Arbroath Signal Tower

At Arbroath Signal Tower you can find out about the fascinating history of the Bell Rock Lighthouse and visit the outhouse to have a look at the massive lens of the last manually operated lamp! In addition, the friendly museum displays reflect the past lives of the keepers families and other displays tell the story of Arbroaths fishing heritage. Lots to learn and lots to get little imaginations going!

The museum shop and reception are on the ground floor, WCs are available to museum visitors.

Beside Arbroaths harbour, on the sea front, stands an elegant complex of regency buildings. Now the Burghs museum, the buildings were built in 1813. Until 1955 these buildings formed the shore station and family living quarters for the light keepers on the Bell Rock Lighthouse which lies 11.5 miles out from Arbroath on a dangerous semi-sunken reef. Both lighthouse and shore station were built by Robert Stevenson, founder of the famous dynasty of lighthouse engineers. There, you didnt know that, did you!
