Mini guide to Montrose

     

Montrose is located on Scotland's eastern coastline and is the most northerly coastal town in the ancient county of Angus. The town has a stunning setting on the internationally renowned Montrose Basin, an important wildlife sanctuary, as well as boasting the widest high street in Scotland. Historic architecture dominates the town centre, acting as a reminder of the town's role as a major port.

Montrose's chief attraction is the Montrose Basin and Wildlife Centre. The Basin is home to a stunning array of birdlife, with the winter months dominated by pink-footed geese. The Wildlife Centre offers interactive displays and informative exhibits. On the outskirts of town is the grand House of Dun, built in 1730 by the Scottish architect William Adam.

The town itself features picturesque streets lined with Victorian townhouses and other well preserved buildings, as well as numerous parks and gardens. Within easy walking distance of the town centre is the Neo-Classical Montrose Museum, which dates back to 1842 and houses interesting displays depicting traditional life, trade, industry and religion. The museum is also home to an art gallery with regular exhibitions by local artists.

Montrose comes equipped with a modern sports centre and swimming pool, as well as the fifth oldest golf course in the world, Montrose Medal, where golf has been played since 1562. St Cyrus and Lunan Bay offer pristine sandy beaches and rugged scenery.

The town offers a number of convenience stores, newsagents and pharmacies, as well as a shopping centre and supermarket.
