Easily miss this hip new basement bar on Queen Street. Externally there’s little to suggest the presence of the bar at all. The signage reads Panda & Sons Barbershop – there’s a charming bit of backstory about it being run by a family of pandas – but once inside and you’ll find yourself in a cool and quirky speakeasy- style space with walls of vintage books, old lamps, gramophones and other era-appropriate knickknacks adding to the atmosphere as well as some panda-themed artwork.

A beautiful and historic small town by the River Tay in Perthshire. It's just on the edge of the Highlands and the views are really impressive. There is plenty to see in the town and pubs by the river for a lovely lunch - there are also plenty of walking routes if you're feeling more ambitious. It's easily accessible by train, but you'll need to book in advance (the day before is fine) to get the best fares and plan your times carefully, as the trains are not that frequent.
