A designated 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.
The ruins of the old church, known locally as The Arches, stand in a graveyard in a prominent position at the top of the town.
The current church building, completed in 1839 to the design of Edinburgh architect, Thomas Hamilton, dominates the skyline of the town.
