Lunan Bay

Lunan Bay is a broad east-facing beach of beautiful sand backed by dunes that is framed by low cliffs to the north and south. From its northern end near Boddin Point, about three miles south of Montrose, it stretches for over two miles south to Ethie Haven.

Half way down its length, Lunan Bay is cut into the beach by the Lunan Water as it escapes into the North Sea.

One of the biggest expanses of sand in Angus, this beautiful beach provides a wonderful place to walk, or take families for day trips. Popular with surfers, there are strong currents to watch out for. There is a gift shop open in the summer and a viewing platform at the top of the dunes.

Getting there

Lunan Bay can be found to the north of Inverkeilor on the A92 between Arbroath and Montrose. Once in the village of Lunan turn left then right, following a sign for the beach down a private farm road. The beach is just off the main A92 Angus Coastal Tourist Route which runs through Arbroath. There is a train station in the town, and the road train runs from the High Street to the beach regularly. Access to the beach by steps and ramps
