Angus Historic Kirkyard Trails Leaflet
Angus Council has just launched an Historic Kirkyard Trails leaflet. Scottish kirkyards are a unique part of our heritage as the last resting places of our ancestors. Gravestones are documents carved in stone, containing a wealth of genealogical information in names, dates, places and relationships. Angus is home to many old parish kirkyards set in delightful rural scenery, whilst others are located in the centre of the burghs they have served for generations.
For visitors interested in finding out more about the people of Angus, the historic kirkyards of Angus have been grouped together into seven trails to choose from. To follow each trail thoroughly will take more than one day so visitors are encouraged to enjoy a short break and discover the many other attractions on offer in Angus.

The Angus Heritage project is supported by the European Regional Development Fund, through a Rural Tourism Business Support Project which aims to deliver an innovative, collaborative, partnership approach to improving tourism products in the East of Scotland.
