    The sheer size of how this used to be is not to be underestimated. The Abbey itself is currently closed to visitors due to potentially falling masonry, but the visitor centre is beautiful. I didn't get the name of the lady at reception but she was lovely and knowledgeable.

    Visited yesterday and the base has an impressive array of planes, cars and items from the both world wars. Impressive historic information on the base. Enjoyable visit and staff who are volunteers were super friendly. Highly recommend. We looked for Dog friendly things to do and this was definately worth a visit. They have some great plans for development in the future and are receiving a new plane this week to restore and add to their collection.

    The first thing that struck us about the House of Dun was the very warm and friendly welcome from staff. We took a guided tour and were impressed by the knowledge the guide showed and her entertaining talk. The house is a gem, full of quirky historical objects and fascinating stories. The walled garden is also a beautiful spot to visit.

    It was a fabulous half day trip, the grounds were beautiful and the journey through the castle was one steeped in history. The gift shop was also a delight to wander round and the staff throughout the visit were wonderfully friendly.

    We had a great time here, not just our wee grandson! There's so much to do and I even ventured in for a paddle on the beach. The park itself has plenty to keep children amused and there's a snack bar with hot food and ice cream. The railway wasn't operational when we were there, but I'm sure children would love it - Papa was very disappointed not to see it working!

    The park's right next to the beach so a hop down there is compulsory and we were lucky to have great weather for it.

    Another attraction for the children is the number of trains passing on the nearby main line. There's also loads of parking spaces and the whole park was very clean and tidy with people respecting Covid regulations.

    Definitely a must-visit for families.

    Excellent staff and volunteers - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Their covid precautions were also excellent. And of course the birdwatching is wonderful here.

    This really is a unique and interesting local museum , housed within the distinctive Georgian building ( built 1813) , which was once the signal tower for the famous Bell Rock Lighthouse, 11 miles out at sea. There are lots of displays and fascinating information related to the lighthouse itself , and also other cased exhibits covering Arbroath’s fishing and industrial history, plus maritime paintings and a photography exhibition room.
    If you have any questions just ask the very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable lady custodian, who is obviously passionate about her museum. And to top it off - entry is free.

    Park at the Glen Doll Car Park & Ranger Base (£2 all day) and follow the green trail to the end where you will be rewarded with a spectacular view! If you are feeling energetic follow the trail through the magical corrie up to the Cairngorm Plateau. A truly magical place.
    At the time of this review, the trails are currently closed due to extensive storm damage and the rangers advise not following the trails at present. Updates are available on the Nature Scot Corrie Fee website.

    Visited for the first time today. It did not dissapoint. Nice to see it being invested in. With a brand new car park also overflow car park. Spaces for coaches. And electric charging points for cars soon to be installed. We picked up a visitor leaflet from the Office. There is also leaflets in storage boxes. As you head towards the trails. Will definitely be back. Could not recommend this enough. We walked along the beach towards Montrose. The views were breathtaking. Plenty of signage detailing all the various walking trails.

    Visited here on Sunday as a Xmas present from my husband. Very welcoming staff and we had room all to ourselves lovely and warm. Gins all set out as well as our ploughman's platter. Husband was driver so gins all for me. We watched the dvd taking us through the 3 gins pausing as and when we liked, nice and relaxing with Amy popping in to see if we were OK. Afterwards over to shop to purchase some gins with more tasting as well. Husband got ti pick 2 miniatures and soft drink as his drivers pack. All and all a wonderful experience, very friendly staff and lovely setting. Would certainly recommend to anyone who likes their gin.👍

    Unusually interesting walled garden makes this worth an hour or so of your time.

    Some of the more interesting sculptures require climbing a spiral staircase which, surprisingly given that some of the old stone steps are uneven, has no bannister or even a rope down the centre to hold on to.
