Session with medal events
7 August 2023
Brilliant biking, breathtaking scenery, rolling hills, sandy white beaches, and so much more.
With vividly beautiful countryside that’s home to Aberdeen Angus beef, Arbroath Smokies, Peter Pan and the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships Gran Fondo Time Trials, you’ll always have something to explore in Angus.
And we didn’t even mention the watersports, hillwalking, fishing, food & drink, and, of course, some of the best cycling in Scotland.
A series of truly special and tranquil valleys, the Angus Glens are a paradise for people who want to get away from it all. They each have their own feel, so they’re all worth exploring, if you have the time and energy.
But if you have to choose, Glen Clova is one of the most loved. At its head you’ll find Glen Doll where ancient footpaths take you into the heart of the Cairngorms.
There are many splendid castles and historic houses in Angus, but perhaps none so fine or esteemed as the majestic Glamis Castle.
Not only was it the ancestral home of the Earls of Strathmore, it was the inspiration behind Macbeth, the childhood residence of Queen Elizabeth and the birthplace of Princess Margaret.
There’s something for every cyclist in Angus, from family friendly routes to challenging twisty climbs.
Some local favourites include the picturesque Arbroath Harbour to Barry Mill, Monifieth to Carrot Hill and back via Monikie and Newbigging, and Keptie Pond to Letham Grange via St Vigeans nature trail.
