CARNOUSTIE is a thriving village, post town and station on the
Dundee and Arbroath Joint Railway, in the parish of Barry. It
is a pleasant sea bathing place, situated on the east coast of the
Gorman Ocean, about 10 miles e. from Dundee, and 7 s. by w. from
Arbroath, and is much resorted to in the summer mouths by visitors
from Dundee and other parts of Scotland, and since the introduc-
tion of a supply of pure water, and a thorough system of drainage,
it is considered one of the best seaside resorts on the east coast.
On the extensive links or downs in the neighbourhood of the village
is a battery, where the naval l-eserve exercise with heavy guns.
