Long Description:

This Lucky 7 is centred on the harbour of the fishing port of Arbroath on the North Sea coast of Scotland. The seven waymarks are:

The Commercial fishing port of Arbroath. Although not as active as it once was it still deals mainly in white fish, including the famous Arbroath Smokie.

Marco's Fish & Chip Shop. This pink clad building overlooks the harbour on The Shore.

The Signal Tower Museum. A maritime museum based in the old signal tower to the west of the harbour, giving the history of the Bell Rock Lighthouse out in the North Sea, and Arbroath's fishing heritage.

Anchor Monument. This anchor on a plinth with plaques, commemorates the eight Arbroath fishermen lost at sea in 1887, and the seven lifeboatmen lost in 1911 & 1953.
