Here are some suggestions for things to do in the area if you do not want to fish every day, are flooded off or have friends that are not fishing. For more information see the Angus & Dundee portion of the VisitScotland website or call in at one of their Information Centres.
Angus has a rich historical heritage since it has been the scene of many influential events throughout Scotland's turbulent evolution. Pictish and Roman remains abound in Angus and artefacts can be viewed at museums in the towns of Forfar and Montrose. Pictavia located on the outskirts of Brechin has a superb interactive display.
Arbroath Abbey is a major historical landmark (the Declaration of Arbroath was signed there) and well worth a visit.
The coastal history of Angus is portrayed in many museums, particularly those of Arbroath and Montrose. It is interesting to note that two original Breugels are on display in the Arbroath museum - this will save a trip to the Kunshistoriche Museum in Vienna!
Glamis Castle is one of the most popular visitor attractions in Scotland and has something of interest for all ages. There are several other country houses open to the public for a few weeks in the summer. All portray different architectural styles often with spectacular gardens for the visitor.
Non-anglers with sporting interests will find Angus offers a variety of activities. Golf courses are to the fore with a championship course at Carnoustie. Challenging courses are present in the major towns and can be booked easily.
The Glens of Angus provide ample opportunities for hill walking and photography with the general scenery attractive to artists. Botanists will find Glen Clova has much to interest them.
For those visitors who cannot resist a bargain there is Taylor's Auction in Montrose offering goods of a very high standard.
