Highland Perthshire has fantastic scenery, but the infrastructure and road surfaces in a lot of the towns and cities is simply no longer fit for purpose. As a result the streets in the centre of Perth are emptied of people, those cycle lanes the local council promised years ago never materialized, coupled with potholes on virtually every city centre street, the rail service north of Perth towards Inverness has been reduced so much one cannot really call it a service anymore, and tourists now prefer other locations.
This then raises a question about the local council's knowledge on how to improve the infrastructure, or how they intend to promote tourism in Perth?
