Location

Forfar, Scotland, United Kingdom

The traditional historic market town of Forfar was once the centre of the ancient Kingdom of the Picts in Angus in Scotland. Now it's home to the world -renowned Scottish delicacy the Forfar Bridie (a deliciously crispy meat pastry traditionally eaten by local farm workers) with two big rival original bakers still in the town, Saddlers and McLarens who both claim to have made the original and still the best bridies. Only one way to solve it is try one from each bakers and make up your own mind.

For an insight into Forfar's history, art and industry, visit the Meffan Gallery and Museum. Here you can wander through time in an old cobbled vennel, peer into a knockmaker's workshop and see linen being woven. The Meffan also tells the grim history of Forfar's place in the 17th century witch hunts. If horticulture is your passion, then you can't leave the area without a visit to Pitmuies Gardens, with its roses, herbaceous borders and woodland walks. Forfar and Angus has a number of beautiful walks which we provide guides for.

Don't miss the monthly farmers' market on the 2nd sat of the month set in the local cattle market which is enjoyed by visitors and locals alike throughout the year with a wide range of gifts and locally produced food and drink. Forfar has a vibrant town centre with many independent shops and cafes both food and gifts, some nice pubs and restaurants, Forfar also has several medium size supermarkets.

In the wider Angus/Tayside/Perthshire area there are amazing walks, climbing, & cycling routes. We provide contact details for a local Forfar outdoor shop who hire bikes for the day if you dont fancy bringing your own bikes. In our guide book we also suggest some lovely car drives or cycle routes to places around the local area.

We are only a 10 minute drive from the stunning Glamis Castle and Glamis village where the Queen Mother grew up. Close to the beautiful House of Dun, 20 minute drive to the beautiful towns of Arbroath where you can sample the world famous Arbroath smokie and wander around its romantic fishing harbour, also close to Montrose, Brechin, & Carnoustie. Its only a 10 minute drive to the beautiful town of Kirriemuir which was the home of JM Barrie the author of Peter Pan with a museum in the town in his old house, and if you have younger kids there is an amazing play park paid for by the JM Barrie Foundation designed to resemble the Neverland pirate boat. (Our kids love it). Kirremuir was also where Bon Scott from AC/DC came from with a statue to him in the town.

You are in the Strathmore valley which is at the foot of the Angus Glens with amazing scenery, walks, climbs and cycling routes, and close to the Cairngorms mountain range and Scottish Highlands with arguably some of the most beautiful mountains in Scotland with in the wider area. Forfar has several outdoor shops if you need to get some last minute walking or climbing esentials. We are also close to some beautiful beaches with in 30 minute drives great places for picnics, one of the best being the beautiful Lunan Bay.

Some great fishing is in the area both rivers and lochs, with some of Scotlands most famous fly fishing locations with in 1 hours drive. We can recommend a local fishing shop in Forfar to help you. We recommend a local company about a 20 minute drive away who organise clay pigeon shoots for all expertise levels. Highly recommend if not tried before. For the more adventurous we also recommend a local adventure company who organise wet suit swims in local rivers and lochs.

While being in the heart of the Angus countryside Forfar is also still close enough to explore cities like Dundee (15 minutes drive) & Perth (40 minute drive), and Aberdeen (45 minute drive away). Or other Angus towns such as Brechin, Montrose, Carnoustie, Monifieth, Broughty Ferry, Cupar Angus, Arbroath, Kirriemuir, (all about 15 to 25 minutes drive away).

If golf is your thing we are close to a number of famous golf courses such as Carnoustie golf course which hosted the Open golf Championship in July 2018, and Forfar has its own highly rated 18 hole golf course. Forfar golf course claims to be the oldest 18 whole golf course in the world which is still open, and was designed by the famous Old Tom Morris and updated by the just as famous James Braid and often mentioned as one Scotland best hidden gems that can compete with some of Scotland more famous courses, and playing fees are excellent value. Then of course we are still only about a 45 minute drive from the home of golf St Andrews across the Tay Bridge in Dundee and a short ride into Fife and you don't even need to know anything about golf to appreciate walking around this beautiful, historic, and romantic old town.

If you are staying in the area to attend a wedding we are close to a number of beautiful wedding venues such as Guthrie Castle, Forter Castle, Fingask Castle, Piperdam, House of Dun, Colliston Castle, Forbes of Kingennie, Carnoustie Hotel, Glamis Castle, and many more across Tayside, Angus & Fife.
