A glorious day greeted me for this spring season re-visit to Montrose in Angus.  Half a tide covered the beach, just below the golf links.  Fresh rocks had been added to the sea defences, a reminder that this can be a wild place, too.  Today was benign, with locals and visitors alike enjoying the charms of being on the beach and by the sea.  Angus is well worth a visit at any time of the year, with facilities nearby and superb coastal walks to enjoy in both directions.

The second of the Angus beaches in the Scottish Lowlands region, this famous beach has miles of golden sand, running north from Montrose to the mouth of the North Esk River.  The southern end of the beach is now protected by a barrier of large rocks.  There’s a short promenade for easy walking and just behind the beach is the Seafront Splash Play Park, a café and picnic area.  On this occasion, the tide was in against the rocks and the sea was alive, piling onto the beach and sea defences.
