Some good walks already mentioned.... One other I could punt for is Ben Tirran, the highest point in a super area, you can make that day as long or short as you want, but the circuit around Loch Brandy and Loch wharral is a peach....

Hunt Hill. Lovely waterfall on the approach. Good views, and just driving up there at this time of year is great...if all the leaves don't get blown off the trees in the next couple of days.

A 3rd vote for Hunt Hill. The Loch Lee area is outstanding. That climb up the waterfall is great and Craig Maskeldie is a beauty.

Driesh & Mayar for the ascent/descent of Corrie Fee.

I also liked the ridge-like summit of Mealna Letter (aka Duchray Hill).

Would second Craig Maskeldie (combined with the nearby waterfalls). In fact, probably my favourite walk to date in the Angus glens.
