Angus Glens

We are going to be in Angus later this month, and fancied a quick visit to one of the Angus Glens.

We just want to drive through rather than go for a walk, can you recommend which of them we would be best to visit?

    Hello @weesuz10

    Glen Cova is one of the most popular of the Angus Glens. Have you seen this Tripadvisor discussion on exactly the same topic? It is from a few years ago but it has some pretty detailed driving advice. 

    Also, have a look at the website which has some good information on the Angus Glens here. Also the Angus coastal route.

    Glen Clova is a round trip, (up the left side and down the right, usually!) but at the top there is the lovely Glen Clova Hotel for a meal stop.  Glen Esk is also a there-and-back glen but is very pretty and has The Retreat Restuarant and folk museum near Tarfside which is a lovely place to take a break from driving. On the way to Glen Esk you should plan wee stop in Edzell, a pretty village with some nice coffee shops, like the "Tweedie" or the Tuck In. Edzell Castle is well worth a visit too.  If you would like a round trip then choose Glen Isla which has some lovely scenery and brings you out onto the A93 Glen Shee road.   From there you have the choice to either go north to Braemar and Royal Deeside or south towards Blairgowrie and Perth.  Alternatively you could branch off before Blairgowrie to go over to Pitlochry on A924.
