Four miles west is Glamis Castle the ancestral home of the Boyes -Lyon family of which the late Queen Mother was a member. She was raised and grew up at Glamis before she later became the wife of King George the Sixth. The Castle also hosts an annual “prom” which includes performances by the Scottish National Orchestra playing classical music accompanied by firework displays etc.
The loch supports a variety of bird life and has sailing facilities. Visitors to the area can stay in the caravan park which is unique as it is practically in the town itself and is easy walking distance to the town centre. The other loch is Rascobie Loch which is popular with anglers as it is well stocked with trout and is approximately three miles out of town.
The area is steeped in Pictish history. The “Standing Stones” at Aberlemno give testimony to Pictish existence and culture. The Meffan Gallery and Museum is a fountain of knowledge in that regard.
