Arbroath & Arbroath Abbey

Visit the town of Arbroath, which is probably most famous for its 12th century abbey – the hiding place for Scotland’s “Stone of Destiny”.

About 15 miles (24 km) north of Dundee is the town of Arbroath, which is probably best known for its stunning sandstone cliffs that stretch out on either side of the town. Its 12th century abbey — the hiding place for Scotland’s “Stone of Destiny” when it was taken from Westminster Abbey in 1951, is also worth a visit. Historically, the signing of Scotland’s declaration of independence took place here in 1320, which eventually secured Scotland’s freedom until unification with England in 1707. Today, the beautiful abbey ruins are accessible daily year-round (varying hours by month).
