Why not go to one of the great events showing throughout the Perth Festival of the Arts.... This is an annual 11 day May Festival, founded in 1972, and taking place in the City of Perth in Scotland. The Festival is an independent registered charity. It covers a wide range of artforms from classical music and opera to rock, jazz, folk, dance and visual art. The Festival takes place in Perth Concert Hall, Perth Theatre and St John's Kirk.

The internationally renowned Blair Castle International Horse Trials and Country Fairis held annually in August, in the beautiful parkland surrounding Blair Castle, about 25 miles from the hotel. The event is owned and managed by Atholl Estates, who also manage the castle and surrounding land.

The first Three Day Event at Blair was held in 1989, and since then the event has gone from strength to strength, hosting the Junior European Championships in 1996, and attracting in excess of 50,000 spectators annually
