Perth’s Fair Maid’s House

September 25, 2023 by Catriona Anderson

Ever wondered what secrets lie within Perth’s oldest house? 

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society are offering an exclusive tour of the Fair Maid’s House, one of Perth’s most iconic and historic buildings, on Thursday 5th October.

The tour will be guided by RSGS volunteer Graham Ferguson- a very engaging speaker who is sure to captivate with his knowledge and passion of our history and mission. 

This unique experience promises to leave you inspired and informed. 

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society has created a unique tour around the beautiful Fair Maids House of Perth. The Fair Maids House contains exhibitions that explore the origins of the society, the history of Perth and the essence of geography (from the formation of our world to the social impact of disease). Throughout this exclusive tour you will see some extraordinary pieces of geographical and exploratory history, the remnants of the 600-year-old Black Friars Monastery and discover the work that the Royal Scottish Geographical Society has done and the global impact they have had. 

You will be guided through the building by volunteer public speaker Graham Ferguson who will discuss the history of the building and the society before taking you on a guided tour of our exhibitions, culminating in our spectacular Explorers Room. If geography, history or exploration inspires you, then this tour has an abundance of all three.
