Fantastic Angus and Dundee Regions

Between Aberdeenshire and the Perth/Kinross region, Angus and Dundee offer rugged coastlines and soft rolling foothills. A great place to unwind and spend a holiday, Angus and Dundee offer a variety of sports, sights and activities.

Dundee is the smaller of the two, but that doesn't mean it has a shortage of sights and attractions. The Broughty Castle and Museum is a 15th century fort that has displays on local history, wildlife, armor and a whaling exhibit. Discovery Point is another popular attraction. Here you will find the RRS Discovery - the ship built to take Captain Scott to Antarctica - where sound effects and exhibits will help you to get a feel for the voyage. If you prefer to leave history in the past, you might try the Downfield Golf Club or Kingennie Fishings. Camperdown Country Park is another great option as it provides a wildlife center, a mini amusement park, tennis courts, a child play area and boating. There is a Camperdown golfing facility nearby and you can hire horses in the town, which can be ridden through the park.

Angus has coastal attractions, easy slow paced walks or harder hill-walks for those who prefer a bit more of a challenge. You can explore the glens on horseback or pack in your bicycle for either quite cycling or harder mountain biking routes. There are several fishing, fly fishing and angling spots in Angus and you can also take a more passive view of the fish by scuba diving, skiing or canoeing. You might also like to try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or take a trip to the Cairngorms National Park.

For the most part, the natural beauty of the regions seems untainted and calm. It is a great place to explore and you will find not only ocean views and rolling hills, but also ancient forests, rivers and purple heather moors. You might even be fortunate enough to spot some of the natural wildlife. Certainly, Angus and Dundee have a lot to offer.
