Arbroath Signal Tower Museum

  • Within 1 Hour of the City
  • Outside the City

A highly impressive museum that stands as testament to the region’s sea-faring heritage. Go back in time to find out more about the everyday lives of those who relied on the sea for their livelihoods.

The Signal Tower Museum, located near the town’s picturesque harbour, enables visitors to discover the fascinating story of the Bell Rock Lighthouse designed by the famous engineer, Robert Stevenson (1772-1850), as well as an insight into Arbroath’s fishing and maritime past.

The Signal Tower Museum showcases how the lighthouse was constructed over 200 years ago, creating a marvel of engineering that still stands today as the oldest sea-washed lighthouse in the world. As well as this, the museum shows what life was like for the lighthouse keepers on board the Bell Rock, as well as the experiences of their families back at the Signal Tower shore station.
