The main access road to Tulloch, from the east or west, is Tulloch Road, reached via the Crieff Road (A85), which bounds it to the south. It is also accessible, albeit less directly, from the Dunkeld Road (A912), which bounds it to the north-east, via a modern housing development. It is bounded to the north-west by the A9.
Tulloch has a small shopping precinct, Tulloch Square, located just off Tulloch Terrace. Tulloch Primary School, founded in 1969, is located on Gillespie Place, itself located off Primrose Crescent, a main thoroughfare which, upon merging from Tulloch Road, circumnavigates Tulloch's oldest residential area before joining up with Tulloch Road again just before its western junction with Crieff Road. Perth's crematorium is located on Crieff Road.
In addition to the new housing development in the north-east of Tulloch, homes have also been built to the north and west. These are in addition to the first development (Sandeman Court) that went up in the 1980s in the valley behind the primary school, near the railway siding at the bottom of the hill. Between the housing and the railway siding is Perth Lade, which is sourced from Low's Work, a weir on the River Almond south of Almondbank, and empties 4.5 miles (7.2 km) away into the River Tay, near Smeaton's Bridge, via the city. A walking path runs parallel to the lade. Ladeside Court, a cul-de-sac off Fairfield Avenue, takes its name from the body of water.
From certain parts of Tulloch, views are afforded of the hills beyond Scone to the east, including an obelisk on the 279-foot (85 m) summit of a hill near Muirend. To the north, the Grampian Mountains can be seen.
McDiarmid Park, the home of Perth's professional football club, St Johnstone, is located at the western edge of Tulloch, in close proximity to the crematorium, while junior club Kinnoull are based at Tulloch Park on Tulloch Road.
