Adventures in Arbroath.

Dad finished work yesterday for his 2 week summer holiday. Today we decided to head out to Arbroath. We went to the harbour and to the Signal House museum.
Then we went up to the Abbey. An Abbey is like a monastery.

This Abbey is where the Declaration of Arbroath was written in 1320.

''for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.''

On the way home we stopped at the Declaration monument.
