Book now for walking festival

The highly successful Angus Glens Walking Festival launches its online booking service for the 2012 event this week.

Celebrating its tenth year, the four day walking festival offers a packed programme of 28 walks as well as three evenings of top food, music and entertainment.

The festival runs from Thursday, May 31 to Sunday, June 3 and there is a wide choice of walks to suit walkers of all levels of fitness and ability.

Tom McGrath, Chair of the Festival said: “I believe The Angus Glens Walking Festival has grown over the years because of the fantastic range of walks we offer. Some of our walks, such as Jocks Road and Airlie Ridge are very popular and appear in the programme every year. However, we always like to introduce new walks. This year one of our new walks titled Eagle Watch gives you a chance to see breeding Golden Eagles as they search for prey for their young, an excellent opportunity to see these majestic birds in their natural environment.”

All walks are guided by experienced mountain leaders and countryside rangers who can answer any questions you have about the surroundings. To find out more and book your place visit www.angusahead.com/walkingfestival, or call the VisitScotland Information Centre on 01382 527527.
