Monifieth is a small coastal town on the north shore of the Firth of Tay, just a few miles east of Broughty Ferry.
Monifieth has a fascinating history; with many relics and archaeological sites found throughout the area. Uncover the Pictish stones in St. Rule’s graveyard, then just 2 miles north of the village you can find an Iron Age fort.
Monifieth’s whale and sea industry thrived in the 18th and mid 19th centuries, and the town grew and prospered with the jute boom of Victorian times.
Today Monifieth is noted as a golfing centre, with its links course being used as a qualifier for the British Open Championship.
Monifieth’s glorious sandy beach also makes it a popular spot, and the Blue Segway outdoor recreation area is great for children. Close by are Monikie and Crombie Country Parks, which offer a variety of fun outdoor activities including wildlife spotting and watersports.
Foodies can enjoy gloriously fresh fish & chips, an international offering that includes Thai, Italian, Chinese and Indian as well as the more traditional fayre served in local bars and coffee shops.
