Down by the Harbour

Arbroath Harbour sounded interesting on paper but turned out to be much more when the sat nav guided us to the seaside sensation. We loved the boats, the aromatic smokeries, the strange tower, the life boat house and the great seaside atmosphere. With good parking, a handy accessible Harbourside loo, and easy wheeling around Arbroath's Harbourside was a hit with us.
Transport & Parking
Very good accessible parking bays right alongside the harbour. In fact once we were out walking we found another set of accessible bays the opposite end of the harbour - so full marks for that! Plenty of buses ply their way along the main road by the harbour.
We liked the easy parking, the smooth surfaces to roll along and the sense of space. There were signposts to help with getting around and clear paths to follow if you ventured beyond the harbour. The views across the inner and outer harbours were great with nothing obstructing vexing from wheelchair height.
An accessible loo was adjacent to the harbour side.
Not applicable in this instance.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We walk along two sides of the inner harbour, the pathway to the signal tower and the back streets toward town. If you arrive and wonder what the peculiar smell permeating the air could then think kippers. The back street have numbers fish mongers who are busy smoking fish!
