We left Stonehaven at low water ( 1 m under the keel on the way out) and motored all the way to Arbroath as there was no wind at all. The coastline along this stretch is more pretty than spectacular, but with a large ruined castle on a cliff top near Stonehaven. The entrance to Arbroath is surrounded by rocks, and once in there are a couple of tight right angle turns before getting to a perfectly secure inner harbour.
Also here are Tony and Sally on Step Back in Time, and a tall ship.
She turns out to be the Kommandorum, a Baltic trader built in 1891 but now used for adventure holidays.
Arbroath is a lively well kept town, well known for the Arbroath smokies, a smoked haddock with a strong flavour. Lots of places in the town sell them, and so clearly we had to sample some as well.
