Signal Tower Ladyloan, Arbroath, Angus, DD11 1PU

    Located beside the harbour, Arbroath Signal Tower Museum celebrates the burgh’s maritime and industrial past.

    Arbroath Signal Tower Museum is located in an elegant complex of regency buildings which, until 1955, housed the shore station and family living quarters for the light keepers of the Bell Rock Lighthouse.
