‘Immediate’ threat facing coastal homes across Tayside and Fife

Montrose has been singled out as an example of the threat of climate change to the future of links golf in Scotland.
The newly-published Game Changer report suggests golf in Scotland being perhaps the hardest-hit sector as a result of climate-related increases in precipitation as well as coastal erosion arising from storm surges and rising sea levels.
For more than 450 years golf has been played on the links of Montrose but changing seas and coastal erosion is threatening to destroy part of the course which can boast features laid down by Old Tom Morris.
