Basic Function
Angus Glens
 
The Angus Glens are the lesser-known area of the Cairngorms National Park, and yet this is an area of outstanding beauty with stunning glens and glorious hills that make walking here a joy no matter what type of walking you are into.

There are five glens and all are easy to reach via towns like Arboyne and Blairgowrie, however, unlike the other regions in the park, there are no large villages or towns in the glens but instead a number of small hamlets.

The glens ahve a collection of long hill walks for experienced walkers linking with Braemar and Ballater and short family walks around forests , lochs and rivers.

Many of the walks have long historical links, namely the Queens Well in Glen mark and Hocks Road in Glen Doll, which neighbours the Corrie Fee Nature Reserve which is one of the most important reserves in the UK where rare alpine plants grow. The corrie also supports rare birds such as golden eagles and crossbills.
