General

Out with the old and in with the new: Lochlands Caravan Park, on the edge of the historic market town of Forfar, was once an old Angus farm complete with historic horse mill, and has now had a full facelift to transform into a family-friendly and snug pitch-up spot for exploring Scotland’s east coast and the gorgeous Angus Glens, or getting some shut-eye on a stopover between Dundee and Aberdeen.

Much of the work has focused on getting the pitches and roads into shipshape condition, with work also carried out on the Lochlands shop, bar and restaurant in 2012, and the shower and toilet block has been fully upgraded. There’s been a laundry room added too, and the new and improved version of the park now has lashings of lighting and a 24 hour warden on site.

The spacious and serene pitches at Lochlands are handstanding and come with electric hookup; there’s also a washing up area and facilities for disabled guests. Pets are welcome and there’s a play area on site for mini campers.

There are buses outside the park entrance to Forfar and Dundee; the nearest supermarket is a mile and a half away and there’s a 24 hour Tesco within two and a half miles.

Local attractions

Fancy a bridie? Of course you do…Hither thee to nearby Forfar, home of Scottish pastry the bridie which has been featured several times on the small screen and which was mentioned by Angus chap of taste JM Barrie in his memoir of childhood Sentimental Tommy. Then brush away the crumbs and move on to the museum and art gallery the Meffan Institute, crammed with historical exhibits including Pictish stones and Roman artefacts uncovered nearby.

This area of Scotland is rich in pict-ings about the ancient tribe; the award-winning Pictavia Visitor Centre at Brechin Castle will tell the curious all they need to know and give info on other Pictish trails in the area. For other history, the fourteenth century Glamis Castle is well worth a look: it was where Princess Margaret was born, where the Queen Mum tottered about as a child and was the inspiration for Shakespeare’s spooky Macbeth – be sure to declaim ‘Hail to thee, thane of Glamis!’ while cackling in a witchlike way once you’re there.

The National Trust for Scotland manages JM Barrie’s Birthplace in nearby Kirriemuir for history and literature geeks who just can’t grow up, and there are castles abounding in Angus: have a wander around thirteenth century Dundee Castle as a prelude to some very twenty-first century shopping and clubbing for starters.

Just west of Forfar is the Forfar Loch Country Park for woodland, grassland and lochside walks among foxes, otters and stoats; the Sidlaw Hills and Loch of Kinnordy RSPB nature reserve are within a short drive, as are the Munro Hills for fishing, hiking and shooting.

The five fingers of the Angus Glens are a main draw for visitors to this side Scotland, with endless opps for photography, walking, birdwatching or just breaking out the watercolours – who cares if you can’t paint? The ranger service at Glen Doll has group and guided walks throughout the year, and there are some estates in the glens which offer deer stalking, shooting and fishing in season.

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (3.9 miles)
  • Carnoustie (10.9 miles)
  • St Andrews Links (19.2 miles)
