Mediaeval Cart Tracks
The parallel grooves on the rocky shore at Whiting Ness are said to be the tracks of carts. In the 12th century the monks quarried red sandstone from the headland at Whiting Ness to build the great abbey of Arbroath, and carted it along these tracks to the site not far away. So much stone was needed that the carts eventually wore down the pair of grooves across the foreshore.
