Did you know, pop pickers, that Shakespeare’s ‘the Scottish play’ (whisper: Macbeth) has Glamis Castle of the Angus Glens as its setting? Or that nearby Kirriemuir is where JM Barrie, of Peter Pan fame, was born? Bookworms won’t be bard with the literary allusions around Drumshademuir Caravan Park, set between Kirriemuir and Glamis in the fertile Strathmore Valley and with heaps of history and hiking highlights to take in too. And a bit of rock: Kirriemuir was also the birthplace of AC/DC singer Bon Scott, and there’s been a ‘Bon Fest’ in the town to commemorate him since 2006…
But back to the park... Under new ownership from 2012, Drumshademuir is open all year round and has touring pitches with electric hook-up, with some tent pitches also available for family camping. If you’re bringing the kids, they might not be all that interested in the history and culture of this part of Angus, but they’ll enjoy swinging about the outside play area on site or taking the dog for a wander along the woodland walk.
Pitches at Drumshademuir are all close to the spick and span facilities: there are free hot showers, washing up areas, disabled loos and showers and a coin-operated laundry. For hearty fare, the independently-run Armstrong's Bar and Restaurant is just at the entrance to the park and dishes up good-sized bar lunches and evening meals as well as takeaways; there are also several other eatery and bar options within a couple of miles off site.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A90 (Aberdeen to Dundee), take the A94 east towards Glamis/Coupar Angus. Follow the A94 for approximately five miles to the village of Glamis. Turn right onto the A928 towards Kirriemuir (passing Glamis Castle). Follow the A928 for approximately three miles, Drumshademuir Caravan Park is located on the right-hand side in the hamlet of Roundyhill.
Make the Macbethian Glamis Castle your first stop; as well as inspiring the Bard, the fourteenth century castle is the family home of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne and was the childhood home of Lilibet Senior the Queen Mum and the birthplace of Princess Margaret. Historyheads will find plenty to see in Angus, from exploring the lives of the Picts at the Pictavia Visitor Centre in the grounds of Brechin Castle to browsing around the twelfth century Arbroath Abbey.
Next up should be painting the town red at Kirriemuir: the sandstone ‘Little Red Town’ is the gateway to the Angus Glens but worth making a stop at too – there are plenty of Pan-like attractions to see, including a statue of Peter Pan among the town’s cobbled streets and the cottage of JM Barrie’s birthplace on Brechin Road, with a living-willow crocodile, Pirates’ Workshop and flying in the Peter Pan Experience to try (and original manuscripts and Barrie’s writing desk on view for the literary lot).
Barrie presented the town with the camera obscura on Kirriemuir Hill, where you can see panoramic views of the countryside; the hill also has the local cemetery including Barrie’s grave. Then make your way to the Angus Glens, which are part of the Cairngorms National Park and which reach from Kirriemuir to the foot of the Grampian Mountains for hiking, mountaineering and skiing; Kirriemuir Den with its walks and waterfall is also a popular spot.
With Drumshademuir separated from the River Tay and Dundee by the Sidlaw Hills, there are heaps of walking and nature spotting opps within reach: as well as the leg-stretching Sidlaws themselves, the nearby Munros are a base for hill walking, fishing and shooting and there’s an RSPB nature reserve at Loch of Kinnordy with screeching amounts of wetland wingers to watch. Coastal walks around the Arbroath cliffs will take you to the award-winning beach at Montrose and the sands of St Cyrus as well as to red sandstone rock formations all around – look out for the infamous De'ils Heid, or Devil’s Head, which can be climbed if you’re feeling energetic.
