Angus Glens Walking Festival

Description Of Walking Festival

This popular event takes place in the beautiful location of Angus with its stunning scenery and excellent walking conditions.

Anyone can take part. The festival covers 18 walks, designed to appeal to all levels of ability, with a choice of striking scenic locations.

The four day festival is a great event for meeting people from all over the country and visitors from other parts of the world.

The walks are led by local mountain leaders and countryside rangers who have excellent knowledge of the beautiful Glens, including its wildlife and history.

One of the most popular walks is Jock's Road, Scotland's oldest right of way. Or, do you want to try a Munro? We've got a few! The 2016 festival includes Glas Maol, Broad Cairn and Mount Keen.
