Glen Esk is the longest and most easterly of the Angus Glens and, like the others, is sparsely populated. To reach the Glen take the 15 mile road, just north of Edzell that climbs alongside the River North Esk.
The traditional market town of Forfar was once the centre of the ancient Kingdom of the Picts. Now it's home to the world -renowned Forfar Bridie (a deliciously crispy meat pastry traditionally eaten by local farm workers).
Arbroath, settled in the 12th century, lies 15 miles to the north east of Dundee. The attractive historic harbour remains in action today and long sandy beaches and stunning sandstone cliffs stretch out on either side of the town.
Carnoustie is a small town on the Angus coast between Dundee and Arbroath, famed for its championship golf course. Windsurfing, canoeing and sailing are also enjoyed in the large shallow bay in the town.
The 'city' of Brechin is situated on the banks of the River South Esk in rural Angus. The cathedral (Brechin was once a city) stands boldly alongside a classic 11th century round tower - only one of two such towers on the Scottish mainland.
