General

  • Family park between Kirriemuir and Glamis in the Strathmore valley
  • Easy access to the Angus Glens, Angus and Glamis Castle
  • Bar and restaurant by the site entrance for lunches and evening meals

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. 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 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 toilets and showers, and a coin-operated laundry. The independently-run Armstrong's Bar and Restaurant just at the entrance to the park 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.

Nice site in a good location shame about the location of some pitches01/06/2021

    The location and size of the site. The town of Kirriemuir was a short drive away. The staff were friendly and helpful. A lovely restaurant located at entrance to site was very convenient. Nice woodlands walk around site.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the pitch that we had was directly under a tree which shaded the sun. Most of the pitches were not under trees, however. Also water and bits from tree battered the caravan at night making it a very restless and noisy night. Our caravan and car ended up a very big mess with bird droppings.

    Very friendly and immaculately clean site. Toilets well kept and water and waste facilities were located in convenient distances to the pitches.
    Even although the site was busy the location of the pitches gave the impression of privacy. The restaurant and bar on site were also excellent.
    The only downside was the lack of Wi Fi facilities on the site

Directions

Local attractions

Make the Macbethian Glamis Castle your first stop; as well as inspiring the Bard, the 14th-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 12th-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. Also zoom along to the cottage of JM Barrie’s birthplace, 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).

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.

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (1.5 miles)
  • Carnoustie (15.0 miles)
  • St Andrews Links (22.0 miles)
