The Tayside/Perthshire region
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 sportsman's paradise.
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 Scotland's largest skiing area, to the west, lochs and glens await, including the highest peak in Perthshire, Ben Lawers at some 1214 metres.
There has been a settlement at Alyth since ancient times and the town is now approximately a thousand years old. Granted a Chartern 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 parkhorse 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.

"Cosy Cottage beautifully renovated and ideally situated"
We had a 3 night stay at the cottage. The owner met us and showed us around on our arrival. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard. It was also spotlessly clean. It is close to shops,… More

"Mixed pleasures in Olive Grove Cottage"
The cottage was friendly and reasonably clean. A perfect place to make trips to the mountains or the sea. Alyth has everything you need. Downsides: the cottage is dark and packed full of heavy furnitu… More
Our cottage is spotlessly clean. All the cleaning is done by ourselves and we have very high standards. We also meet and greet all our guestes and show them round the cottage and explain everything before we leave. The cottage is not dark as it faces south, so has the sun all day. The decor is light with solid light oak furniture, I'm sorry if that is not to everyone's taste, but we do have more than ample pictures of every room at different angles on the website, so you can see exactly what everthing looks like before you stay.
As the cottage is nearly 200 years old, yes the stairs are steeper than modern day houses, and the walls are squint, hence the twin bedroom door does not open fully, but you certainly do not have to crawl in.
A full set of towels( bath/hand/facecloth) are provided for each guest, which is the standard that is normally given for up to a week's stay, if more are requested, they certainly can be provided, as we are more than happy to accommodate all our guests.

Wonderful warm welcome by the owners and generous welcome package. Excellent cottage with everything you could want including the log fire. Little bit awkward getting into the twin bedroom but manageable
