Are you going to be staying in Perth for some time or is this a day trip?

The area round Pitlochry and Dunkeld is very pretty with some lovely walks.

Perth the city is not in a spectacular setting, but Highland Perthshire can give you a lot of scenic splendour, and you have several train stations such as Birnam & Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl and slightly further, Dalwhinnie or even Aviemore.

You don't have to go far out of Perth to be in a totally different landscape as suggested by others - Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Aberfeldy or Blair Atholl. Also I love to walk on both Moncrieffe Hill or Kinnoull Hill - the views from the top of them is pretty special and just a stones throw from the city centre.

Near Aberfeldy, this castle is stunning

The Queens View near Pitlochry is well worth a visit

Also near Pitlochry, the Pass of Killiecrankie has great views and an interesting history

Sorry, didn't read you were travelling by train! Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Blair Castle at Blair Atholl are definitely worth a look.

Perth is a little lovely City to walk around. The banks of the Tay. North and South Inch. Scone palace and the black watch museum are all must sees. There is a lovely museum and art gallery and also the Ferguson gallery which is the home of the Scottish colourists. Don't miss the Lego brick city exhibition... https://www.perthcity.co.uk/calendar/
