Aberlemno should be on the ‘must see’ list for any visitor to Angus. This small village is home to four beautifully carved stones, the work of the mysterious Picts, who lived here about 1,500 years ago. Just outside the village a layby offers a superb view across the strath to the hills beyond.
The landscape is a patchwork of fields growing crops like potatoes, cabbages, and corn. Angus has some of the best farmland in Scotland, and it must have been valued by Pictish farmers just as much as today’s. Perhaps they stopped to enjoy this view as they tended their fields.
