The bus will make two trips from the city centre to the venue. The bus will leave from Kinnoull Street across from Christie’s Bar (73 Kinnoull St).

If your plans have changed since your RSVPed and you would now like a space on the bus (or vice versa), please let us know.


There is clearly sign-posted free parking at the venue if you would like to drive yourself. The venue is about a 10 minute drive from Perth city centre – scroll down this page for a map.


If you plan to get a taxi home we suggest you book one in advance. Here are a few Perth taxi numbers:

...To Perth from Edinburgh Airport

By car

Your easiest and quickest option is to hire a car. Perth is a 45 minute drive north from the airport; you just follow the signs for the Forth Road Bridge as you leave the airport and then follow the signs to Perth. If there are four of you or more and you don’t want to hire a car, it is probably worth getting a taxi. This will probably be £60-80 total so split between four is worth doing.

By bus/train

The 747 bus from outside the terminal runs every 20-30 minutes and will take you to Inverkeithing (where you can get the train to Perth) or to Halbeath Park & Ride (where you can get the bus to Perth). With either of these options you may end up waiting a very long time at small stations where there is nowhere to go. You may prefer to take the bus into Edinburgh city centre all the way to Waverley Station and get the train from there. If you get stuck waiting at Waverley at least there are plenty of shops and places to get food nearby!

Things to Do Nearby

If you are staying in the area for a wee while and are wondering what to do, here are some of our favourite day trip ideas.

With a car…

The Hermitage/Dunkeld: Drive north on the A9 for about 20 minutes until you see a large brown sign pointing left to the Hermitage. Park in the car park and go for a stunning 1.5-2 hour walk following the Braan Path signs. Then head back south on the A9 in your car for two minutes or so and turn off when you see a sign for Dunkeld. Park up in this beautiful tiny town and have lunch either in the big hotel or in a little café by the cathedral, wander around the cathedral ruin and have a poke around the shops.

Dalwhinnie/House of Bruar: Drive north on the A9 for a little over an hour and turn off when you see signs for Dalwhinnie Distillery. This drive will take you into the beginnings of the Highlands with some great scenery. Take a tour at the distillery – they pair chocolate with their whisky for the tasting at the end! When you’re finished, get back on the A9 and drive south for 20 minutes until you see the sign for the House of Bruar. This place is a great place for lunch and is fun to have a look around – they have massive clothing halls full of tweed and cashmere (we look but don’t touch) and a great gift hall which has some vaguely more affordable things. There is also a beautiful walk up the Falls of Bruar behind the shop/café bit which is worth doing.

St Andrews: A 50-60 minute drive from Perth, this is where Becca lived for her first six years in Scotland! It is a fantastic medieval coastal town with a ruined castle and cathedral to visit and lots of shops and great places to eat. There is also a somewhat famous golf course for those interested and three beautiful beaches.

Without a car…

Edinburgh: About an hour and 20 minutes on the train from Perth, this was Iain’s home for nearly ten years! Edinburgh has boatloads of things to do and could easily fill a lot more than a day, just depends what you’re up for. The Castle is huge (and also quite pricey) so could fill a day on its own and is walking distance from the train station. Princes Street and George Street are the places for shopping and the Royal Mile is a touristy but fun stretch between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. The National Museum of Scotland is about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station and is amazing and free. Edinburgh is also great just for walking around – we’re happy to go into more detail if you want to get in touch about where to go/what to do!

Glasgow: Iain and Becca went on their first date in Glasgow! An hour on the train from Perth, Glasgow has a bigger-city feel than Edinburgh but is also a great place to walk around. Again, there is great shopping in Glasgow (many would say better than Edinburgh) around the Buchanan Galleries. There are lots of museums, Kelvingrove being a good one as well as the Hunterian. There are some great parks to walk around and good places to eat.

Dundee: 20 minutes on the train from Perth, Dundee is a small city but still with plenty to do. There is currently a big redevelopment going on around the waterfront (where you get off the train) but if you can forgive them the current mess it is worth a visit. The Discovery and attached visitor centre provide a great insight into the early 20th century Antarctic explorations and is right next to the train station. The McManus Gallery is a bit further into town but well worth a visit, and there is again plenty of shopping to be done.

St Andrews: Also manageable without a car if you’re up for it – just take the train to Dundee (20 mins), walk 10 mins to the bus station and get the 99 bus to St Andrews (30 mins).
