Celebrating the county’s heritage

Next month, the history, culture, places and people of Angus will be celebrated across the county during Angus Heritage Week.

The heritage week’s programme, which runs from September 4 to September 11, has been published and lists all events taking place, including Kirriemuir Festival of Music and Song, exhibitions, family history workshops, opportunities to view rarely-seen documents and talks by highly-regarded local historians.

There will also be guided walks to, and around, local places of interest, and a night-time tour of one of the most haunted places in the county – Glamis Castle.

Angus Heritage Week also incorporates Doors Open Days, which provides free access to participating historic, contemporary and unusual buildings over the weekend of September 5 and 6, sometimes providing a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes.

This year, several buildings are taking part in Doors Open Days for the first time, including the camera obscura gifted to Kirriemuir by Peter Pan creator JM Barrie and JM Barrie’s Birthplace.
