Glen Lethnot

Towns & Villages

    Glen Lethnot is perhaps the least-known of the Angus glens but is worth exploring through the maze of country roads to the northwest of Brechin.

    The glen is made up of extensive grouse moor, broken only by small amounts of permanent pasture and during the growing season, the fields are abundant with crops.

    Once a haven for illicit stills and whisky bootleggers, today the glen is sparsely populated with little in the way of tourism businesses. This lack of development means that it offers a really authentic experience. The people here are friendly and tourists are very welcome but visitors should remember that this is working land, so all dogs must be kept on the lead. Walkers are asked to check for hill access before setting out on their walk.

    The glen cast its spell over the textile manufacturer Henry Coates, who donated money for the bridge which locals named Pirner's Brig in his honour.
