Persimmon Homes


Carnoustie is the fourth largest town in Angus and it makes the most of its coastal position and its proximity to Dundee. Living by the sea and yet within a shout of an exciting city is the perfect combination for family life and Carnoustie is a popular place to live for those reasons. It’s got a lovely high street with plenty of shops and cafés, good schools, a leisure centre and perhaps top of the list – a famous championship golf course and a sandy beach. From Carnoustie to the centre of Dundee is just 12 miles and better still, there’s a regular train service to make life easier if you need to commute. Dundee is a fabulous neighbour to have for history, culture and leisure, and its regenerated waterfront is home to the famous McManus Art Gallery & Museum, the iconic V&A Dundee and the historic Antarctic expedition ship, RRS Discovery. The city is high up on the list for a shopping trip too!

The coast

Carnoustie is just off the A92, Scotland’s east coast route that heads all the way up to Aberdeen from Dundee. It connects a chain of coastal towns, including Arbroath, Montrose and Stonehaven. Along the way you’ll discover pretty seaside villages, beautiful sandy beaches, castles and nature reserves.

The city

Undoubtedly, Carnoustie is a popular place to live because of the easy access into Dundee. It takes about half an hour to drive into the city and the fastest train service takes just 17 minutes. Once there, Dundee is still an active port as well as a focal point for culture and the arts. With a leading university there too, there’s a thriving and vibrant atmosphere and it’s a wonderful place for a day out.

The countryside

The grand Cairngorms National Park rises up above the east coast. It’s the largest park in the UK and is in the heart of the Highlands. You can be in the foothills in an hour and from there you can choose from all the wonderful walking and hiking routes. It’s a dramatic landscape with high peaks for experienced climbers, secluded lochs for gentler walking and for winter sports, there’s a choice of ski slopes.
