Arbroath to Lunan Bay

Distance 11.5miles/18km

We will start at the car park at the east end of the esplanade at Arbroath at GR NO658412, and follow the coastal path marked as a Nature Trail. There are many interesting rock formations, caves and beautiful bays to be admired. The path is mainly well-kept tarmac coastal path. After 4miles we will reach Auchmithie NO681443, a pretty fishing village with many well-kept or restored cottages. Continuing North, the coastal path turns inland and follows some farm tracks. After 1.5 km it follows the coast for the rest of the walk. The path is grassy in this part, as it is less used, but there is a clear path nonetheless. At Ethie Haven there are panoramic views of Lunan Bay, and the little village nestles under the cliffs. We will turn off the coastal path just after Ethie Haven NO697487 and follow the track leading to North Mains and the finishing point.

If there are insufficient numbers for a bus , we are proposing to park our cars at Auchmithie, walk south to Arbroath along this picturesque route and return the same way. The walk would therefore be 8miles.

Walkers must wear walking boots, carry WARM and waterproof clothing, hat and gloves and take plenty of food and liquids. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL. Be prepared for possible wintry conditions on the top, whatever the forecast.
