When it comes to nature, Angus has a natural advantage - with unspoilt beaches and rolling hills and glens. In the latest in a new series of travel blogs, Visit Angus shares why, when it comes to the outdoors, this region can't be topped.
From birdwatching to bagging a Munro, working farms to a staggering range of camping and caravanning options, it's a nature lover's paradise, says the blog, published on the website.
The county also boasts some history-making people, from Hugh Munro - who coined the name for a mountain over 3,000 feet high - to John ‘Jock' Winter, whose fight for the right to walk on an Angus estate led to the Scottish Rights of Way Act.
October is another busy month, particularly for lovers of the outdoors. Carnoustie is host to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, running from October 4-7. From October 5-13, The Great Angus Ghost Tourtakes place at Monikie Country Park, courtesy of Arbroath-based Bespooked Ghost Tours. For more what's on information go to visitangus.com
