Carlingheugh Bay

A large bay on the North Sea coast of Angus, Carlingheugh Bay is located to the northeast 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.
