Angus Glens, Forfar and Kirriemuir


Angus Glens walks

This part of Angus offers a landscape of contrasts. The fertile vale of Strathmore is wide and fertile, with some of Scotland's most productive arable farmland; the area is also known for growing soft fruits. Towns such as Forfar, Brechin and Kirriemuir thrived on this agricultural background, whilst the area is also home to Glamis Castle, one of the region's premier attractions.

North of the Strath the landscape quickly changes, with foothills soon giving way to extensive moorland and finally mountains of real Highland stature. This wild land is penetrated by a series of glens of varied character - the Angus Glens. Glen Clova is the best known, steep-sided and majestic, whilst Glen Esk in the east is long and enchanting. To the west are Glen Prosen and Glen Isla - less visited perhaps but equally deserving of an exploration on foot.
