East Haven Is about 2.7 Miles from the campsite and is one of the oldest recorded fishing communities in Scotland. The sand and stone beach is popular with locals and visitors with its interesting history and rock pools to explore when the tide is out.
Broughty Castle Museum is about 8 miles down the coast, in the direction of Dundee. It is a 15th century coastal fort, which houses a fascinating museum.
8 miles from the campsite is Arbroath Abbey. Situated in the town of Arbroath and dating back to 1178, has played a major roll in Scottish history and is a must visit.
Arbroath and Motrose are two historic towns that are worth a visit in their own right but for us, it was Lunan Bay we wanted to visit. In fact, the Vikings also wanted to visit, way back in the 10th century and today remains a secluded haven on the dramatic coastline. With its beautiful sand dunes and low cliffs, it extends for two miles and on that particular day that we were there, we had the whole beach to ourselves. It’s not just amazing natural scenery though, there is also the crumbling ruin of Red Castle which overlooks the Bay and dates from the 12th century. The beach can be accessed via the car park and short walk.
St Cyrus. Is 10 miles further up the coastline from Lunan Bay and is another stunning beach but with a different character. The beach runs for 3 miles, from the village of St Cyrus to the mouth of the North Esk River and is part of St Cyrus national nature reserve. With its striking cliffs and sand dunes as well as the nature reserve, there is a lot of wild life and natural wonders to see. There is car parking, toilets and a visitor centre.
If you are in a road trip mood, then we would recommend a visit to Dunnottar castle. It is about 45 miles away fro the campsite, so we are stretching it a bit to say it is nearby but it is well worth a visit, if you are able. Our own roadtrip did include this castle, amongst other stops, including – Aberlemno Sculptured Stones and Restenneth Priory. You can read more in the section below – ‘Read about our Trip’
