    Location description

    Alyth is a small picturesque town situated in the east of Perthshire. To the south, Perth is but 25 minutes away, to the north, lies the Spittal of Glenshee where you will find Scotlands largest skiing area, to the west, lochs and glens await, including the highest peak in Perthshire, Ben Lawers at some 1214 metres.

    Perthshire is a varied county of great beauty, with mystical highland moors and lowland soft berry fields, distilleries, historic castles, dramatic waterfalls, and is of course, a sportsmans paradise.

    Perthshire is also known as big tree country, where you will find many large specimens, including:

    the Fortingall Yew, which is the oldest living tree in Europe at 3000 years old.
    the Meikleour Beech Hedge is the worlds tallest at 30 metres high and 530 metres long. Planted in 1745, legend has it that Jean Mercer of Meikleour allowed the hedge to grow to the heavens in remembrance of her husband Robert Murray Nairne, who died at the battle of Culloden.

    There has been a settlement at Alyth since ancient times and the town is now approximately a thousand years old. Granted a Charter by King James III in 1488, Alyth was then raised to the rank of Burgh of Barony which gave the right to hold markets and fairs.

    The Queich (or Alyth Burn) runs through the middle of the town with several bridges crossing over, the oldest of which is the packhorse bridge, which dates back to the 16th century, and can still be crossed on foot.

    Alyth is also linked with Arthurian legend, as on nearby Barry Hill lies the ruin of a fort in which it was said that Mordred held Queen Guinevere captive.

    Local Facilities
    Alyth is served by a good range of shops all within a couple of hundred yards from your front door. You will find a excellent baker and butchers shop just round the corner, pubs and hotels serving quality food, fish and chip shop and Chinese takeaway, convenience and hardware stores, post office, hairdresser and coffee shop to name but a few. The town also has a Folk Museum which is open from May to September. At the Den of Alyth, which is an area of special scientific interest, you will find woodland walks and picnic areas.

    Alyth has something for everyone, whether you wish to be energetic, or just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

    Other activities

    There is no end to the type of activities open to you when staying in Alyth.

    For the more energetic you can:
    Walk the Cateran Trail, or many other local walks.
    Cycle many routes both on and off road.
    Golf enthusiasts will find three courses right on their doorstep, with around another 60 within an hours drive of the cottage.
    Skiing is available, when snow permits at Spittal of Glenshee 25 miles away.
    Fishing on the river Ericht , Isla and many more in the area.
    Horse riding can be had in Glen Isla at the Glenmarkie Riding Centre
