This community website brings you information and news on Abernyte and area.
Set in the Carse of Gowrie in east central Scotland, this area is worth a visit if you have never been and you will be slow to leave once you do!
Abernyte lies in the hills to the north of the Carse of Gowrie. The Carse is a fertile strip of land between Dundee and Perth and between the River Tay in the south and the Sidlaw hills to the north. Sheltered from the cold north winds, the incredibly rich farm land has shaped the communities both in the Carse and nearby. This distinct landscape stretches between Perth and Dundee. Upland heath succumbs to wooded valleys and waterfalls which eventually become pows (drainage ditches) flowing into the Tay. A diversity of hedgerows and treelines line the fields. The area’s redwoods were the first to be introduced into the UK by John and his father Patrick Matthew. Hidden away are ancient orchards with unique local varieties; fabulous for their burst of colour and in enticing bees and birds.
