Walking in Angus

See Beautiful Angus on Foot

Angus is ideal walking country, at all levels of ability. Walkers have the best opportunity of any visitor to see the wildlife and the glorious scenery in Angus - the rolling fields between towns and the countryside, the magnificent terrain of the glens and mountains, and the coastal panorama of surging seas, sweeping beaches and steep cliffs. There are a great variety of walks - from gentle paths to strenuous hill-walks, ideal for family rambles or serious day hiking, so you'll find that there is a route to suit you in Angus.

For the family rambler, many lovely walks are easily accessible. Angus Council has recently built a new section of path at Barry Buddon, between Monifieth and Carnoustie. This has made it possible for cyclists and walkers to follow a more or less continuous off road route from Broughty Ferry to Carnoustie.
