Alyth Bridge

16th C bridge across Alyth Burn

In the southern foothills of the Grampian mountains lies the small town of Alyth. Centred around a Market Square, a 16th century stone bridge and the clear running Alyth Burn, it is home to about 2000 inhabitants, a strong, friendly community who take a pride in their town and its history. And none more so than Bill and Eileen McBain who welcome guests to stay for bed and breakfast in their home which they converted from the remains of an old stable barn in 1980.

Locally there are many excellent restaurants and pubs, two very close by. There are approximately sixty golf courses within one hours drive, three of these in Alyth along with a flood-lit driving range and Golf Academy. The coast is 45 minutes.

Once here you may prefer take time to walk around Alyth itself, visit the gift shops, speciality craft shop, hardward and butcher shops or walk through the valley of natural woodland, water and sandstone cliffs on the edge of the town known as the Den O' Alyth and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). The walk has become so popular that a video has been made of it.

Eileen has written several leaflets and produced a DVD collating history and information about the locality and both she and Bill are immensely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area.
