Arbroath to Montrose
13 November, 2010

The walk started at the seafront in Arbroath past outcrops of Devonian Old Red Sandstone. The first photograph is of the Gaylet Pot which seems to have changed its name to the Gloup. It is a blowhole formed by the collapse of a sea cave. In the correct conditions it is still active.


Gaylet Pot


We passed through the picturesque village of Auchmithie, where the toilets were open but the hotel closed (permanently). Along some farm tracks before arriving at Lunan Bay, a fine stretch of sand.


Redcastle is a ruin situated at the mouth of the Lunan Water.


Lunan Water has some fine meanders at its mouth.


Scurdyness Lighthouse at the mouth of the River South Esk.


Lydia enjoying the view over Glaxo's horrible pharmaceutical plant. A major employer in Montrose but certainly spoils the view.

For me, it was a pleasure to attend this CC meet, and visit my former home area.
