Map of the area

If it's inspiration you are seeking, look no further than Angus & Dundee. From the magnificent peaks in the glens to casting your eyes up the coast, your feet will be itching to step out. And there's much to see on your travels.

Down town, up hills, Angus & Dundee will put a spring in your step - all year round. That is what must have attracted the Picts and inspired Peter Pan's author, J.M. Barrie. That is why people keep coming back. There's definately something in that wonderful clean air.

We might for example suggest you play one of the 24 great golf courses in Carnoustie Country which includes Carnoustie Championship Course itself. scene of Paul Lawrie's heroics in the 1999 Open Championship.

You can choose between swimming or surfing, boating or batting, a horse saddle or a bicycle saddle or, for that matter, outdoors or indoors. Cinemas, theatres, restuarants, nightclubs and sports and leisure centres.

Angus & Dundee

Dundee the city of discovery
11th century saw the first recorded reference to the settlement of Dundee, although probably around 6500 BC the first Dundonians appeared in the area. 1191 saw King William the Lion granting the first Royal Charter but in 1298 Edward I of England destroyed the town.  In 1309 Robert the Bruce was proclaimed King of Scots in Dundee. However Dundee was left in ruins by Richard II and in 1547 the town was besieged and damaged by the English fleet. In 1557 Dundee was fined for supporting the Reformed church and was again burned by the Marquis of Montrose in 1645. 1651 say the siege by General Monck where 1200 citizens were massacred and the town and all shipping was destroyed. In 1673 the town gets a coat-of-arms.  So all in all a pretty historic and violent place and a rich historical heritage for the visitor.

Did you know that all the covered wagons that trailed across America were covered with Dundee-made tarpaulin?

Angus, the land of the mysterious Pictish people whose intricately carved stones still guard their secrets. History comes alive at Glamis Castle, childhood home of HM The Queen Mother, and at the 12th century Arbroath Abbey, whilst the dramatic North Sea coast contrasts with the timeless beauty and peace of the Angus Glens.
