St Cyrus National Nature Reserve

Animals & Wildlife Landscapes & Nature See & Do


The St Cyrus National Nature Reserve (NNR) sits amongst grassland, dunes and cliffs just above St Cyrus beach. The Reserve comprises of 92 hectares (230 acres) of coastal habitat in the northern part of Montrose Bay.

The grasslands are protected from the weather by the inland cliffs and sand dunes and this provides a unique landscape and habitat for wildflowers, breeding birds and butterflies.

Take a walk down to the sandy beach and you may get a glimpse of dolphins, whales and seals or spot some of the salmon nets.

The visitor centre is located in the old lifeboat station, with information on the history of the area and what to look out for when exploring.
