It's no coincidence that Angus is the home to the boy who never grew up - Peter Pan's author J M Barrie grew up here in Kirriemuir. In the latest in a series of new travel blogs, Visit Angus shares why Angus is a region that's ageless and full of adventure and excitement - in other words, a place that keeps families coming back for more.
The blog, published on the Visit Angus website, details family-friendly places to visit, from farms and country parks to glamping and more. Every blog also features an Insider's Tip, where a local shares their favourite spots and why.
September is a busy month in Angus, with the annual Doors Open Days on 8 and 9 September and the Angus Coastal Festival set to draw crowds of visitors. Doors Open Days is a national event run by Scottish Civic Trust. During the month of September, thousands of buildings all over Scotland - many of them not normally publicly accessible - are open and free to enter. The Angus Coastal Festival from September 7 to 17 features activities such as coastal cycle rides, dolphin spotting walks and beach activities.
Millie Clarke, Tourism Officer for Angus Council, said:
"We definitely think there's something in the water here in Angus. Not only did this area inspire J M Barrie and sow the seeds for Peter Pan, but its beauty, history and landscape attract families all year round. We're delighted to be able to share some of our gems, and what makes the county such a family-friendly destination, in this blog."
