History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Today, Carnoustie is a mix of golfing mecca and holiday resort, with seaside family activities centred around a wide, sandy beach. The area also has a tradition of industry, with the primary focus on jute, and fruit preserves (we're not far from Dundee after all!).
There are a pair of historic remains close by; Carlungie Earth House is only three miles away, and Ardestoe Earth House just a bit further.
At Broughty Ferry, a historic castle overlooks the Tay, and at nearby Barry is a restored 19th-century meal mill.
