We moved to Scotland just over four years ago and we chose to live on the outskirts of a village not far from Perth.
It's a perfect base for exploring. The cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are about an hour away and Dundee is only a half an hour drive.
For a day on the coast - St Andrews is only about 40 minutes and the East Neuk of Fife is less than hour.
Days out walking - Perthshire has plenty to offer, for all abilities. Plenty of opportunities to try canoeing or other waterbased activities. We can be up in Aviemore in around 90 minutes too.
There are plenty of nice wee towns and villages to explore too. It really is central.
The M90 skirts the outside of Perth, as does the A9, making it really easy for roadtrips. There is a train station in the city centre too.
There are some stunning golf courses too, and your husband won't have to look far. Perth can lay claim to having a inland island golf course. The King James VI course is on an island in the river Tay. There are many others to choose from too.
The area has a good variety of castles, museums, classes/clubs etc too, with plenty of events throughout the seasons.
I hope this helps a wee bit? Check out my blog
