Awards for local beaches

Arbroath, Carnoustie, Monifieth and Broughty Ferry beaches have won awards in the latest list released by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

All four have won Seaside Awards, Broughty Ferry for 10 years in a row, Arbroath for the fourth consecutive year, Carnoustie for the seventh year in a row and Monifieth, since 2011.

Beaches receiving Seaside Awards have something to offer everyone, from lifeguarded swimming areas and bustling promenades with entertainment provided to secluded bays which are havens for wildlife.

Celebrating some of the cleanest and best managed beaches in the country, the Seaside Award has been used as a quality mark for Scotland’s beaches for the past 21 years.

In total 59 beaches have been recognised for their excellent litter management, safety procedures and water quality.
