Temporary Closure

– Farm and Tearoom temporary closure. Nature Reserve open –

Due to a burst water main we will be partially closed until approx 11.30am today Friday 2nd August.

Our tearoom can serve ice lollies, cold drinks and cakes as takeaway only, unfortunately we can not open the farm due to no hand washing facilities.
The nature reserve is looking beautiful and remains open and is free to walk round. We will re-open as soon as the repair has been made.

Community Led Tourism – Romania Learning Trip

Do you have an interest in tourism? Would you like to take part in a learning visit to Romania in March 2019?
The learning visits will be offered to individuals in the local community in Angus who are involved directly or indirectly in tourism. Participants can include individuals from businesses, community leaders or volunteers.

Murton Trust is a partner, with Angus Tourism Cooperative, Flourish9 and Angus Council and is currently taking part in a Transnational Cooperation Project with Belgium and Romania.  This project aims to build the capacity of three areas in each country; Angus (SC), Meetjesland (BE) and Bazinul Dornelor (RO) to develop a flourishing visitor economy that benefits the whole community. Across the whole project we will be researching and driving community-led tourism using three main themes of welcoming visitors, promoting local food & drink and traditional rural skills.
