The exhibition is housed within the Birnam Arts & Conference Centre, an art gallery, library and cafe housed in a Victorian building recently benefiting from an award-winning modern refurbishment.

The Private House Stay's Guide


The town of Perth lies at the southern end of a district that extends North along the A9, through Dunkeld and Pitlochry to Inverness-shire. For the purposes of this guide the area North of Pitlochry is defined as Highland Perthshire and the area East of Dunkeld and South of the Cairngorm national park is defined as East Perthshire. The A9 dual-carriageway road is the main artery for traffic to the North but is only an hour from Edinburgh and makes Perthshire one of the most desirable areas of Scotland in which to live. The Annual Pitlochry arts festival gets worldwide aclaim, while the area has a wealth of History, Heritage and visitor attractions as well the scenery, waterfalls, wildlife and crafts that can be found across the Highlands. Perthshire contains many of Scotland's best country House Hotels.
