House Removals Forfar
Forfar is the country town of Angus, Scotland. The traditional market town was once the centre of the ancient Kingdom of the Pits and is now home to the world renowned Forfar Birdie. This is a delicious crispy meat pastry traditionally eaten by local farm workers.
For an insight into Forfar’s history, art and industry, visit the Meffan Gallery and Museum. Here you can witness linen being hand woven. Wander through time in an old cobbled vennel, and peer into a knockmaker’s workshop. The Meffan also tells the sinister history of Forfar’s place in the 17th century as a home for witch hunts. If horticulture is your passion, then you can’t leave the area without a visit to Pitmuies Gardens, with its roses, herbaceous borders and woodland walks. Also, don’t miss the monthly farmers’ market which is enjoyed by visitors and locals alike throughout the year.
