Situated to the north of Edinburgh and with the ancient town of Arbroath at its heart, Angus is becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations for those seeking a holiday in the beautiful country of Scotland and with good reason for there is much in the region to see and do. From the beautiful scenery inland to the stunning east coast shoreline, Angus is a place that has romance and mystery in spades, and offers up an ideal place for the family group or the family looking for a break to take a step back from the rush of daily life.
There is more to Angus than simplicity and relaxation, however, for this is the very region where Scotland itself was born; the Declaration of Arbroath effectively created the country, and Scots to this day proudly proclaim Angus as ‘the birthplace of Scotland’ History abounds here and you can almost feel it in the glens and the towns around the area, so let’s have a look at a few prime places to visit.
Angus is a region of seven towns, each known for its own unique character and attractions, and notable among these is the sport of golf, but more of that later. Arbroath is the largest town in the area, a beautiful and very traditional fishing town famed the world over for its legendary ‘smokies’, a very tasty smoked fish delicacy, and the very quaint and pretty harbour is the scene of regular landings of fresh fish, ready to be cooked in one of the excellent restaurants of this lovely seaside town for your delectation.
The famous coastal town of Montrose with its glorious tidal lagoon, and area that is conserved as an important nature reserve, is nearby as is the pretty town of Brechin, complete with its stunning cathedral. Kirriemuir is a small town that is loved by walkers the world over as it is named the ‘Gateway to the Glens’ and offers access to some of the most sensational scenery in the UK, while for those who are of a gastronomic nature the town of Forfar is famed for a wide variety of excellent eateries of diverse range.
Back to golf, almost a national sport in Scotland, and Angus boasts Carnoustie and Monifieth, both towns with top class courses known to golfers the world over, making this the golfing holiday capital of the world.
The Glens themselves, among them the stunning ‘Munros’ – collection of ten mountains more than 3,000 feet in height – are worth the visit alone for there is nowhere else in the world where you will experience scenery as diverse and as spectacular as this, but it is for the people that Angus is worth the entry price. The locals here are proud and friendly, willing to help you find your way around their treasured part of the country, and you will leave feeling that you have experienced a welcome like no other. With a wide selection of hotels, guest houses and holiday parks to choose from, Angus makes a sensible choice for a holiday destination.
