Lunan Bay is a fantastic beach to visit. It is about 5 miles north of Arbroath along the coastline.This is a beach and dunes of golden sands which extend along for about a mile with the River Lunan coming out to the sea around half way. Beside what were old salmon net poles. This can be easily crossed on the beach using bare feet. There are a lot of lovely walks which can easily be followed as well as the beach itself.
There is also the remains of the old Red Castle on top of one of the cliffs although this has been allowed to become a ruin.It was built for King William the Lion in the late 12th Century to fight off the Vikings.
This beach has a Blue Flag status which is good for kids wading and splashing about., but it is also situated on a shelf. This means that you should be wary of going out too far. Inflatables are also not recommended as the tide can take both young swimmers and inflatables out to sea. Although I have often seen surfers out there.
It is popular with campers as it offers a campsite as well as a newly built bunkhouse. There is also a diner, all within 50 yards of the beach. Although many opt to take a picnic or barbecue, as you can spend a few hours along this beach.
There is ample parking at the back of the dunes although gates are shut between 8pm and 8am.
There is sign posts along the A92 tolunan Bay but the roads off there towards Lunan Bay are more single track with passing places.
Unfortunately my photos can only show half the beach at a time at it stretches for over a mile. The walks can also take you through the dunes or the woods, a great place for dog walkers!
