Dundee & Angus

Combine the country's first UNESCO City of Design, the countryside that brought us Aberdeen Angus beef, Arbroath Smokies and Peter Pan, and you’ve got Dundee & Angus! This beautiful, historic and vibrant region is now well-known now thanks to the brilliant V&A, but did you know that things to do in Angus include watersports, hillwalking amongst the glens, historic houses, and delicious food and drink?

Take time to explore the majestic landscapes and market towns of the Angus Glens, filled with lucious walks through the heather or even climb a Munro. There are dozens of towns to explore, including Kirriemuir where J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan, was born.
