The Five Glens

Five Glens Consultancy draws its inspiration from the 5 unique and distinct highland glens which collectively are known as the Angus Glens.

Running in the same prevailing direction, the 5 glens (Glenisla, Glen Prosen, Glen Clova, Glen Lethnot and Glen Esk) give the impression of fingers of a hand stretching from the fertile lowlands of Angus, through the beautiful countryside full of wildlife and breath-taking scenery, up towards the high mountains which form the southeast edges of the Grampian mountains and the Cairngorms National Park.
