Enjoy a quiet coastal lifestyle with the city nearby, from a new home at Greenlaw Park
Sandy beach, small local businesses, world-class golf course and city attractions less than half an hour away – there’s a lot to love about the small coastal town of Carnoustie. Our latest development Greenlaw Park sits on the northern edge of the town, just a mile from the road that links bustling Dundee to the popular town of Arbroath. With shops, schools, sports facilities and beautiful scenery all on your doorstep, this is a fantastic place to call home.
Carnoustie’s charming traditional high street is home to a selection of shops including a bakery, butchers, Cop-op, SPAR, farm shop, gift shops and independent clothing outlets, putting all essentials within easy reach. There are also several cafés, restaurants and pubs. For a wider selection of shops and hospitality venues, travel 10 miles to Dundee to make the most of its shopping centres, numerous high street retailers and great choice of bars and restaurants.
Carnoustie is famous for its Golf Links, one of the hosts of the Open Championship. Having last hosted in 2018, it’s notoriously one of the most challenging venues in the world. Golf enthusiasts will certainly be happy at Greenlaw Park, but there’s a range of other sports and leisure pursuits to enjoy too. From the sandy beach you can participate in water sports, windsurfing, swimming, fishing and coastal walks, and there’s also a leisure centre and skate park. Also well worth a visit is Barry Mill, a National Trust working water mill surrounded by peaceful walks, just 5 minutes away.
Though the town is small, there are several schools to choose from, plus a nursery. Younger children can attend Woodlands Primary School, Carlogie Primary School or Burnside Primary School, while the local secondary is Carnoustie High School. There’s a wider selection of schools a few miles away in Arbroath and Dundee, and for further education students can attend Dundee & Angus College (8 miles away) and the University of Dundee.
Greenlaw Park is excellently positioned for road travel – just a couple of minutes away, the A92 runs north past dozens of beautiful coastal towns all the way to Aberdeen, and south through Dundee to Kirkcaldy. Carnoustie also benefits from a train station on the Dundee to Aberdeen line, meaning Dundee can be reached in just 14 minutes and Aberdeen in an hour. For travel further afield, the nearest international airport is in Aberdeen, while Dundee Airport operates flights to London and Belfast.
