Things to do in Letham, Angus


Still within the land roamed by the enigmatic Celtic race - the Picts - Letham is a much visited village which attracts hundreds of visitors to its Victorian market each summer.

Nearby is Dunnichen Hill, where a famous Pictish stone was found. Once known as Nechtansmere, this was the scene of a great battle in AD685, when Ecgfrith, King of the Angles, was defeated and slain. As a result, Scotland's future as an independent country was at that time assured. Visiting this part of Angus is like stepping into the history books.
