The quality of bathing water at Broughty Ferry has been deemed “excellent”.
A report by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency revealed that 75 of the country’s 86 designated bathing waters meet strict environmental standards for water quality.
Broughty Ferry Beach and Montrose were graded “excellent” while Monfieith, Carnoustie and Arbroath West Links were deemed “good”.
Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham said: “Protecting and improving our bathing waters is crucial for our environment, for local economies which rely on beach tourism and for people who will be able to enjoy our seaside resorts and beaches over the summer months.
“Partnership working between SEPA, Scottish Water, local authorities, the farming sector, and communities is vital to achieving better results and I am pleased to see that this work has helped to drive forward improvements this season.”
