Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the Coastal Path being developed?
A new section of coastal path between Easthaven and Elliot has recently been constructed, completing a virtually continuous multi use off road route between Arbroath and the border with Dundee.
A new path along the clifftops between Seaton Den and Auchmithie was completed in 2007, allowing walkers to follow a continuous path from Arbroath to Auchmithie.
A new multi use path between Montrose and Northwater Viaduct, on the Aberdeenshire border, was opened in summer 2011.

The Council will be investigating the possibility of developing other sections of the coastal path in the future.
Angus Coastal Path - Seaton Cliffs Path - please note that the path between Seaton Cliffs and Seaton Den is currently closed until further notice due to landslides and unstable ground. Alternative access from Seaton Cliffs to Seaton Den and the coastal path to Auchmithie is available via the beach in Carlingheugh Bay.
