of stories and songs, traditional Gaelic melodies and a landscape full of gaelic place names.

A snapshot of the Gaelic heritage of our area has been captured in the following film 'A Journey of Discovery'.

Pupils from Goodlyburn Gaelic Medium Unit have created the icon Perth City Centre Heritage Trail [12Mb]. Copies are available at Perth Museum and Art Gallery and Visit Scotland on Perth High Street.
