Edzell is a historic village in the Angus region of Scotland situated six miles north of Brechin between Strathmore and the Howe of the Mearns. The original settlement in the area was Slateford, identifiable by the graveyard and the ruins of Edzell Castle, c1840 the local laird, the Earl of Panmure, built the new village of Edzell a mile further west. This planned Victorian village is easily recognisable by the Dalhousie Arch which straddles the road at the entrance to the village, erected in 1887 in memory the Earl and Countess of Dalhousie. Edzell is spacious with a wide main street, 19th century buildings, tea-rooms and interesting shops, it is a popular tourist resort with hotels, B&Bís, self-catering accommodation and places to eat. Attractions include the ruins of the 16th century,square-towered red-sandstone Edzell Castle, where Queen Mary held privy council in 1562.
