Across the rich landscapes of the Angus Glens to the region’s rugged coastline, Dundee & Angus provides shelter to some of Scotland’s most important native and migrant wildlife species. The best chance to spot some of the region’s abundant wildlife is by visiting a nature reserve or by following any of its recognised nature trails. At these you can expect to spot some spectacular birds including ospreys and huge colonies of migrating wildfowl, as well as otters and rare red squirrels.
