Our View

Secluded but convenient for the A90, this charming pub retains much of its character from when it was a drovers’ stop-over. Three shapely dormer windows project from its slate roof and there’s an attractive vaulted interior. The bar’s regularly changing real ales might include Northern Light from Orkney, while a fine collection of malts waits alongside. A typical meal might start with Arbroath smokie tartlet and continue with pan-roasted loin of venison.

About The area

Discover Angus

It is said that before God sent the earth spinning through space he patted it and thus his fingers created the five beautiful Glens of Angus. Kirriemuir is the gateway to the little Angus Glens, valleys which stretch from the low farmlands of Strathtay into the moorland of the Grampians and the fringes of the Cairngorms. All five glens – Glen Clova, Glen Prosen, Glen Esk, Glenisla and Glen Lethnot – offer great hill walking, with a choice of gentle strolls or more challenging longer traverses.

The Angus coast is the jewel in the region’s crown, and the beaches here are some of the best on Scotland’s East Coast. From the seaside town of Arbroath you can enjoy a stunning walk along Seaton Cliffs, with an amazing wall of red sandstone keeping you company as you stroll beside the North Sea. Carnoustie, between Dundee and Arbroath is a popular seaside base, as well as a famous golfing centre. Away from the spectacular coastline, the lush Vale of Strathmore lies at the heart of Angus and is the setting for Glamis Castle, where the Queen Mother spent her childhood.
