Angus Heritage Week

Angus_Heritage_Week_Logo_2013_199_x_99Angus is steeped in tradition and has a unique culture and heritage which embraces visual and performing arts, literature and architecture. There are many museums, galleries, historic sites and buildings to be enjoyed and whether your interest is in ancient civilisations, medieval battles, historic houses or your own family's history, Angus has a rich story to tell.

Angus Heritage Week took place in association with the popular Doors Open Days event. A variety of unusual and interesting buildings throughout Angus, some of which are normally closed to the public, opened their doors, free of charge, over the weekend of the 14 - 15 September.

This year, to celebrate VisitScotland's 'Year of Natural Scotland', a number of gardens in Angus also opened their gates as part of the Doors Open Days programme.

Walk in the steps of your ancestors

Many visitors to Angus come to the area looking to trace their family roots and to see and touch for themselves where their ancestors lived, worked, died and were buried. If you have discovered that you have roots in Angus, why not come and walk in the footsteps of your ancestors? A Tayroots Family History Day took place on 13 September at the Brechin Mechanics' Institute with a fascinating programme of talks and workshops, as well as a number of experts on hand throughout the day offering help and advice.
