Alyth is a small town in rural Perthshire overlooking the countryside of Strathmore. This is an area rich in farming, which is both an inspiration and resource for the Cateran Ecomuseum and its latest exhibition, Farming Fit for the Future, adapting agriculture in a changing world.

The content in the Cateran Ecomuseum hub aims to reconnect people to heritage and traditions that are hidden or at risk, demonstrating their practical relevance for more regenerative ways of living and highlighting the importance of community resilience.

Enjoy a wealth of pictures and objects reflecting life as it was and is in and around Alyth and the wider Cateran Ecomuseum area.


There is free on-street parking.


There is a seated stair lift to upper floor of the museum.
