Best Western have 2 hotels in Angus

> See all hotels in Angus

Book a hotel in Angus, the beautiful wild county on the north-east coast of our northern neighbour, known widely for being the birthplace of Scotland. Nestled on the coastline just above the international powerhouse of Dundee, Angus is in a great location for holidaymakers. We have three hotels in Angus, the county encircling the sea inlet opposite Dundee, the city that's known for its jute, jam and journalism, as well as the boyhood home of Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie.

Town and city breaks in Angus

Dundee is an extremely rich and varied settlement to visit from your Angus hotel. The city is full of attractive open squares, bordered by the neat and ordered, tall and coloured facades of the surrounding buildings - a sight unique to this city. Dundee, from all angles, is dominated by the majestic Law, an extinct volcano with a World War memorial protruding from its peak. For history buffs, Dundee was the place where Robert the Brice was declared King of the Scots in 1309 as well as the birthplace of Desperate Dan and Minnie Minx, the former has a large and surreal bronze statue in the central town square, celebrating the publication of the first Dandy in 1937. As well as visiting the charming, quiet towns of Arbroath, Montrose and Brechin, you should certainly take a look at Forfar. The county's administrative centre is steeped in history, starting its life as a stronghold that was battled over by the Romans, the Britons and the Picts. The town is packed with several historical and valued monuments and artefacts and has several museums. For a quiet and peaceful day out, there's no better place to head from your Angus hotel.

Holidays in the Angus countryside

In the north and west of the county the topography is mountainous and sparsely populated. Head to these rugged areas for some breath-taking views and some challenging walks. The quiet village of ,strong>Kirriemuir is where JM Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, lived when he was younger. No matter the location of your hotel in Angus, you should certainly take a look here with the kids and show them the Witch Pool, the sad but historic site where the medieval misunderstood were accused and often drowned. On a more positive note, the small town is also known as 'the Gateway to the Glens' because just beyond it lies the spectacular area packed with wildlife and scenery, known as the Angus Glens. There are five of these Glens that run through the Scottish county, stretching through the sumptuous landscape until they finish at the outer edge of the Cairngorms National Park. Head up the Glenisa, Glen Prosen and Glen Clova for a gorgeous and memorable view across some of the planet's most glorious landscapes.

Attractions in Angus

At the Montrose Basin Wildlife Centre visitors can relax and enjoy watching pink-footed geese and other migrating birds through telescopes, binoculars and even remote cameras. For something much less calming and natural, why not wander through a human nasal passage at the Sensation Science Centre in Dundee. As can be expected at the birthplace of such an ancient and rich country, there is plenty to keep the history buffs interested. From your Angus hotel, check out Arbroath Abbey where the 1320 declaration of Scottish Independence was signed, freeing it from further feudal obligations to England's monarchy. In similar vein, have a look around Glamis Castle, the site of King Malcolm II's murder in 1034. Shakespeare enthusiasts may also recognise it as the residence of the eponymous protagonist in his famous work Macbeth. Book a Best Western hotel in Angus, it really is a truly spectacular destination for a UK short break.
