Arbroath Travel Guide


You can find traditional boatbuilding in the fishing town of Arbroath. It has several small curers and processors as well, and shops sell the town's most famous delicacy, Arbroath smokies—whole haddock gutted and lightly smoked. The town is also known for its association with the Declaration of Arbroath, a key document in Scotland's history. A few miles north along the coast is the old fishing village of Auchmithie, with a beautiful little beach that you can walk to via a short path. The jagged, reddish cliffs and caves are home to a flourishing seabird population.
