From foodie delights to unique gatherings, AC/DC to Harley Davidson, spectacular hikes to historic gardens, the region of Angus provides lots of reasons for people to visit.
As the tourist season gets set to hot up for 2019, Visit Angus has shared some of the top draws in the region for 2019.

Angus is known for its scenery, hikes and coastal paths, but did you know there are links to the rock band AC/DC, and the iconic motorbike brand Harley Davidson?
You’ll be in ‘hog’ heaven if you pay a visit during Harley-Davidson in the City, according to the latest in a series of tourism blogs from Visit Angus. The event is a gathering, of Harley Davidson owners, or hogs, which takes place every year in Brechin.

Visit the region during the summer and visitors can witness some of the region’s summer galas, as well as Scottish-themed gatherings such as the Strathmore Highland Games.
There’s Munro bagging, which has particular significance in Angus as this was the home of Hugh Monro – who was the first to measure these 3,000 ft plus peaks.

In fact, Angus ticks many different boxes, according to Visit Angus. Millie Clarke, Tourism Officer for Angus Council, said:

“While you’ll find many destinations claiming a specialist theme – as a luxury getaway, culture capital or eco-friendly escape – we like to think Angus ticks off a lot of travel boxes at the same time. Choose us as a family destination and you can be assured some escape time for the parents too, whether that’s a round of golf or stop-off at a distillery. We’ve history and attractions, hikes and cycling, antiques shopping, award-winning gardens and plenty of fine cafes and restaurants – in short, something for everyone in 2019.”
