A seaport and market town since the thirteenth century, MONTROSE sits on the edge of a virtually landlocked two-mile-square lagoon of mud known as the Basin. On the south side of the Basin, a mile out of Montrose along the A92, the Montrose Basin Wildlife Centre (mid-March to mid-Nov daily 10.30am–5pm; mid-Nov to mid-March Fri– Sun 10.30am–4pm; £3; Web: www.montrosebasin.org.uk ) has binoculars, high-powered telescopes, bird hides and remote-control video cameras. In addition, the centre's resident ranger leads regular guided walks around the reserve.
