NEW : See my campaign to establish a National Coastal Path here
The coast from Broughty Ferry goes around a spit of land called Buddon Ness which unfortunately is used by the army as a target practising area. When I reached the far end of Monifieth the red warning flags were flying which meant that the route I would have to take would be the main A930 which is a bit inland from the coast. The main road was followed until I came to a small village called Barry which is just outside Carnoustie. From here a track goes along next to the railway and the famous Carnoustie golf course, where the walk ends just behind the hotel
I had to walk along the amin road as detailed above for quite a long way because the beach was closed due to rifle firing on the army range. Right next to the range was the Carnoustie golf course which was the home for the “Open” golf tournament on numerous occasions. I wondered what the golfers, who no doubt had paid considerable green fees to play the course thought of the constant machine gun fire that must have put them off their game.
