Stunning Coastal Location
There’s nothing like the fresh sea breeze to rejuvenate you after a long week in the office. In Arbroath you’re never far away from the sea, this picturesque town in Tayside is perfectly situated on one of the most scenic coastlines, with red sandstone cliffs stretching up the coast. What could be better than taking an invigorating walk along the town’s attractive harbour when you return home from work or, spending a sunny weekend relaxing on the nearby sandy beach.
The Arbroath Cliffs Nature Trail is an excellent way to explore the surrounding area and if you’re lucky, you might even see one of the area’s native puffins. We recommend picking up a free guide to this unmissable trail at the Local Information Centre, which guides you around 20 of the best views along the route.
If you can pull yourself away from the shore, head inland to explore the rolling countryside that surrounds this pretty town. Nature enthusiasts will love discovering the variety of flora and fauna nearby.

In the town centre, you’ll find a great selection of restaurants and boutique cafés that are perfect for catching up with friends or simply unwinding as you watch the world go by.
Famous Local Delicacies
Arbroath is well-known for being a key fishing centre; simply take a stroll along the town’s active harbour in the morning to see the fishermen set off to find the catch of the day.
It’s no surprise that the area is renowned for its fresh seafood that can be sampled in the many unique, family-run restaurants which line the harbour. In particular, this town is best known for its world famous Arbroath Smokie. This delicacy is made from line-caught haddock that’s smoke cured over smouldering oak chips in one of the local smokehouses. Look out for MM Spink’s fish merchant to discover why the famous chief and food writer Rick Stein described their Arbroath Smokies as "a world-class delicacy".
