Visitor attractions in Angus

We are not short of interesting visitor attractions in and around the Angus Glens. Museums, castles, gardens, distilleries and more are all waiting to be explored.

In addition to all the outdoor activities on offer, such as walking, cycling, fishing and golf, there are plenty of wonderful visitor attractions in the area. We have several villages and towns within an hour's drive, all with their own unique charm and plenty of attractions and experiences. From our local town of Kirriemuir to the vibrant city of Dundee on the Firth of Tay.

Things to do in Kirriemuir

Kirriemuir is our closest town, around a 30-minute drive away. In Kirriemuir, as well as the Gateway to the Glens Museum, you will find the Birthplace of J.M.Barrie, creator of Peter Pan, which is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Other Kirriemuir attractions include Tayside Police Museum and one of the very few working Camera Obscura in Britain.

Glamis visitor attractions

Just a little further down the road, the village of Glamis is well worth a visit. Glamis Castle, the childhood home of the late Queen Mother, is a magnificent building in a superb setting. We also have some nearby distilleries, the nearest of which is The Gin Bothy in Glamis, a four star Visit Scotland attraction where the gins are still infused by hand. Or if you prefer vodka, visit Ogilvy Distillery to find out how Scottish potatoes are tranformed into vodka.

Further afield

There are plenty of places to visit within an hour's drive of Glen Clova. Such as Montrose, where you'll find the stunning Lunan Bay beach and the historic House of Dun.

Or head to Arbroath, an attractive harbour town, famous for its haddock smokies. Carnoustie is a haven for golf and watersports.
