Auchmithie is a small village on the coast of Angus around three miles north east of Arbroath. The village itself stands above 120ft cliffs, while below them is an attractive pebble beach, an old harbour, and some fascinating rock architecture.
To the north, the beach is surrounded by sheer red sandstone cliffs. These are pierced by a number of rock arches and caves, the latter once making this a popular area for smugglers.
The south end of the bay is home to Auchmithie’s old harbour, above which a few small boats are pulled up on the shore.
The scenic beach is well worth a visit and can be reached via the Arbroath Coastal Path.
