Brechin

Towns & Villages

    The 'city' of Brechin is situated on the banks of the River South Esk in rural Angus.

    Standing boldly in Brechin is the cathedral (Brechin was once a city) and a classic 11th century round tower - only one of two such towers on the Scottish mainland.

    In ancient times the Brechin area was populated by the Picts. Visitors can learn the fascinating story of this Celtic race at the Pictavia visitor attraction, which boasts a mixture of interactive exhibits, replicas and actual artifacts. Pictavia is set in a countryside park at Brechin Castle which has an adventure playground, ornamental lake and nature trail.

    On Sundays during the summer, the echo of the Caledonian Railway wakens the town when the locomotives carry passengers between the Victorian Brechin Station and nearby Bridge of Dun.
