Alyth is a town 4.5 miles north-east of Blairgowrie. The cemetery is located to the left as you enter the village. Approx grid ref is 247 478 on OS sheet 53



The entrance can be easily mistaken for a private house. There is a tree lined road as an approach to the cemetery.

Also in Alyth town centre is a memorial to local casualties of the Boer War - whether or not their family plots are at Alyth Cemetery with any other information I do not know.

Alyth's most famous WW1 veteran was the late Alfred Anderson of the Black Watch who lived to well over 100 until his death a few years back.
