Glenesk, some 15 miles long, can be found off the B966, Edzell/Fettercairn road off the A90. There is no through road, but possibly this has helped to protect its unspoilt character.
It is a traditional glen, divided into three privately owned estates whose main interests are sporting - grouse and pheasant shooting and deer stalking. Consequently game-keeping employs more permanent and seasonal staff than any other business. Farming, water treatment and tourism are the other areas of employment in the Glen.
The Big Idea is a group of businesses working together to support sustainable tourism in Glenesk.
