C56 Forfar - Caldhame
This article is about the Class III road numbered C56 maintained by Angus Council.

Although beginning on Lour Road in Forfar, the C56 is known by that name for the whole of its two miles, even though it requires a further journey by the C55 and C57 to reach the estate of Lour. This is the only class III road that heads out of the town.

From the A932 St James Road, south of the town centre, the road begins in a south-easterly direction past a series of former weavers houses on the right and large former manses on the left, now mostly converted into flats.

The road then begins to climb steeply up the wooded eastern slope of Balmashanner Hill with some of the town's largest houses scattered throughout the woodlands. After leaving the town boundary and passing the track on the right, which leads to the top of the hill and the War Memorial, the road leaves the tree-lined setting and enters open farmland, passing a crossroads, which left, heads for the village of Kingsmuir and the B9128, and right, heads further up the hill to Balmashanner Farm and eventually the C55 a little to the west of our road's destination.

After here the gradient eases and the route is relatively level until reaching Caldhame where the road drops down the hill abruptly for a few hundred yards until easing for the final half mile where it ends on the C55 near Ladenford Farm.
