Montrose is a Scottish coastal resort town in the beautiful Angus region, lying between the North and South Esk rivers. It is the northernmost coastal town in Angus and functions as a port, developed at a natural harbour that traded as far back as medieval times.
Montrose today is an important commercial port for the thriving oil and gas industry. The town enjoys a view of Montrose Basin, a two square mile tidal lagoon, which is a nature reserve of international importance. It is the largest inland saltwater basin in the UK, and an important habitat for the mute swan.
Montrose also boasts a Public Library opened in 1905 by Scots born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
