Alyth

The ancient parish of Alyth is located in the Perth and Kinross area of Scotland along the  southern hill slopes of  the Forest of Alyth.  Alyth was an important market town and a thriving textile town in the 1860s.


Bestowed with beautiful scenery, Alyth is a popular tourist destination and a handy base to explore the Blairgowrie area. There are a range of  holiday accommodation, shops and places to eat out. Some of the interesting attractions  include the Packhorse foot-bridge spanning the Alyth Burn built in 1550 and  the Mercat Cross dating back to 1607. You can see the remnants of a large vitrified fort on Barry Hill believed to be the place where Queen Guinevere was imprisoned by the Pictish King Mordred. The folk museum has a rich display of artifacts and exhibits that shed light on the heritage of Alyth.

Alyth is a very pleasant village with an amazing amount of golf courses for the size of the village. Located 5 miles North East of Blairgowrie.
