If you havenâ€™t explored Angus yet, the ideal weekend to do so is approaching. Don Currie finds out more.Â
Angus may sometimes get overlooked by outdoors-loving central belters who tend to head north or west â€“ but it offers plenty to those who do opt to turn in an easterly direction.
Angus Autumn Adventures is a two-day attempt to promote the region’s possibilities, and this year there are endless ways to sample its hills, glens, rivers, lochs, forests and coastline over the weekend of 7-8 September.
Activities include gorge walking, coasteering, horse riding, quad biking, bird watching, rock climbing and more, all with experienced rangers and guides.
The energetic weekend programme was successful last year, the first time it had been tried, and this time there are some additions to the programme, such as a family fun day at Monikie Country Park on the Sunday.
Councillor Mairi Evans, Angus Councilâ€™s tourism spokesperson â€“ on right of picture with fellow gorge walkers in Glen Esk during last year’s weekend â€“ said: “Angus Autumn Adventures is a chance for people to try some of the many outdoor activities that are available in our county with fully-qualified and accredited companies and individuals who are passionate about the Angus countryside.”
