035 In the memoirs of Angus and Mearns this is called the "Long Ennell" and is described from an old Account of Montrose as "a great Sand bank lying at the entry of the South Esk. It was very dangerous but the defect was supplied by getting Pilots from Ulishaven (now Usan) or Ferredene." The Bank is still a dangerous one, and of late there has been a Buoy put up on its extreme point which is about 12 chains further out than the end which is bare at Lowest Spring Tides. Since the Buoy has been erected the name is mostly used as the "Annat Buoy"
