Great wee beach with toilet facilities, children's play park and coffee shops all within a short distance. Footpath runs for quite a bit of the beach if you prefer to stroll and not get sand in your shoes.

Great beach for dog walks, usually have to have a warm jersey or jacket as can be a bit cooler down there ....but our Labrador doesn’t pay any heed to that, she loves digging in the sand and swimming in the River Tay. Clean and...More

This used to be a beautifully maintained beach, obviously budget cutbacks have reduced the maintenance and the beach shows this.

Really liked Broughty Ferry. It has a nice friendly feel. Enjoyed walk around with dogs. Broughty Castle nearby. Beach was clean and tidy.

From Broughty Ferry Castle along to the Barnhill Rock Gardens, you can walk along this beautiful beach (around 20 minutes) and enjoy the sea birds, and views of Tayport, the Tay estuary, and the North Sea. It is seldom warm enough to bathe here, but...More

From Dundee the No 5 or 73 gets you to Broughty in 15 mins with a great service of buses every 10/15 mins. Short walk to Broughty Castle and beach starts there and stretches to Carnoustie 4/5 miles away. JET
