DO YOU LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEA?
15 June 2017
THE old music hall favourite, “I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside,” was penned more than 100 years ago.
It was first recorded in 1909 in an era long before package holidays, when British resorts had it all their own way in luring holidaymakers.
But the appeal of life by the beach has never waned.
These days, many homebuyers are looking specifically for a coastal property and in this region, they are most likely to find it being marketed through the Tayside Solicitors Property Centre.
Whitehall Crescent manager Lynne Hill and her staff are perfectly placed to advise on potential buys along the sprawling North Sea coastline of Angus and Dundee and parts of Fife.
Lynne said: “There is no shortage of property for sale in our coastal towns and villages. And there are definitely buyers who have the seaside at the very top of their wishlist.
“There is no doubting the appeal of having a property within easy striking distance of the beach and the accompanying facilities. We are fortunate to have some of the best in the country on our doorstep.”
Recently, environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful unveiled their latest Scottish Beach Awards and 22 stretches of sand in Angus and Dundee and Fife, including Broughty Ferry, Montrose and Carnoustie, enjoyed recognition for their high standards.
The Awards celebrate clean, well-managed and sustainable beaches. Awarded beaches demonstrate excellent beach management and environmental best practice, ensuring the maintenance of high standards.
An award recognises excellence in beach management, access and facilities, cleanliness, safety and further enhances community life.
Derek Robertson, chief executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “The Scottish Beach Awards set the standard for our stunning coastlines and inland shores – making sure that they are litter free, provide excellent facilities for families and encourage more visitors to our beautiful beaches.
“Going to the beach is a tradition that we want to continue, while protecting this valuable environment. It is vital that we maintain our support for efforts to ensure that the coastline offers a great day out whilst recognising the wider benefits of a good quality environment for people’s health and wellbeing and local economies.”
