Carnoustie is a small town on the Angus coast between Dundee and Arbroath, famed for its championship golf course.
The famous Carnoustie links has proved a magnetic challenge for golfers of all standards. It was the scene of local lad Paul Lawrie's heroics in the 1999 Open Championship, when he lifted the famous claret jug.
While golfers test their skills on the varying courses in and around Carnoustie, swimming, sailing, windsurfing and fishing can be enjoyed at the bay. Carnoustie Gala Week is the highlight of the summer (apart from when the the Open comes to town)!
