Arbroath is famous for the abbey where, in 1320, the Declaration of Arbroath was signed.

The Signal Tower, which was erected 1807-1811 by Robert Stevenson, was the shore station for the Bell Rock Lighthouse. The moveable copper ball at the top of the tower signalled to the lighthouse, 11 miles offshore. The tower now houses Arbroath’s museum.

Arbroath's first harbour was built in 1394 at Danger Point by Abbot John Gedy. It stood until 1706 when it was destroyed in a gale; another harbour was constructed around 1734. The present harbour was begun in 1842 and was completed with the opening of the wet dock in 1877.
