Great reasons to stay in Perth

Alexander Residence is just a five-minute walk from Perth city centre. Perth, a historic city, enjoys an enviable reputation for its food and drink and plethora of award-winning restaurants, cafes, bistros and tearooms. Scotland’s only Two Michelin Star restaurant, Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles, is just a short drive away – where you can also enjoy a round of golf on this world famous course.

If you prefer to eat in, you’ll enjoy fabulous delis, Perth Farmers’ Markets and many farm shops.
