Station celebrates Carnoustie’s heritage

New posters celebrating Carnoustie’s rich heritage have gone on permanent display at Carnoustie Station.

The colourful posters describe Carnoustie’s evolution from a textile community to one of the world’s best known golf centres, as well as listing nine of its top visitor attractions.

They also feature surprising facts, such as golf has been played at Carnoustie since 1560, Carnoustie Hotel houses the world’s largest Rolex clock, and Iain McMillan – the late photographer behind the iconic cover of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album – hailed from the town.

ScotRail is happy to host the posters designed by Carnoustie Community Council, which has adopted the station and maintains floral planters on both its platforms.

Allan Jones, ScotRail’s business manager for Tayside and North-East Scotland, said: “Carnoustie is my home town, and I am delighted that these posters will make its heritage accessible to anyone arriving by train.”

Ed Oswald, of Carnoustie Community Council, said: “We were delighted to accept ScotRail’s offer to adopt the station with floral displays, and it made sense to expand our involvement by providing information on the town’s heritage so as to make new arrivals feel welcome in our midst.”

Attractions included Dibble Tree Theatre, Monikie Country Park, and the working 19th century Barry Mill are all featured on the posters.
