Perth Racecourse
However you travel, the last part of the journey will be by road. As the crow flies, Perth Racecourse is 3.5 km. from the city centre bus and train stations and it is a short and easy taxi ride. To get to the racecourse from Perth, you must cross to the north side of the River Tay following signs for A93 Blairgowrie & Braemar and A94 Scone & Coupar Angus.
Before leaving the Perth built up area the road forks and you take the left fork which is the A93 to Blairgowrie. Follow this road for 5 km or 2.5 miles and then turn left following the sign for Perth Racecourse. After 1 km or 0.5 miles turn left into the racecourse.

Perth by Road
From NE England take the A1 (alternative A697 from Morpeth then A68) to Edinburgh, follow the Edinburgh City Bypass (A720) clockwise then follow signs for the Forth Road Bridge & A90 / M90 to Perth.
From the rest of England, head for the M6 which becomes the M74 at the border. Follow signs for Glasgow, then Stirling then Perth and the road numbers M73, A80 / M80 and M9.
Approaching Perth, follow A93 / A94 as above.
