Montrose Basin


Extending to 750 ha (1,850 acres) of designated nature reserve, its waters and mud flats provide a rich feeding ground for thousands of resident and migrant birds.

Curlews, oystercatchers and eider ducks are found in large numbers during the summer months and in the autumn pink-footed and greylag geese arrive. The Scottish Wildlife Trust manages the nature reserve and maintains a Wildlife Centre at Rossie Braes overlooking the Montrose Basin to the south.
