Activities or just taking it easy, there’s plenty to see & do in and around Montrose

Montrose is an historic seaside town with a population of around 15,000. It is located almost midway between Dundee and Aberdeen. This makes it an ideal base for visiting the small fishing villages and towns dotted along the coast, or for a trip inland to discover the beautiful Angus Glens.

Montrose Basin Wildlife Centre and Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre are a few minutes drive from the hotel and House of Dun – a National Trust for Scotland Adam mansion - lies just outside the town.  Glamis Castle is around 24 miles to the south and Dunottar Castle is around 24 miles to the north of the hotel.

Walkers and cyclists can enjoy the roads and tracks in and around the town or travel a few miles to the beautiful Angus Glens for a more scenic experience.
