Glen Clova

A valley in the Grampian Mountains of N Angus, Glen Clova represents the valley of the River South Esk which rises on the slopes of Broad Cairn near the border with Aberdeenshire and flows southeastwards into the Valley of Strathmore below the Braes of Angus. Cortachy Castle once guarded the entrance to the glen and near its head is the hamlet of Clova close to which are the ruins of another castle, the 16th century Clova Castle. Glen Clova once formed a main routeway from Angus over the Grampians to Aberdeenshire.
