is a city in central Scotland, located on the banks of the River Tay.
It is the administrative centre of Perth and Kinross council area and the historic county of Perthshire.
The royal castle (on or near the site of the present multi-storey car park adjacent to the new council offices), was destroyed by a flood of the Tay in 1209, one of many that have afflicted Perth over the centuries.
It was never rebuilt and Perth was protected at this time only by partial walls and an inventive water system consisting of a Mill lade from the River Almond which divided and flowed to the North on one side and the West and South on the other, eventually joining the Tay.
The city was occupied by Jacobite supporters on three occasions (1689, 17).Perth became known as a 'capital' of Scotland, due to the frequent residence of the royal court.Royal Burgh status was soon given to the city by King William the Lion in the early 12th century.The presence of Scone two miles (3 km) northeast, the main royal centre of the Kingdom of Alba from at least the reign of Kenneth I mac Ailpín (843–58), later the site of the major Augustinian abbey of the same name founded by Alexander I (1107–24), enhanced Perth's early importance.Perth was considered the effective 'capital' of Scotland, due to the frequent residence of the royal court.
As part of a plan to make Perth a permanent English base within Scotland, Edward III forced six monasteries in Perthshire and Fife to pay for the construction of stone defensive walls, towers and fortified gates around the city in 1336.
