Perth racecourse

Adjacent to the ancient Scone Palace, Perth opened in 1908 and is the northernmost track in Britain. Four miles north of the town off the A93 Blairgowrie road, drivers should take the M85 and leave at Junction 1.

Front runners have a good record as the track is virtually flat and the tight bends play to their strengths. Fixtures take place between April and September with the highlight being the Perth Festival in late April.
