Montrose : Michelin's recommendations
Montrose is a popular seaside resort sited on a peninsula between the sea and a seawater basin. It offers a wide, fine sandy beach, several golf courses and a surrounding landscape worth exploring. It has always been a busy commercial centre, a market town for the rich farming hinterland and prosperous port. Its wealth increased with North Sea oil, and the opening of an oil base at Ferryden.
