More Information...

This small sand and rock beach is found a short walk from Carnoustie Railway Station, about 10 miles north of Dundee. The beach slopes gently into the sea, and at high tide the water can come all the way up to the sea wall. At low tide the distance to the water's edge can be as much as 300 metres, so it is best to check the tide times before visiting. There are a number of golf courses in the area, including the famous Carnoustie Golf Course, which has hosted the Open Championships. There is a choice of car parks close by, and a leisure centre and children's play area with a paddling pool is just behind the beach. There are three access points to the beach, the main one being from the boat club, from which steps and a slipway lead onto the beach. From here it is a 2-mile stroll along the sands to Buddon Ness. See the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency website for latest water quality test results for this beach. Shops, places to eat and other limited facilities can be found in the small town of Carnoustie.
