Caterthun Forts, near Edzell


The White and Brown Caterthuns are two massive iron age hill-forts on two neighbouring low hilltops on the fringe of the Angus glens. They can both be visited by short walks from a layby on a road between the two, offering fine views both towards the glens and over Strathmore.
