Follow the B978 from Dundee out through Kellas to the hamlet of Bucklershead and take the road to the left signposted West Denhead. Follow this narrow road through the rolling Angus countryside as it climbs gently taking you through a forest of conifers.
As you emerge from the trees you just have to pull into the handy car park to admire the view.
The whole of Strathmore is laid out before you. From the low lying fertile fields on the floor of the Strath stretching east and west as far as the eye can see, to the Cairngorms in the north, this is surely one of the best views in the county. It’s so worth stopping for a while to just take it all in.
