About the walk:
We start the walk on good paths through the post glacial Alyth Den. This is very scenic with several Sites of Scientific Interest. It is also the source of the logs and debris that flooded Alyth last year! From the Den we ascend the southern aspect of Alyth Hill and pick up part of the Cateran Tail before descending into Alyth itself. We finish with a refreshment stop in the Alyth Hotel now recovered and renovated from the floods.
