The brand-new Arbroath Smokie Trail tells the story of the town’s most famous export – the smokie. While taking you on a journey through some of the best places to enjoy the local delicacy you can hear about some of the finest bits of the charming seaside town to visit, including the Arbroath Signal Tower Museum, Arbroath Harbour, the Fit o’ the Toon, Arbroath Cliffs and Auchmithie.
The Trail was launched on Saturday 11 September as part of Doors Open Day weekend, with Appetite for Angus, Visit Angus, Iain Spink (local ambassador of the Arbroath Smokie) and the ATC on hand to provide visitor information to everyone who came along to try out the new trail.
Sophie Thompson, Food and Drink Coordinator from Appetite for Angus said: “The Arbroath Smokie Trail shines a spotlight on Arbroath, Auchmithie and its maritime culture, helping put Angus on the map as a food and drink destination of choice. The launch event was part of the Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight which is a true celebration of local and regional produce, and a perfect opportunity to bring the community and visitors together to see the story of the world-famous Arbroath Smokie.”
