Attraction Information

The golden sands of Montrose Beach stretch for 3 miles from Montrose to the North Esk River, with stunning views south to Scurdieness lighthouse. Montrose is a family beach with a handy promenade and car parking, plus shop and amusement centre. More importantly though it also has a Seafront Splash play area for children, pools, pitch and putt and an ice cream parlour. The quirky Trail Pavilion, built in 1913, houses the public toilets, open at peak times.

There's a campsite near the harbour if you take a shine to the area, be sure if you do stay to take a family ramble in the lovely nature reserve in the tidal basin to the west. The phone number provided is for the local tourist information service.
