Forfar Heritage Trail

The historic town of Forfar is famed for its witches, who in the 17th century, apparently danced on graves and frolicked with the devil, only to be imprisoned in the town’s jail and burnt to death in a barrel of tar.

Once the seat of Scotland’s King Malcolm Canmore, you can still visit the site of Forfar Castle which was destroyed by Robert the Bruce in 1306.

This trail will take around two hours, with shorter trails around Forfar Loch and up Balmashanner Hill which will take around one hour each.
