Angus and Dundee

40 Coast and Country Walks

James Carron

GBP 6.99

Angus is the historical heartland of Scotland, a county where the past has left an indelible mark on the present. Prehistoric forts, ancient castles and Pictish standing stones dot a rich and varied landscape where bracing coastal hikes, tranquil riverside rambles, sheltered woodland wanders and more challenging hill ascents await the walker.

This book features 40 walks, combining exploration of the county’s stunning coastline where rocky cliffs and coves reveal swathes of golden sand, with gentle inland trails and more adventurous forays into the celebrated Angus Glens where the terrain is altogether wilder and more dramatic.

Description

Angus and Dundee

For walkers, Angus and Dundee has it all – bracing coastal strolls, sheltered woodland walks, easy riverside rambles, airy moorland treks and stiff mountain ascents. The landscape and terrain is so varied, every day out can be different. This guide contains 40 routes, the majority offering easy to moderate walks, with a few more challenging hikes to the summits of higher peaks. Together, they present a flavour of the immensely varied countryside, scenery and topography found here. The county has a proud maritime heritage and there are 43km of coastline to explore. While an Angus coastal path remains in development, there are plenty of well-trodden seaside paths and clifftop trails linking spectacular beaches, striking geological features and secluded coves.
