Founded in 1178 for monks of the Tironensian order by King William the Lion, Arbroath Abbey is famous in Scottish history for its association with the Declaration of Arbroath. In this document of 1320, Scotland’s nobles swore their independence from England. A visitor centre provides an insight into the abbey’s history and includes an exhibition on the Declaration. The shop offers a range of products including gifts, books and souvenirs.
