Beach is still a peach
BROUGHTY Ferry beach has retained its status as one of Scotland’s top waterfront destinations.
The beach has once again been given a Scottish Beach Award by Keep Scotland Beautiful which recognised the “high standards provided to users”.
The beach was praised for providing excellent information and accessible amenities, as well as keeping the sand litter-free.
Keep Scotland Beautiful described Broughty Ferry as “a sandy beach flanked by dunes”.
It added: “The beach boasts lovely views across the Tay Estuary to the north coast of Fife. It is home to a nature conservation site where a remarkable array of wildlife can be found, including birds, seals and even the occasional porpoise.”
Anti-litter campaigners last week hit out at beachgoers who dumped cans, bags and takeaway food containers near the beach’s Castle Rocks during the warm weather, and called for more bins to placed in the area.
