The five main glens of Angus - Isla, Prosen, Clova, Lethnot and Esk - stretch from the fertile plains of Strathmore up to the southern ranges of the Cairngorms National Park. Although the area is rugged, remote and crowd-free it is still easily accessible for walkers and this guide offers a wide range of circular and linear routes with which to explore.
The routes described climb Munros including Mount Keen and include lesser-known ascents such as Badandun Hill. From the forested Glen Doll to the rugged bowl of Loch Wharral and the remote reaches of Glen Lethnot, the Angus Glens have something for everyone, and all within easy reach of Dundee and the nearby Angus towns of Brechin and Forfar. This guide is an ideal companion to any visitor to the Angus Glens. Along with step-by-step route descriptions, the author provides transport and access information, advice on hillcraft and an insight into the area's wildlife, geology and history. 26 circular day walks & 4 linear walks along the historic Mounth Road
