The community was asked what they like most about living in Alyth!
“Such a friendly community-oriented village. I’m born and bred and love Alyth.”
“Welcoming, community-minded, historic, with enough innovative and creative people with ‘can-do’ attitudes to make me feel we can find a way through the turbulent times we face and come out the other side stronger, more resilient.”
Locality and Connectivity
“Its proximity to the countryside for walking.”
“It’s within commuting distance of Dundee and Perth, and has Blairgowrie nearby for bigger shops and high school – connected by regular bus.”
“Alyth is a quiet location with good access to rural and woodland areas.”
“It has all the essential amenities – shop, post office, cash machine, cafes, pubs, doctors, pharmacy, primary school, Chippy!”
“I like the selection of shops and the friendly, caring people.”
“The town is surrounded by attractive countryside and particular scenic areas such as the Alyth Den and Hill of Alyth.”
“The centre is pretty with the burn running through and the huge effort made to put up baskets and tubs of flowers.”
“How much outdoor recreation is right on our doorstep – walking, cycling (road & trail), outdoor swimming, climbing.”
“Good friendly community, walks, activities throughout the year.”
“Community spirit. So many not-for-profit organisations running activities.”
