Angus has a coastline that offers unspoilt scenery with gentle, rolling foothills taking you up to the edge of the Cairngorms National park.
This is the spot to play golf on world class courses, walk, fish and simply drink in the wide open spaces. The Eastern edge of the North Sea offers sandy beaches, cliffs and shoreline that abound in maritime heritage.
There are many towns and villages to explore here like Arbroath, famous for the Abbey dating back to the twelfth century and Inverkeilor and Montrose where a 2000 acre, tidal basin provides refuge for migratory birds.
Add to this walking in the glens, country picnics and city shopping and a quick tot or two at Crieff for a nip of Scottish Whisky and it's a perfect place for a really active but relaxing holiday!
