SCBP, Perthshire's only dedicated online magazine, was established in the summer of 2014 by Nicola Martin.
The idea was born out of a desire to show-off. Show-off this great wee city that is punching well above its weight. Perth has some of the biggest, loudest and brightest personalities I know. People that are going about their daily lives doing things that are amazing or interesting or just a bit barmy. It has arts, culture, comedy, sports, music and an outdoor playground unlike any other. It also has a nice bridge, I know.
We're not Glasgow or Edinburgh or Dundee. We're Perth. We're small, compact and bijou. We host international sporting events and open mic days in the pub. We love our team so much we painted the town blue and white. We know strangers by name because they are our cousin's best-pal's daughter. We are just ever-so-slightly eccentric in so many different ways we don't even realise how marvellous we are.
Perth and its People are vibrant and alive with an energy that's built on the funny, quirky and fabulous. The Small City with Big Personality.
If you like what you read then please do share SCBP with your pals, sign up for news, like us on facebook, follow us on twitter.... or come and say hello when you see me drinking tea or scoffing down burgers in one of our many fine establishments.

The web genius behind Nicki's random ideas, Anna built the site, maintains it, adds to it, makes it talk to google and play nicely with social media. Fully bespoke and super clever behind the scenes, she has created #SCBP with longevity in mind (and gin in hand!)
