Hi all 😁
Today marks the 700th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, a letter sent to the Pope on 6th April 1320, declaring Scotland as an independant nation.
Many of us were intending visiting this historic town today to mark the occasion & on Saturday to march for independance for Scotland. With the current global pandemic, all plans were rightly shelved and the march postponed.
I therefore bring Arbroath to you, so we can all be there in spirit, if not in body.

I’m ashamed to say I’ve never been to Arbroath. This is lovely.
Thanks, Anabel 😊 Would recommend a visit; for a small town, it is packed full of history 😃
Some day when all this is over!
A beautiful selection of images Jez and thank you for bringing Arbroath to us. We’ll be there in spirit today 🙂
Thanks, Xenia 😊

This is geat Jez. Thanks for bringing Arbroath to us when we can’t go to Arbroath. Lovely collection of images to mark such an important anniversary.
Hello Arbroath – What a lovely selection of images! 🙂
Thanks, Ruth 😊 Can’t wait to get back there again when this is all over 😃
It’s a bugger being stuck indoors, isn’t it…
Still getting out once a day with my wife for our daily exercise (masks & gloves at the ready) whilst we’re still allowed. We tend to be out around six in the morning when the place is pretty much deserted 😃
Euan Anderssonn: As we can’t be there to celebrate #DeclarationofArbroath, I’ve written a short post about Arbroath 700 Years on, with lots of pictures from via twitter.com
