The Fabulous Forfar Bridie
This is a treat not to be missed! The Bridie is a satisfying meat and onion pastie and visitors come from far and wide to sample the famous Bridie. The original comfort food, the Bridie is the true taste of home for many Angus folk around the world.
If whisky is your tipple, don't miss the Glencadam, distilled at Brechin and a connoisseur's choice. Enjoy a local dram at any time of year, by a cosy fire in good company in Autumn and Winter, or let the warmth of a Summer's evening release the hints of the Glens in the flavour. Perhaps you like a drop of water to bring out the flavour? Look no further than the fine bottled Strathmore Mineral Water, from the pure waters of Angus' Strathmore Valley.
