A hidden gem tucked away in the rolling hills of Angus, Glen Clova Hotel is a favourite with hillwalkers and sightseers looking to experience the natural beauty of Scotland. That’s not all it has to offer, though – it’s also an exclusive venue for a unique wedding day.

I was back in Glen Doll at the weekend, walking with a Scots Magazine group, and found it looking like winter but feeling like spring, that typical Highland brew that materialises whenever the frontiers of these two seasons rub up against each other.
