Signal Tower Museum

Built in 1813, the building was converted into a museum in 1974 and focuses on Arbroath and the surrounding area. The lighthouse and shore station were built by Robert Stevenson, who was the founder of the famous dynasty of lighthouse keepers. Learn about the history of the Bell Rock Lighthouse and visit the outhouse to look at the massive lens of the last manually operated lamp. The museum also has displays showing the past lives of the keeper’s families and the story of Arbroath’s fishing heritage.

The reception and museum shop are on the ground floor and there is also useful information for ramblers, with information about the many nature trails around Arbroath.
