General

  • Fishing loch on site
  • Within easy driving distance of beaches and Cairngorms National Park
  • Reception lounge, games room and playground

Angling for some Angus fishing? Pitch up at glorious Glenesk Caravan Park and cast off at its loch in the middle, stocked to the gills with mirror and common carp, tench and roach – then pack your rod for salmon and trout fishing on the nearby River North Esk.

Not angling for Angus fishing? Leave the fisherfolk to it and settle down to species spotting from the loch shore, wander around the unspoilt woodland of this wildlife haven park or tackle the (b)reams of hill hikes within walking distance.

Sandy beaches, city shopping, the Cairngorms National Park and the Scottish Whisky Trail are all within driving distance – once you’ve wrestled your other half from the rod, of course…

If the weather decides not to acknowledge that you’re on holiday, Glenesk has a reception lounge with telly and an indoor games room for you to lounge around/get competitive in; when it’s sunny, the well-equipped park playground will keep the kids occupied while you get on with the serious business of fishing/lying by the loch spotting red squirrels.

Park amenities include a heated loo block, hot showers (a small charge applies for the use of the shower), covered dishwashing area and separate laundry room. The small tuck shop sells basic essentials and camping gas, and can arrange to have your morning papers and other bits and pieces delivered over the weekend.

Please note

A charge of £0.20 applies for the use of shower.

    Beautiful setting & good facilities

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about the actual site, however there were loud bangs caused by bird scarers. This occurred approx every 30 mins between 6.30am & 9pm. This noise terrified our dog which unfortunately spoilt our weekend.

    Glenesk is a great little site, suitable for everyone.

    Facilities were very good, clean and in good working order. Staff were friendly and helpful and the site was peaceful and secluded with nice walks, a play park and a cafe onsite.

    We will definitely be back.

    Disliked: 

    It's over a mile to Edzell so maybe a little far to walk for the young and elderly.

Local attractions

Several walks and hills are within easy walking distance; lace up your boots and walk forth, or ask the Glenesk Caravan Park for recommendations for walks, actitivies and attractions nearby and around the area.

Glenesk is about 13 miles long and has hill walks for all abilities from the faint-hearted to the confidently striding and all sorts in between. The Hill of Rowan walk from the Tarfside car park should make a peaceful compromise as it’s a doable four and a half miles long and easy to navigate given that the huge memorial of the top of the Hill of Rowan can be seen for miles around. (Of course you know to bring a map and compass anyway.)

Tougher types can try the Loch Lee and waterfalls circuit walk, a steep ten miles around Loch Lee, up past the Falls of Unich and the Fall of Damff and back down via the Shank of Inchgrundle.

Make some time for a stroll to Edzell too, lined with nineteenth century buildings and called the ‘jewel of the glens’ for its prettiness – in this part of Scotland, we think that’s quite a moniker. The start of the main street is marked by Dalhousie Arch: pass under here to browse plenty of interesting shops, antique establishments, cafés, tearooms and restaurants.

From the village, walk about a mile to the red sandstone ruins of sixteenth century Edzell Castle, from the Gannochy Bridge to watch salmon leap at the Rocks of Solitude or to the golf course, one of several in the area.

Castles, historic houses and gardens abound in Angus and neighbouring Aberdeenshire, most open to the public from Easter onwards. Glamis Castle, setting of the Scottish play, has guided tours, exhibitions and an Italian garden, and the Queen’s pad Balmoral is an enviable look at the lives of the royals and part of the Aberdeenshire castle trail (of which there are a mighty seventeen).

Dun’t miss the eighteenth century and award-winning House of Dun, set among Victorian gardens and woodland, and managed by the National Trust of Scotland which has its Hutchison (paintings) and Stirling (furniture) collection here, along with smashingly ornate interiors, a model theatre display and courtyard buildings to nosey around.

Even better, it’s within walking distance to the Montrose Basin Local Nature Reserve and its 50,000 or so migrating geese, regular wildlife events and guided walks, and three miles from the family-friendly sands of Montrose Beach.

Finally, fancy some paintball? Ally forth and battle, deep in the Edzell Woods at Bedlam.

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (19.8 miles)
  • Carnoustie (23.7 miles)
  • Balmoral Castle (25.0 miles)
