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, with agriculture and in particular the rearing of world renowned livestock, soft fruit and potatoes.
Browse our site to learn more about Abernyte. The Gallery has images of Abernyte and area from every angle, including the fascinating heritage photographs and the collection taken by Kitty Vogelsanger in the early 1960's.
The Digital Archive contains a collection of Abernyte's Valuation and Land Tax Rolls, the local Abernyte Church graveyard headstone inscriptions, interesting historical information on persons and places in the area and all are searchable by names, date or location.
We have a fine book on the development of life in Abernyte during the 1900's which you can buy from the site and if wildlife is your passion then check the Wildlife Section and the forum pages to learn more of our flora and fauna.
Interspersed with all that, is information on our Community Company and the activities of the Heritage Group. It is almost as good as visiting Abernyte in person!
