Hi all 😁 and welcome to my entry for this Tina’s challenge — Pick a Place: Arbroath, Scotland.
There were a few places that immediately sprang to mind when the challenge was posted, but one of Tina’s pictures (Arbroath Outer Harbour) made my choice obvious. I’d worked in Arbroath, a few times in my Navy days and my wife had holidayed there as a child. This year we spent a few days there and immediately fell for the place. Arbroath is a place where we were so comfortable, that the thought of “we could live here” was in both our minds.
Arbroath is a picturesque sea side town with a small but busy harbour, and a unique “In Bloom” display. The sandy beach stretches for miles and is a peaceful place to walk no matter the weather. The town is rich in history and the location for the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath at the Abbey.
I hope these pics will give you an idea of the place we saw and fell in love with

Beautiful collection of what appears to be a place I should put on my list to visit! I always enjoy the “Bicycle as floral device” images and have collected a few of these over the years myself. 🙂
Thanks, John 😁 I’d never seen old bikes used in this manner before; I’m glad other places do the same!
Beautiful set of photos. 🙂

Wow Jez, you did it much more justice than I could have! Your beautiful images brought back very fond memories! I think I too could live there-but not in the winter!!
Thank you very much, Tina 😁 I, fortunately, like the beach in all weathers, yes, even snow!
Beautiful photos, lovely post.
I already realised through your p[osts that you had ‘a thing’ for Arbroath. Looking at your gallery of pictures, I can see why.
Thanks, Margaret 😁 It’s a great place!
Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing your fun.
Thanks, Anita 😁
Great post. I still want to live there 😍
You buy a place and I’ll visit Jez 🙂
