Murton Farm, Tea Room and Nature Reserve is a popular visitor attraction in beautiful Angus located just outside Forfar

We are delighted to announce that as of Friday 26th June, our Nature Reserve will re-open 7 days a week for the public to enjoy once again. Our car park gates will be open 9.30am- 2.30pm daily. This opening of part of our site is a wonderful, positive step forward and we will continue to work towards opening the rest of our site in due course. Until we have a fully opened site there will be no toilets or hand washing facilities available.

Please note that the tearoom, farm remain closed and this also means our tots group, volunteering, placements and all group visits will also remain on hold. Our website will be kept up to date with any changes – please do keep checking in.

We know that Murton is used by many in our community as more than just a tearoom or leisure site and that our services are missed by many at a time they are needed more than ever. We are working hard to bring our services back in a safe way, as soon as we possibly can. We thank you for your patience while we assess our sites individual needs. We must consider what is best for Murton and move forward at the pace which works for us as a site. As we stated at the beginning of this closure, each area of our work will be reviewed separately and may open at different times. This seems to be happening to many sites and we thank you for your patience while we review each day what will be our next steps. We aim to communicate clearly and openly throughout the coming weeks.

We will of course welcome your emails and social media messages during this time, however our phone line will not be monitored until further notice.

As a charity, this has been a very difficult time, but made easier knowing that we have always been so wonderfully supported by of our community. We do hope you are all well and that we are able to all come together again at Murton very soon.

From all the team at Murton, Alison, Rob, Al, Peter, Irene, Louise, Shaun, Linda, Jill, Sheila, Eilidh, Danny, Kyle, Molly, Eve, Grace, Anna, Maisie and all our volunteers.
