This is a coastal port to the east of Brechin and is next to Montrose Basin which is a large inland salt water basin and important nature reserve. The area of Montrose has a number of sites of pre-historic interest including the Stone of Morphie standing stone to the north from the town. The town itself is on the site of an earlier Norse settlement. Within the town is the Museum of Montrose in Panmure Place. It contains the Pictish carved Inchbrayock Stone dating from 850-950AD as well as other Pictish stones and items from the Neolithic and Bronze ages.
