C34 Edzell - Kirkton of Menmuir
This article is about the Class III road numbered C34 maintained by Angus Council.

The C34 twists and turns its way westwards from Edzell through the foothills of the Eastern Grampians, before heading southwards back into Strathmore via a hill climb.

The road starts on the B966 in Edzell on the north edge of the village and heads west along Lethnot Road. Edzell Castle is soon passed on the right and the roadside graveyard with the remains of the old Edzell Church is on the left. The West Water comes close by at Pirn Brig and from here the road begins its mazy route, always remaining north of the equally meandering river, as it hugs the foot of the higher hills to the north.

It eventually crosses the river by the Bridge of Lethnot at Bridgend, the West Water and dead-end road heading north-westwards into the mountains up Glen Lethnot. We, however now begin to head southwards up the steep slope between the Hill of Menmuir and White Caterthun (an ancient hill-fort), to over 200 metres, before heading down just as steeply to reach the C30 at the Kirkton of Menmuir.

The C34 heading westwards along the valley of the West Water near Witton.
