48 Hours of History

Breathtaking rolling hills of the Angus Glens, traditional Arbroath smokies, sandy white beaches on the east coastline, landscapes seeped in history; Angus has it all.



Start off your journey at Arbroath Abbey, a spectacular ruin of a once peaceful Tironensian monastery, founded in 1178.

Grab a bite to eat at Corn Kist Coffee Shop then venture on to the House of Dun, an elegant Georgian country house situated in the picturesque woodlands and surroundings of Montrose.

Enjoy woodland walks around the area and nearby Montrose Basin and keep an eye out for otters, roe deer and red squirrels.

After a dram of whisky at the Glenesk Hotel 360 Bar, and a relaxing night’s sleep, start day two off with a visit to the glorious Glamis Castle for a trip back in time. This famous Scottish landmark has been the setting for Shakespeare’s legendary Macbeth, as well as being the childhood home of many figures of royalty throughout the years. 

Head to the Montrose Air Station to learn all about Great Britain’s first operational military airfield which was established in 1913.

Enjoy a delicious meal at Glen Clova Hotel, before heading home.
