The idea for today's gallery came when we saw a picture that Norrie Shand posted of the whim at Blair Castle in the FaceBook group Pictures of Perth and Beyond. It was such a beautiful picture of an amazing that we started to look around for other equally awesome pics of historic Perthshire landmarks.
In this weeks gallery, we obviously bring you pictures of castles including Methven and Huntingtower but we also celebrate the beauty of slightly more modern buildings including the newly renovated Perth Theatre and the beautiful old King James Hospital and the historic Dunkeld village square. To top it all off we have a couple of monuments, the McDuff Monument near Scone and the Kinnoull Tower which was actually built as a ruin in the early 19th Century.
Evelyn Kelly is an amateur photographer who displays her work on her own Facebook page. Small City previously featured her work in a Burn's Night gallery and you can see her photograph Afton Water here. Her photograph of Norrie Miller Walk also featured in our Wintery Perthshire Gallery.
Connor only first started photography two years ago and he has come on leaps and bounds since then. He specialises in nature photography (although his pic of the Kinnoull tower shows he can certainly turn his hand to landscapes too) and was thrilled to be short-listed for the Perth City Centre Winter Photo competition as Photography is something he would like to pursue as a career. His photographs were previously featured in our Wintery Perthshire Gallery which you can view here.

It was Norrie's picture of Blair Castle that gave us the inspiration for this gallery.
