Arbroath station opened in 1848 and retains some Victorian architectural features, including an impressive brick facade and decorative awnings. The station originally opened to link the town with Dundee, and trains to Arbroath include regular services between Dundee to the west and Aberdeen to the east. Other services include hourly trains to Edinburgh and Glasgow Queen Street, as well as East Coast services to London Euston via Newcastle and York. The town centre and the main shopping area of Arbroath is a seven-minute walk east from the station, beyond which you will find the impressive sandstone ruins of Arbroath Abbey. Other attractions are much fishier, though. Arbroath has long been synonymous with fishing, and the Harbour Visitor Centre - an eight-minute walk south from the station - tells the story of the local fishing industry as well as the culinary delicacy known as the Arbroath Smokie, which can only be produced within a four-mile radius of the town.
