Things To Do in Alyth, Nr Blairgowrie
For unbeatable, unspoilt moorland, heather and grasses, the Angus Glens are within very easy reach of Laurel Bank. Mile upon mile of twisting roads await keen cyclists, walkers, drivers, ramblers and nature lovers. The Angus Glens have ten ’Munros’ or mountains over 3,000 feet to explore.
The most famous glen is Glen Clova in the valley of the River South Esk, with fantastic hillwalking conditions and eagles on Glen Doll, a glen carved out by glacial movement. Drivers love the twists and turns of the roads of Glen Prosen while Glen Isla offers visitors the opportunity to spot ospreys in spring and summer.
The nearby coastline has two places which stand out for their exquisite natural beauty. Lunan Bay is a quiet haven on the Angus coastline, hiding the beach’s history as a favourite landing spot for Vikings. The ruins of Red Castle, a 12th century castle, overlook the bay with its sand dunes and low cliffs.
See traditional fishing in action here with nets strung on poles dug into the sand to catch fish when the tide recedes. Surfing and horse riding are popular activities at Lunan Bay. Storms here clear to leave agates and gem stones on the beach.
The stunning red cliffs of Seaton Cliffs are a haven for breeding birds and a coastal path for walks with your four-legged friend. Dolphins are often seen from the cliffs throughout the year as well as butterflies fluttering in the beautiful wildflowers of the cliffs.
Dundee is the nearest city at distance of 17 miles from the cottage. A day trip here should include a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum, which showcases the best of Scottish design and also has exhibitions from designers from across the world.
It is the first ever museum dedicated to design in Scotland and is free to enter. The Royal Research Ship Discovery, used by Scott and Shackleton on their first trip to Antarctica was built in Dundee and is open to visitors. Dundee is fantastic for shopping and has an extensive range of places to eat.
From secluded beaches to cliffs rising up from the sea’s edge to ships that explorers sailed on, Laurel Bank is the perfect base for those looking for a little adventure and exploration in this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands.
Visit Dundee for shopping, restaurants and cultural sites or head to the Angus Glens with your doggy friend and the beach at Lunan Bay and breathe in the fresh air.
