Visit Craft in Dundee and Angus

Angus lies in the east of Scotland, with Aberdeenshire to the north and Perth and Kinross to the west.

Tourists visit the area to explore the beautiful Angus Glens, five glens that fan out through the countryside and finish at the outer edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

Many head to Carnoustie and its famous championship golf course, while others explore the coastal towns and villages such as Arbroath where the Declaration of Arbroath, which asserted Scottish independence, was signed.

Dundee, Scotland’s fourth largest city, is in the south of the region on the north bank of the Firth of Tay. It has two universities and was famously built on the ‘three Js’ - jam, jute and journalism.

At the start of the 20th century, more than 50,000 people were employed in over 100 mills across the city, producing jute. You can learn more at the Jute Museum @ Verdant Works where the story of jute is explored and brought to life in a beautifully restored mill.

A £45 million project is now underway to open the V&A at Dundee, on Dundee’s waterfront. The museum will have more than 1,700 square metres of gallery space and will focus exclusively on design, including displays devoted to outstanding Scottish design.
