Brechin is famous for its tall eleventh century round tower which is one of only two such towers surviving in Scotland. The tower originally stood alone, but is now part of Brechin Cathedral.

Visit Brechin and explore its rich and fascinating heritage including the steam trains at the Caledonian Railway and discover its links to the Harley Davidson family at Netherton Cottage, their original home.

Take a short drive to the beautiful village of Edzell where you enter through the distinctive ‘Dalhousie Arch’.
