House Removals Montrose
The coastal town of Montrose sits between Dundee and Aberdeen. It boasts an attractive town centre, wide sandy beach, and is rich with classic Georgian and Victorian architecture. Montrose was founded in the 12th century and therefore, there are many museums, allowing the history of Montrose to come to life.
The town sits on the edge of a virtually landlocked two-mile-square lagoon of mud knows as the basin, which is a nature reserve and haven for wildfowl and wading birds who love the mud! To the south of the Basin, about a mile out of Montrose, is the Montrose Basin Wildlife centre. The centre has high-powered telescopes, binoculars, bird hides, and remote control video cameras – allowing visitors to see animals in their natural habitat without disturbing them.
