Arbroath’s Signal Tower Museum, near Arbroath Harbour, was the shore station and family accommodation for the Bell Rock Lighthouse which stands 11 miles off-shore. The tower was used as a simple method of communication between the lighthouse and the on-shore station. Today, the tower room provides spectacular views over Arbroath and the North Sea, including the Bell Rock Lighthouse on a clear day.
Join ANGUSalive Museum staff on a guided tour up the tower to hear more about the shore station days of the site, the use of the tower, and the shore station’s relationship with keepers on the Rock.
