One of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland, Lunan Bay has attracted many visitors throughout the ages, from Viking armies in the 10th century to generations of holidaymakers. Today it offers a secluded haven on the dramatic Angus coastline.

From its northern end, Boddin Point, located about three miles south of Montrose, it extend two miles south to Ethie Haven. The crumbling ruin of Red Castle stands on elevated ground overlooking Lunan Bay and dates from the 12th century.
The beach is a popular destination for surfers and horse riders, the beach is also a fantastic place to go bird watching. After a storm, the sands sometimes yield agates and gem stones which glimmer in the sunlight. The best access to the beach is found via the car park at its rear.
