Angus Heritage Week dates and aims set

Have your say

The third Angus Heritage Week will take place across the county from September 5 to 12 and will again celebrate Angus’ unique people, places, natural environment, culture and traditions.

The week of heritage-related activities and special events opens with a family history day at Dundee & Angus College in Arbroath and also features the annual Doors Open Days weekend on September 6 and 7.

There are several additions to the Doors Open Days programme, including Denfind near Monikie, where a disused Victorian quarry has been transformed into one of Scotland’s top stone producers. Many old favourites, such as Arbroath’s previously top-secret Royal Observer Corps Post, Airlie Monument and Logie Schoolhouse, one of the most complete surviving examples of a mudwall building in Scotland, will also be welcoming the public. In addition, the HOPE Garden at Arbroath and Dunninald Gardens near Montrose will be throwing open their gates.
