New responsible tourism experience launches in Scotland
by Charlotte Flach
A new tourism experience, The Angus Tour, has been launched encouraging people to head off the main roads and routes to Dundee and Aberdeen and explore Angus.
The tour has a focus on sustainable and responsible tourism and offers a variety of travel options including public transport, cycling and walking, as well as driving, and will take visitors on an inspiring tour around Angus, including year-round visitor experiences in locations across the east coast region.
The Angus Tour route runs from Monifieth along the A92 to Montrose and then inland to Brechin and onto the A90 to Forfar and Glamis, allowing travellers to branch off and explore locations along the way, northwards to Edzell, west to Kirriemuir, or into the Angus Glens.
New Autumn and Winter themed itineraries have been created as part of the tour, shining a light on the vast range of attractions Angus has to offer, with experiences such as biking in the hills or a slower, more relaxed trip visiting historic places of interest such as Arbroath Abbey or House of Dun.
The itineraries are three days long, and with options to start from any part of the route, visitors can choose to do all or some depending on what best fits into their length of stay.
The Visit Angus app and Insider’s Guide, which lists '100 unmissable experiences' in the area, will help visitors curate their experience.
Norma Lyall, Development Worker, Angus Tourism Cooperative, said: “Stretching along the east coast from south Aberdeenshire to Dundee, and inland to Perth & Kinross, Angus is an area of incredible beauty packed with adventures for all ages and abilities.
“Sustainable and community led tourism are key to the authentic adventure experiences Angus has to offer. Many of our tourism businesses are working hard to reduce their impact on the environment and raise awareness of regenerative tourism.
