We also show you many other sites of great interest and top it all with a birds eye view from the top of the Dundee Law, our extinct volcano! Following our tour of the City we head into the beautiful Royal Angus countryside, a place of legends, where dreams come true and we'll pass by the grand royal residence, Glamis Castle, currently home to the Earl of Strathmore and his family.
