Hotels in Edzell
Originally called Slateford, the village of Edzell is one of the most historically fascinating places in Angus. An undiscovered gem, this quiet Scottish settlement offers plenty of scenic walks, along with a charming local castle and some of the best golfing opportunities in the region.
A Georgian town with a long history
The prevalence of Georgian architecture in Edzell may lead you to believe that it was founded in the early 19th century. In fact, this is only partly true. Today's village is indeed a planned Georgian town, with landmarks such as the Dalhousie Arch emphasising its continued importance throughout the Victorian period. The original village, however, goes back much further and was located near Edzell Castle.
Edzell Castle still stands to this day, and is one of the main attractions in the local area. Built in red sandstone in the 16th century, it was home to the Lindsay family for many years. The castle is perhaps better known today for its spectacular and unusual gardens. Visitors are often taken with the carvings on the garden walls, which depict a variety of cultural and religious symbols from the time.
A local landscape ideal for walking
The area around Edzell is perfect for walkers of all levels of ability. Featuring local beauty spots such as the Rocks of Solitude, the trails around the village take in some of the best scenery that Angus has to offer. Be sure to stop off at the Gannochy Bridge over the River Esk on your travels, too.
A Scottish sporting tradition
One of Scotland's main attractions is, of course, its golfing heritage. Edzell Golf Club is the perfect destination for those who want to relax with a few rounds during their stay. Built in 1895, this course offers 18 holes of golfing bliss.
