One the five glens of Angus
Running parallel to Glen Shee, lovely Glen Isla is the furthest west of the Angus Glens and can also be reached from the little town of Alyth, east of Blairgowrie. At the southern end of the glen, five miles north of Alyth by Bridge of Glenisla, is Reekie Linn, a series of waterfalls that plunge through a deep, wooded gorge. A path leads for 200 yds from the car park and picnic site on the road between Bridge of Glenisla and Bridge of Lintrathen. Nearby is the excellent Lochside Lodge restaurant and Peel Farm Coffee and Craft Shop.
A postbus runs Mon-Sat from Blairgowrie to Auchavan. At the mouth of the glen is the tiny village of Meigle, home to Scotland's most important collection of early-Christian and Pictish carved stones. They are housed in the superb Meigle Museum. Apr-Sep daily 0930-1830.
