Now in its tenth year, the popular Angus Glens Walking Festival has this week launched its online booking service for the 2012 event.
The four day festival offers a full programme of 28 walks plus three evenings of food, music and entertainment.
The festival runs from Thursday 31 May to Sunday 3 June, with a choice of guided walks to suit people of all abilities. In past years walks and events have booked up fast.
'I believe The Angus Glens Walking Festival has grown over the years because of the fantastic range of walks we offer' said Tom McGrath, Chair of the Festival.
'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.'
'We always try to have a very balanced programme, with extremely strenuous hikes for fit, adventurous walkers, and moderate walks for those who like to take it easy. We also have an all abilities walk on each day of the festival, all of which are wheelchair accessible. What all our walks have in common is that they take place in beautiful countryside, and are guided by experienced mountain leaders and countryside rangers who can answer any questions you have about your surroundings.'
The programme of evening events finishes with a Saturday night ceilidh supper.
