Visit Alyth and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Alyth, Perth and Kinross, has a stream running right through the town and was created a burgh in 1488. Since the 14th century the town has manufactured woollen goods. Alyth stands on the edge of moorland and from its borders heather stretches all the way to Braemar. An indicator on the summit of the Hill of Alyth (2 miles North East of the town) gives points that can be viewed to the South.
Arches still standing in the old kirkyard are connected with the post-Reformation church, but are probably the site of an older one.
Near the town are the ruins of Bamff Castle, a Ramsay stronghold.
A spectacular waterfall, the Reekie Linn, may be seen 4 miles North on the road to Glen Isla.
Some 14 miles North East of the town is Barry Hill, where traditionally King Arthur's wife, Queen Guinevere, was imprisoned after having been taken prisoner by the Scots and Picts. All that remains of this vitrified fort are a massive tumbled stone wall and subsidiary ramparts.
