Carnoustie

   CARNOUSTIE, a village and late a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Barrie, county of Forfar, 2 miles (E.) from Barrie; containing 1268 inhabitants. This place is on the eastern coast, about three miles north of Buddon Ness, at the mouth of the river Tay. For some years past, it has been resorted to for bathing, and its smooth, sloping, sandy beach renders it peculiarly adapted to the purpose; the number of visiters has latterly increased, owing to the facility afforded by the Dundee and Arbroath railway, which passes through. The village itself formed the parish, and the inhabitants, both male and female, are for the most part employed in hand-loom weaving, in their own dwellings; their manufacture is principally brown and white linen, for the markets of Dundee and Arbroath. The ecclesiastical affairs were under the presbytery of Arbroath and synod of Angus and Mearns; the church was erected in 1838, and the patronage was in the male communicants. There are now only places of worship for members of the Free Church, Original Secession, and United Secession. A Free Church school has been recently established, to which the privy council made a grant; and there are also a library, and a savings' bank. In the immediate vicinity of Carnoustie, a name signifying "the cairn of heroes," are vestiges of a camp, and several tumuli, where were deposited, it is said, the remains of the Danes who fell under their leader Camus, when vanquished by the Scottish army commanded by Malcolm II.
