Directions

Road Directions

Den is from the Scots word meaning wooded glen and this area features many walks of varying length through mixed open woodland, along the Alyth Burn.  Many of the paths are suitable for wheelchair users and buggies.

A designed Site of Specific Scientific Interest, the Den of Alyth is notable for being naturally seeded and directly descended from the original deciduous woodland that once covered great swathes of lowland Scotland.

A variety of wildlife is regularly spotted among the oak, ash and birch trees, including tree creepers and great tits, while dippers and grey wagtails live by the waterside.

Three car parks are spread out across the glen and a picnic area and small playground is available at the southern end.

For more information, visit the Blairgowrie Visitor Information Centre.
