Arbroath lies 15 miles to the northeast of Dundee and is the largest town in Angus, sitting on the beautiful seaside shores of the River Tay.

This traditional seaside town is known for its friendly people and is full of history and heritage – and there is something for all the family to enjoy. Not to mention the great eateries and bars that are in abundance.

Arbroath has a famous, picturesque harbour and is home to the famous Arbroath Abbey, where, in 1320, the Declaration of Arbroath was signed.

The world-renowned Arbroath Smokie (haddock smoked to perfection over wood fires) brings people to the town from far and wide, and is a cuisine featured on menus across the world.

Angus as an area has a whole host of things to see and do, including the Arbroath Signal Tower Museum, the shore station for the Bell Rock Lighthouse, Britain’s oldest surviving offshore lighthouse.

There’s nothing quite like enjoying the freshest of fish and chips at the harbour or eating at one of the many seafood restaurants.
