Discover some of the most atmospheric of Scotland's unspoilt places. The Angus Glens offer superb walking amongst moorland colours, the scents of heather and grasses, and fresh pure melt-water in the high burns.
The Angus Glens include ten 'Munros' (mountains of over 3,000 feet), and miles of narrow twisting roads offer great delights and challenges for cyclists, drivers, hill walkers and nature lovers alike.
Arguably the most beautiful of the Angus Glens is Glen Clova (north of Kirriemuir). At the head of Glen Clova is Glen Doll, where ancient narrow roads and footpaths take you into the heart of Scotland's Cairngorm Mountains.
The less well-known Glens are also a delight. Hidden away behind a maze of country roads northwest of Brechin, lies Glen Lethnot, where the local stream was used by illicit distillers who secreted their stills in the corries. The track is known today as 'the Whisky Trail'.
Another hidden gem is Glen Prosen (north of Kirriemuir), where the narrow, twisty road on the western side is a real driver's road - sweeping from bend to bend.
Look out for ospreys in Glen Isla in spring or summer, spot eagles in Glen Doll, or visit a Royal stopover at Invermark Lodge and Loch Lee in Glen Esk, where Queen Victoria was decidedly amused!
