Each of the five Angus Glens has a character all of its own and the frequent visitor will always find something new to delight in.

Munro Baggers will be happy to know there are 10 mountains 3000 ft and over in the Glens, just waiting for them to explore while staying at the Glen Clova Hotel.

The South Esk rises high in the Grampian Mountains above the Glen Clova Hotel and drains the wilderness areas of the Glen Doll before winding it’s way to the North Sea at Montrose via Montrose Montrose Basin. Salmon are present in the river when the season opens on February 16 but they are slow to pass upstream in low temperatures due to the dam at Kinnaird (near Brechin) and other obstacles further upstream. Once the temperature rises to six degrees and the water levels are suitable, fresh fish quickly run upstream. The middle reaches usually enjoy their sport around the middle of March.
