Angus Coastal Route
Even in its ruined state you can’t help but feel a sense of awe standing beneath the towering walls of Arbroath Abbey. Founded in 1178, discover the events that have unfolded there, including the role the abbey played in the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath. Afterwards, head to the harbour where you can enjoy a traditional Arbroath Smokie and pop into the Arbroath Signal Tower Museum to learn about the 200 year history of the Bell Rock Lighthouse, built on a semi-sunken reef 11 miles offshore (boat tours to the lighthouse are available too). Kids will be delighted with a turn on Kerr’s Miniature Railway or nearby, Hospitalfield House is a fascinating arts centre where you can enjoy some great events.
