Go for a splash at the stunning beaches found along the coast of the region. Feel the sand in between your toes on the golden sands of Montrose beach or bathe on the award-winning beach at Broughty Ferry. If it isn't such a sunny day, why not visit Dundee's new swimming pool which has a family pool and flumes to keep the kids active and entertained?

The Scottish weather is unpredictable and it is not uncommon to have four seasons within one month. So as well as our glorious outdoor scenery, there is never a shortage of things to do with plenty of all-weather visitor attractions.

Dundee & Angus is full to the brim with award-winning visitor attractions. Dundee is the place to experience the polar climate with Discovery Point, and the challenges that faced Captain Scott in his trip to the Antarctic a hundred years ago; or learn about the fascinating history of the old Dundee jute mills at Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works. Alternatively, just a short distance away, see yourself as others might see you - through innovative and hands-on exhibits which explore the five human senses at Dundee Science Centre.

Located in rural Angus, the stylish Pictavia visitor centre provides the chance to uncover the lives of some of Scotland's ancient people - the Picts. Located in the grounds of Brechin Castle Centre and Country Park, young and old will have a great day out enjoying the children's adventure playground, farm animals and nature trail.
