Carlingheugh Bay (The Flairs)

Carlingheugh Bay, Arbroath


Carlingheugh Bay, (commonly known in Arbroath as The Flairs), is located to the north east of Arbroath at the the northern end of the Seaton Cliffs Nature Trail.

Overlooked by red sandstone cliffs, the bay’s raised beach was once the site of a small settlement. At the head of the bay are remnants of an old boathouse and in former times the fisherwomen of nearby Auchmithie came here to collect seaweed. ¬†At the southern end of the bay is a rock feature known as the Three Sisters.
