Glen Esk Folk Museum

Angus | Tarfside | Museum | ★★

The road into Glen Esk, north of Edzell, winds for 15 unhurried miles into the heart of the Cairngorms. Tarfside is the capital by default - it's pretty much the only settlement, with a tiny school but no shop. All the Angus Glens are lovely, but Glen Esk probably offers the widest variety of attractions. Perhaps the best place to start is at the interesting museum, documenting Glen Esk and Angus country life. This former shooting lodge is owned by the community and - despite the remote setting - acts as an important hub for local life. The cafe is pretty decent too!
