New Year's Eve in Arbroath 2013/2013 - the town that declared Scotland's independence

The town of Arbroath is a former royal burgh and the largest town in the council area of Angus, Scotland, with a population of about 23,000 residents. Only 25 km from Dundee, it lies on the North Sea coast, being one of the larger fishing ports in Scotland. The New Year's Eve in Arbroath 2012/2013 is a celebration in the middle of a millenniums-old civilization.

The town got its primary fame as the signatory of the Declaration of Arbroath (the declaration of Scottish independence), which is re-enacted every year, attracting hosts of tourists to the event. Other local attractions for visitors spending the New Year's Eve in Arbroath 2012/2013 include the now ruined Arbroath Abbey, built from red sandstone in 1178 by King William the Lion and Kerr's Miniature Railway, the oldest miniature railway in Scotland. The spectacular seafront with the Arbroath Cliffs and the picturesque harbor add the final touch to a desirable Scottish destination.
