Angus Autumn Adventures features a thrilling selection of adventurous things to do in Angus over the weekend of September 7 and 8.

During this two-day programme of outdoor activities, two companies – Highway2Adventure and Vertical Descents – will be providing opportunities to try coasteering, a relatively new high adrenalin sport that is growing in popularity.

Rather than following the path along the top of the Arbroath cliffs, Angus Autumn Adventures’ coasteering events feature a combination of wild swimming, rock scrambling, climbing, and jumping across this rocky, wave-lashed section of the Angus coastline, with its hidden sandy bays, stunning rock formations and secret caves.

And, as the instructors who lead these rocky treks are all qualified and highly-experienced, although there’s no shortage of excitement, as with all Angus Autumn Adventures activities, safety is paramount.

If you prefer your water fast-flowing and in a river, how about gorge walking with Highway2Adventure? Glen Esk’s steep gorges, deep pools, natural flumes and tumbling waterfalls are ideal for gorge walking – which is basically canoeing down a river without a canoe!

On the morning of September 7, Kirriemuir Quarry will be the location for a beginners’ rock climbing session. Suitable for adults and children over the age of 10, participants at this two-hour session will learn the basics of clambering up and down a rock face with the Highway2Adventure instructors.

The activities must be booked directly with the activity providers. To find out more, visit www.angusahead.com/autumnadventures or e-mail adventures@angusahead.com.
