Enjoying the outdoors in Angus

Angus offers some fantastic opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, from the coast to the glens, and around our towns.

Everyone has a right to be on most land and inland water for recreation, education or to get from one place to another.

You can do so on foot, in a wheelchair, by bicycle, on horseback or in a boat or canoe. You must do so responsibly, and your rights and responsibilities are explained in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

We have created paths and path networks and published a core paths plan to improve outdoor access in Angus.

We will investigate obstructions to access rights and public rights of way. And we have set up a Local Access Forum to advise on access disputes and other access matters.

We can make temporary exemptions from access rights in some circumstances.

Our Countryside Access Strategy shows our priorities for outdoor access in Angus.
