Great new adventure weekend festival for Angus

We think Angus is a great place for an adventure, especially a family adventure.  And it seems that others agree! Not only are visitor numbers on the up to this wonderful part of Scotland, but now there is news of a new Angus Adventures event.

Taking place over two days on September 1 and 2, the Adventure Weekend will give more people a chance to try a range of outdoor activities. From the magnificent scenery of the glens, to the imposing cliffs and shoreline, there is no better place than Angus to try your hand at something new in the great outdoors.

On offer is the chance to learn new skills in wildlife photography, coasteering, mountain biking to new places, canoeing, rock climbing gorge walking and multi-activity days. This weekend is aimed at children and adults so it’s ideal for a family break.

All the activities will be led by fully qualified and accredited companies and individuals, including us at Highway2Adventure!

Hilary Tasker, marketing officer within the Economic Development Unit at Angus Council, which is behind the Angus Autumn Adventure event, says: “The aim of the festival is to offer participants taster sessions of activities they may not have tried before, at a discounted rate.

“Most of the activities we have on offer have been organised by members of Outdoor Angus, which is a group of businesses who work together to promote the Angus countryside and the great activities that can be enjoyed here. 

“There really is something for everyone, from high adrenalin experiences such as canyoning, to gentle walks in the countryside where you can learn the skills involved in wildlife photography. 

“Angus is a beautiful part of the country, with lots to do.  We would recommend that people come to experience it for themselves.”
