There are no towns or villages in the Angus Glens within the Cairngorms National Park but there are small communities scattered across the glens. Glen Clova is the best known of the glens, and an excellent place for walking and wildlife. Towards the top of the glen, Glen Doll branches on to the west, right into the heart of the mountains and the Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve. The Angus Glens Ranger Service have a Ranger Base in Glen Doll which is open to the public.
Glen Esk is the longest of the glens reaching as far as lonely Loch Lee and Glen Mark. The Queens Well is situated in Glen Mark and is a popular place to visit on one of the many fine walks while The Retreat hosts a local heritage exhibition. Glen Isla is the western-most of the Angus Glens, its upper reaches forming part of the dramatic Caenlochan area. The main community lies further south spread along the B951 road.
Quiet Glen Prosen is good for walks and wildlife, look out for the cairn dedicated to Wilson and Scott, the Antarctic explorers. Wilson lived in Glen Prosen, and it was here that Captain Scott planned his polar expedition.
