Wormit caters for everyday needs with a local shop, Post Office, hairdresser and restaurant, and has excellent sporting facilities with tennis, bowling and a boating club. In addition several golf courses and the Waterstone Crook Sports Centre are within easy reach. Dundee is just a short trip across the River Tay and has all the shops, professional services, hospitality, museums, galleries and sports facilities expected of a small city. The proximity to main road routes makes Wormit an excellent base for commuting by car north to Dundee and further afield to Perth or Aberdeen, or south to St Andrews and Edinburgh. There are regular local buses running to Dundee, St Andrews and the surrounding areas. The nearest railway stations are in Dundee and Leuchars, and Dundee also has a small regional airport with services to London.

The local secondary school is Madras College in St Andrews with a new campus scheduled to open in August 2021. Independent schools are available at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and also at the High School of Dundee. Across the river in Dundee the city hosts two universities, including the world renowned University of Dundee, while the ancient University of St Andrews is only a short commute away. Wormit offers its residents the perfect combination - peaceful countryside living while at the same time providing easy access to the bustling city of Dundee and beyond.
