Perth Wins Competition to become Scotland's 7th City!

Perth will become Scotland's seventh city after winning a UK competition marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The town based its bid on Perth's history as Scotland's first capital. Its city status was removed in 1975 as part of a local government shake-up.

Perth was one of 25 towns across the UK which applied for the civic honour in the jubilee competition.

Two other UK towns, Chelmsford in England and St Asaph in Wales, will also become cities.

There are 66 cities in the UK - 50 in England, five in Wales, six in Scotland and five in Northern Ireland.

Scotland's other cities are Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Stirling.
