There are many other walks in Glen Esk a short drive, for example Loch Lee and the Queens Well which was erected and named after a visit from Queen Victoria after her husband Prince Albert died.
Four miles to the next nearest village of FETTERCAIRN is a whisky distillery of the same name and well worth a visit to take a guided tour of the whisky process and taste their lovely product.
EDZELL is also fairly close to the coast as well with mostly long beautiful golden sandy beaches. There are a number of interesting fishing villages along the way to some favourites being JOHNSHAVEN, CATTERLINE, ST CYRUS, LUNAN BAY and AUCHMITHIE. A lovely cliff walk at ARBROATH is most enjoyable and all are within a 25 mile radius from Edzell and well worth days out.
ARBROATH for those interested in history which is also on the coast and where the signing of the Declaration of Scottish Independence took place in 1320 at Arbroath Abbey. The Stone of Destiny used in the crowning ceremony of Kings and Queens was stolen from Westminster Abbey, London on Christmas day in 1950 and was found on the High Alter of Arbroath Abbey on April 1951 after a long and arduous search by various police forces is also of historic interest.
THE BELL ROCK LIGHTHOUSE built by Stevenson sits 11 miles out to sea off Arbroath and the Signalling Tower for the Lighthouse which housed the 4 lighthouse keeper's and their families is now an interesting museum about how the Lighthouse was built and what life was like for the keepers, as well as local business in the town.
ARBROATH is also renowned for having a large fishing fleet in the past and is home to the famous ARBROATH SMOKIE which is even sold in Harrods. It is classed as a delicacy made with haddock which are hung in pairs and slowly smoked over wood chips. This method originated from Demark and the Scandinavian countries when some of these people came here to settle. Some of the smoke houses near the harbour are happy to show visitors how they do this on certain days.
