A Year in The Life of Perthshire!

With 2017 well and truly underway we've spent the week planning, planning and planning here in the Small City office! We've also decided that there's no better way to look forward than to reflect on some of your favourite stories, features, galleries and highlights of 2016 and WOW what a year it was!

We've laughed, we've cried, we've interviewed a fox (yes - really!).  It is always tricky to sum up a year like 2016 but we hope you agree that along with some terrible sadness, there has been much to celebrate and many, many reasons to smile.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for choosing to read, follow, share, comment and laugh with us.  Please do make sure you tune in every day in 2017 for more of the same - we love having you with us.
