About Tealing


Tealing is a small Scottish village that can proudly trace its history back well over 1000 years. The site of a Roman Earth House, Pictish stones and a late Medieval Dovecot, it nestles at the foot of the Sidlaw hills (well known local spot for ramblers) six miles north of the city of Dundee and eight miles south of the market town of Forfar. The population today of 700 lives in small clusters scattered across the 15 square miles of fertile farming land. There are several large working farms mixed in with lots of comfortable family homes that form part of the Dundee and Angus commuter belt. At the heart of community life is our wee village school and Tealing Hall, which started life as the cinema and sports hall for trainee RAF pilots during the second World War. Once famous for the landing here of Russian Foreign Minister Molotov in 1942, the village is now at the centre of the renewables sector in Scotland as the site of the new Converter Power Station handling all of the energy generated by the world's deepest offshore wind farm, Seagreen Offshore.
