Forfar is the main town in the region of Scotland called Angus. Forfar is located about 13 miles north of Dundee and 17 miles west of Montrose. It stands at the heart of Strathmore, the broad and fertile agricultural valley which cuts right through the centre of the region. The town saw itself at the centre of many conflicts during the middle ages. It was completely destroyed in 1665 by Oliver Cromwell then subsequently rebuilt.
The town lends its name to a local delicacy known as the Forfar Bridie, a type of pasty invented in the town in the late 1800s that’s still a popular treat today. Still associated with food production, Forfar is the home of Strathmore Foods, most famous for their Scotch eggs.
