Forfar Loch Country Park

Angus | Forfar | Loch & park | ★★

[View east over a partially frozen Forfar Loch]

If you're a frequent user of the A90 dual carriageway, the closest you might have got to Forfar is the roadside McDonald's. The country park shields town from road; little more than a fence separates loch from lorry fumes, so the western end of the park can be a little noisy. Crazy golf and pitch 'n' putt probably only open in high season, but the 4 km wander around the loch (left by a melting glacier at the end of the last ice age) is good at any time of year. Look out for ospreys, kingfishers, roe deer and otters depending on the season, and also the newish memorial for the Forfar Witches, with 22 spots remembering each of the women put to death during the 1660s witch trials.
