Montrose Port is the perfect gateway to Angus and the north-east of Scotland – an area renowned for sweeping sandy beaches, stunning mountains and glens, ancient castles and some of the country’s finest golf courses.

This really is a region that encapsulates the heart of Scotland. Indeed, Angus was the location for the Battle of Dunnichen between the Picts and Northumbrians in 645. The battle effectively led to the subsequent creation of the Kingdom of Alba, later to become known as Scotland. 

This is why Angus is so steeped in history with fantastic attractions such as Glamis Castle and Arbroath Abbey.  Tour the coast and visit quaint fishing villages. For foodies, seek out the Arbroath smokie – delicious smoked haddock prepared in time-honoured tradition.

For those who enjoy the natural world, the Angus Glens will take the breath away as will the long sandy beaches that are perfect for peace and solitude. Wildlife abounds in this part of the world, with coastal cliffs that attract breeding seabirds and forests that are home to red squirrels and other animals.

The region is also famous for its championship golf course at Carnoustie – but there are many other fantastic courses too. With all this and so much more, Montrose offers the ideal cruise destination.
