Angus Maritime Heritage

Maritime HeritageThe Angus coastline is about 35 miles long, from north of Montrose to the outskirts of Dundee.  When roads were poor, goods and people were carried along the coast by ship, and over a dozen distinct communities in Angus made their living from the vibrant and bustling coast. But the sea could be dangerous and unpredictable and many lives were lost through shipwrecks and storms.
