Where You Will Learn – Alyth, Scotland
The village of Alyth
The old village of Alyth, with 3000 inhabitants, is located in Perthshire in the East of Scotland. Situated in the heart of a richly agricultural valley, it offers all the obvious attractions of the countryside, walking, cycling, climbing, sight-seeing. It is within easy access to the ancient town of Perth and the University city of Dundee. Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow are 1 1/4 hours away: all these culturally rich cities are accessible by public transport and have so much to offer visitors.
Alyth has much to offer English Language learners with pubs, restaurants, tennis courts, shops, golf courses and a little museum. There is also a public library. You can access beautiful country walks directly from the house: we are also on the Cateran Trail with 105 km of scenic walking.
Being a small village makes Alyth a very friendly place to learn English. You are guaranteed to make friends and will have lots of opportunities to practise speaking English. People have time to talk to you and will make you feel welcome.
There is a bus stop about 100m away which takes you to both Dundee (City of Discovery) and Perth. We are centrally located with good roads. Glasgow 1 1/2 hours: Edinburgh 1 1/4; Aberdeen 1 hour.
