A museum charting the history of transport and motor vehicles is set to anchor a new tourism destination near Perth, Scotland.

The museum, in West Kinfauns, will have a focus on the impact Scotland has had on transport and will showcase how vehicles have evolved.

Among the stories included in exhibitions are set to feature those of David Buick (founder of Buick), William Davidson (co-founder of Harley Davidson), and Preston Watson from Dundee, who – according to local legend – took the first powered flight 10 months before the Wright brothers.

A rotation of temporary, season displays will focus on Grand Prix and racing cars driven by Scots, such as Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Dario Franchitti.

The museum is at the heart of a £34m development, which also includes a hotel and log cabins.

The project is being proposed by plant machinery company, Morris Leslie, which has its headquarters at West Kinfauns.

A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) has now been submitted to Perth and Kinross Council.

Morris Leslie, chair of Morris Leslie, said: “This development provides the perfect opportunity to maximise the potential of the location and draw tourism to the area on a local and national basis.

“Well-connected to the surrounding road network, including the A90, this premium destination will provide a gateway to Perth, to the surrounding area and beyond.

“The proposed scheme is of a scale that can support additional development and is ideally placed in terms of transport connection. It is also in a beautiful location with wonderful views.”
