We are a traditional & personal matchmaking agency available throughout Perthshire.

Dating in Scotland – Perthshire

Perthshire is a historic county and registration district in Central Scotland. Geographically it borders the counties of Inverness-shire and Aberdeenshire in the north, Angus to the east, Argyllshire to the west and Fife, Kinross-shire, Clackmannanshire, Stirlingshire and Dunbartonshire to the south.  

The county of Perthshire is known as the ‘Big County’ or ‘The Shire’ due to its size and shape, it is the fourth largest county in Scotland. Perth has 6 principal towns Pitlochry, Dunkeld, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Blair Athol and Kinloch Rannoch. The county town and administrative centre is the city of Perth, one of just 6 locations with city status in Scotland, along with Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.  

The population of Perthshire is just 151,000, even though it’s known as the ‘Big County’ and so finding partners is much more difficult than on average within the UK. Particularly if you have suffered a breakup, divorce or bereavement and are looking for a life partner and love for the second (or multiple) time around. The city of Perth has just 48,000 inhabitants.  


What We Do

Most people these days are only familiar with online dating or dating apps on their smartphone and are unaware that the art of personal matchmaking has been around in Great Britain for centuries. Since medieval times most towns and village locations would have had their own ‘matchmaker’ who was responsible for bringing people together and it may surprise many to learn that the first professional dating agency (known as a matrimonial bureau in those days), first opened its doors in London as long ago as 1705.  

So personal matchmaking is not anything new and the origin of Country Partners can be traced back more than 40 years. We are happy therefore that rural dating and using your own personal matchmaker to find love, has never been as popular as it is today. Particularly in the UK’s most rural locations such as Perth and Perthshire.
