The beauty of Angus is best discovered on foot. A number of excellent foot paths run through Angus, providing access for recreational activities such as walking, cycling and horse riding.
See our directory for a selection of walks and cycle routes in Angus.
Angus Council has recently launched a strategy, Angus Countryside Access Strategy, to provide improved access to some of Angus's most spectacular countryside. The strategy aims to provide better access to Angus Coastal Path, the Burgh Path Networks and the Eastern Cairngorms Access Project.
The Angus coastline, with its vibrant towns, will be enjoyed uninterrupted, thanks to a continuous interpreted path. Existing paths will benefit from an upgrade and missing links will be constructed where necessary.
Improved paths networks around the Angus Burghs and in the Angus Glens are currently under development. The Eastern Cairngorms Access Project provides improved links between the Angus Glens and Upper Deeside, through the restoration of existing mountain paths.
Investment in foot paths and access increases the potential for tourism to Angus and increase the opportunity for improvement in community health through exercise.
