Head to the Montrose Basin, an enclosed estuary of the South Esk River, for 750 hectares of landscape teeming with wildlife. 

If golf is your thing, make sure you don't miss the chance for a round on Montrose Medal, the 5th oldest golf course in the world.

In Kirriemuir, get a selfie with Peter Pan before indulging in a tasty treat from 88 Degrees.

Uncover the birthplace and childhood home of Peter Pan’s creator, JM Barrie and see how his early life inspired his works.

While you’re in Kirriemuir, make sure you pay a visit to the Gin Bothy Tasting Room where you can sample some of the finest infused gins in the region.

Day two starts off with a visit to the House of Dun, an elegant Georgian country house situated in the picturesque woodlands and surroundings of Montrose.

Head to Arbroath to see the world’s oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse off the coast of Angus. The Bell Rock Lighthouse was built in 1807 and took three years to complete, but is incredible to see up close.

One of the town’s most famous products is the Arbroath Smokie. This local delicacy is a type of smoked haddock, cured over smouldering oak chips which is still made in Arbroath in a number of family-run smokehouses. 

Make sure to treat yourself to some fish and chips before heading home and eat them overlooking the picturesque Arbroath Harbour.
