Angus has loved welcoming visitors again after lockdown. We would normally have welcomed thousands of visitors to our beautiful county over the spring and summer months and we have missed meeting old and new friends during this time.

Angus is currently in tier 3 of Scottish Government Covid-19 restrictions. Only travel to Angus if it is essential – refer to for more information.

When restrictions are lifted, here are our tips for traveling below;

  1. Check the venue opening times before you visit, as these may have changed
  2. Venues may be operating a ticketing system and bookings may have to be made in advance
  3. Be aware that not all facilities or venues will be open
  4. If the location you are visiting is busy, consider going somewhere less crowded
