The beauty of the Angus glens is now reaching a wider audience, both at home and abroad, following the launch of a dedicated webcam.

Installed recently, the new camera in Glen Clova is one of two new devices which will help to enhance the existing coverage of some of the county’s points of interest.

A second camera has also been installed at the Carnoustie Championship golf course.

The cameras will enable potential visitors from all over the world to experience the views, wildlife, golf and even weather of this stunning corner of Scotland without leaving their chair.

With the webcams at the Signal Tower Museum in Arbroath and Montrose Basin Wildlife Centre having already proved to be very successful, the additional webcams are expected to be equally popular, especially as they both feature spectacular outlooks and each provide an insight into a unique aspect of the Angus experience.

The webcam at Carnoustie Championship is situated on one of Carnoustie Golf Hotel’s balconies and provides a bird’s eye view across the world-famous golf course, as well as the first tee and the 18th green.

It also provides views of the Golf Centre, Buddon Links and the Burnside Course and, of course, the golfers on the courses at that time.

At Glen Clova, the webcam looks across to the Glen Clova Hotel, the road leading to Glen Doll, the River South Esk and the mighty Cairngorms mountains – as well providing opportunities to spot some of the glen’s more elusive residents, including red squirrels, red deer, mountain hares and Golden Eagles.

Councillor Helen Oswald, Provost of Angus, said: “Now that we have four webcams at strategic points across Angus, it’s possible for people to explore these inimitable corners of our county from anywhere in the world.

“Hopefully, this virtual experience of Angus will whet tourists’ appetites and encourage even more of them to spend time here and discover that the reality of Angus is even better than the virtual version.”
