This is a great place to go if you like walks her the sea. Last year a whale spent about a month going up and down the coast at this point and it was fantastic. It may come back this year. Even without the whale,...More

This place is amazing. The weather was beautiful when we visited which helped tremendously. The beach was excellent with children enjoying the sea in safety. Apparently Peregrine Falcons breed in the cliffs here and the wild flowers were in abundance. Take a picnic, it's an...More

Stayed nearby and visited here with our dogs virtually every day. Great walks whichever direction you turn after walking over the bridge. Beautiful area, scenic cliffs behind you, soft sandy beach and the nature reserve to explore. Great place.

A lovely clean sandy beach! It was particularly quiet this week when we visited and the children had an absolutely wonderful time splashing in the water and building in the sand!

As all the reviews say, lovely walk and interesting all the way round. I was impressed they have taken the yellow dog project on board as my dog has had trauma in her life and is nervous. All but one dog ( 1 in 10)...More

This is a lovely sandy beach to walk along and often, depending on the time of the year, with very few others about. There is plenty wild life and the information boards on the plants are superb. The information centre is fascinating and helps to...More

Absolutely stunning beach. We weren't sure whether to go here or Lunan Bay and after going to Lunan Bay afterwards would definitely recommend here. Parking is much easier, and the beach seems a bit less crowded even with the same number of people.

We saw plenty-if you google caravan parks near Montrose, you'll probably get them listed-don't recall one at St Cyrus itself, but could be wrong
