Living in Carnoustie

The coast

Carnoustie is just off the A92, Scotland’s east coast route that heads all the way up to Aberdeen from Dundee. It connects a chain of coastal towns, including Arbroath, Montrose and Stonehaven. Along the way you’ll discover pretty seaside villages, beautiful sandy beaches, castles and nature reserves.

The city

Undoubtedly, Carnoustie is a popular place to live because of the easy access into Dundee. It takes about half an hour to drive into the city and the fastest train service takes just 17 minutes. Once there, Dundee is still an active port as well as a focal point for culture and the arts. With a leading university there too, there’s a thriving and vibrant atmosphere and it’s a wonderful place for a day out.

The countryside

The grand Cairngorms National Park rises up above the east coast. It’s the largest park in the UK and is in the heart of the Highlands. You can be in the foothills in an hour and from there you can choose from all the wonderful walking and hiking routes. It’s a dramatic landscape with high peaks for experienced climbers, secluded lochs for gentler walking and for winter sports, there’s a choice of ski slopes.
