Glorious 12th

Early in the month of August the Angus Glens are full of coveys (family groups) of Red Grouse. This is the time to try for the classic image of Red Grouse in the purple heather. Now towards the end of the month the Grouse are much harder to see due to the hunting season which brings a flow of people to the area. To be honest all is not lost as the birds that hang out by the road are reasonably safe and tame.
