Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Brechin stands on the South Esk River in Angus, within fifteen minutes drive of the sea and sandy beaches eastwards or alternatively fifteen minutes drive northwards to the Angus Glens and the foothills of the Grampian Mountains. For many this is the true Scotland, heather clad hills, castles, unspoilt beaches, clear mountain streams and rivers, abundant wildlife, clean fresh air and traditional Scottish hospitality.

In addition there are good road, bus and rail networks to Edinburgh, St.Andrews, Dundee, Perth, Aberdeen and Glasgow. However to gain full advantage of this beautiful part of Scotland a car is your best option.
