Glen Esk’s Invermark Castle will be opened up to the public during Angus Heritage Week, which runs from September 13 to 20.

Sitting at the top of Glen Esk, the imposing 16th century ruin has been shroud in mystery and myths.

On Saturday, September 14, the owner of the nearby House of Mark will be offering a free tour of the castle, along with a short talk on the history of the one-time home of the Lindsays - once one of the most important families in the area.

Other buildings open to the public for tours, visits or Doors Open Days, will include Forfar’s Castlehill and Restenneth Priory, Arbroath Abbey, and a historical tour of Montrose High Street.

“Angus Heritage Week provides a range of wonderful opportunities for local people and visitors to discover more about the fascinating bricks and mortar of our county,” said Councillor Mairi Evans, Angus Council tourism spokesperson.

“So many of our buildings – old and new - have the most amazing stories to tell.”

Many of the events taking place during Angus Heritage Week provide a rare chance to visit places that are normally out of the public eye.

Week Event Programme, which also includes details of all Doors Open Days venues, is available at leisure centres, ACCESS offices, libraries, museums and tourist attractions across Angus (or download from
