Powmyre Quarry

One of the biggest ongoing developments of the estate is Powmyre Quarry. The quarry is situated just off the Kirriemuir to Glamis road and is managed by Aggregate Industries. The site itself covers 97.77 hectares and is a major supplier of sand and gravel.

Work at the quarry started in 2007 and will continue for 10 years, based on a plan to excavate different areas each year. As the first areas are quarried and exhausted, they will be restored to form a valuable wildlife habitat with a loch forming part of the restoration scheme. This will be home to a large range of aquatic plants and animals and will also provide a small trout fishery for the Estate.
