Perth is a dynamic small European city and, with projected growth of 25% by 2030, is one of the fastest growing in Scotland.

The city is home to the largest campus of the University of the Highlands & Islands and several corporate headquarters, including energy giant SSE, Aviva, Stagecoach and Highland Spring. Perth is within an hour’s drive of seven of the UK’s top research universities and has one of the highest percentages of graduates in the workforce of any Scottish city.

With significant strengths in food and drink, tourism and clean technology, Perth is primed for significant international investment opportunities, supported by the council’s tailored “open for business” approach.

The city is also a great place to live with more places to eat and drink per head of population than any other Scottish city. Surrounding Perthshire is also the UK’s leading destination for adventure tourism.

Perth offers all of the strategic benefits of being centrally located in Scotland but without bearing the high land and property prices associated with other major cities. Businesses here enjoy a quality business environment in a beautiful setting along with unrivalled quality of life with excellent transport links to the rest of the UK and beyond.

Perth is a highly attractive option whether locating, relocating or investing.

Perth is one of Scotland's fastest growing cities with a population growth forecast of approximately 10,000 over the next 15 years
