Mr Scott died when his black 4x4 left the unclassified road between Dunning and Auchterarder about 8.20am. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Mr Scott’s family are understandably upset by their sudden loss and have said that he will be greatly missed. They do not wish to make any further comments and have requested that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.”
He added: “Enquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident are on-going and Tayside Division would appeal for anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their enquiries to contact Tayside Division on 101. As with all sudden deaths a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
