Coronavirus COVID-19

Update 19 April 2022

You can view the latest services on offer from ANGUSalive by viewing the service pages across our website and a summary via the drop downs below.

Although the legal requirement to wear face coverings in indoor public places and public transport became guidance on Monday 18 April 2022, the Scottish Government has advised the public to carry on taking sensible precautions to further reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Throughout the pandemic ANGUSalive’s priority has been to protect its employees and the public. 

Therefore, in accordance with the the Scottish Government Guidance, ANGUSalive is strongly recommending employees, customers and visitors to continue to wear face coverings in our venues.

You can view what we are doing to keep you safe via our Staying Safe webpage.

Our country parks at Monikie, Crombie and Forfar Loch have suffered damage due to the winter storms.

Care should be taken when visiting the parks as remedial works are ongoing. Please avoid the wooded areas which are currently hazardous due to the storm damage.

Crombie Country Park is currently impassable and visitors are advised to walk elsewhere.

Glen Doll car park is open, however there is still a large number of fallen trees across all Forestry and Land Scotland waymarked trails and most mountain access routes.

The following waymarked trails remain closed:

South Esk Trail

Corrie fee Trail

Dounalt Trail

Whitewater Trail

Access to the open hill is possible in some areas.

It is now possible to walk up the Moulzie track to Bachnagairn to access the climbing on JuanJorge (subject to nesting Raptors) or the open hill up to Broad Cairn, Cairn Bannoch and beyond.

This is the ONLY trail that is accessible, therefore you'll have to come back the same way. You won't be able to come back via Loch Esk down Jock's Road, or Corrie Fee, the forest is impassable in these areas.

It is also possible to access the climbing in Winter Corrie.

The Kilbo path is now considered to be an accessible route up to Mayer and Driesh but there is one section of fallen trees in the upper forest in Corrie Kilbo (just after the stepping stones) that should be avoided. There is an easy detour around the outside of the forest (300metres) which will bring you back onto the path again. This not only avoids the fallen trees but also the muddy ground in there.
