Other accommodation near Montrose

The town of Montrose is easily among the most exciting and breathtaking in all of Angus. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Montrose has managed to capture both a sense of natural grandeur and thrilling man-made diversion in one singular location. Scotland is known for having some of the most beautiful locales in the entire world and there are many towns in the country that are filled to the brim with lovely sights but many of these towns have sparse populations of around a thousand people or so. While there are no doubt many villages with stunning loch views, it comes at the cost of night life, luxurious amenities, and the other things that make day to day life comfortable and enjoyable. Montrose, on the other hand, has countless postcard-worthy visages but still has fine shops, theatres, and other cultural necessities. Montrose also has plenty of work opportunities including the incredibly successful GlaxoSmithCline building. As one of the largest employers in Scotland, the presence of the company is no doubt a reassuring one to the twelve thousand residents who call Montrose home.



At any rate, it can also be argued that Montrose is home to some of the most fascinating and exciting events in Scotland's history. This too is a bold claim because few countries have a past as breathtaking as this bonny country. Thus, many tourists flock to Montrose not for the beauty or the night life but for the historical relics; to be sure, there are plenty of relics and stories to be found in town. In 1296 Montrose was stormed by King Edward and over thirty thousand of his best soldiers. It was there that he ran into the King of Scotland, John de Balliol. It is said that Edward publicly humiliated de Balliol by stripping him of his royal insignia in front of the entire town. Some other accounts state that de Balliol was in fact stripped naked in front of all his subjects and then forced to dance in front of the soldiers as they took turns paddling his rear end. Though there are varying accounts of how this event actually played out, the truth is that we may never know exactly what happened because of the tall tales and legends that arose in light of the stripping. There are even people who argue that it was not Montrose but the town of Brechin where the stripping took place and that de Balliol was not stripped naked but in fact forced to don a dress. The adherents to this story still acknowledge that it was likely that de Balliol was actually forced to dance in some capacity, though. Luckily, Montrose was also the sight of the glorious revenge of de Balliol when William Wallace, the famed Scottish hero and legend in his own right, reclaimed the town from England and slaughtered every soldier on site. These are only a few of the exciting tales about the history of Montrose, though, and as such it is easy to see why Montrose is loved by so many people for so many different reasons.
