Arbroath, Scotland is a pleasant little fishing village within an easy drive north of St. Andrews. It is now somewhat famous for being the home of the Arbroath Smokies, a form of smoked Haddock. In 2004, the European Commission granted protection to that designation, so all Arbroath Smokies, wherever seen, comes from the town of Arbroath. The ancient abbey of Arbroath was built in the 1100s and for many hundreds of years was one of the grandest abbeys in all of Scotland. Arbroath Abbey is also seen as being a major influence on the writing of the Declaration of Arbroath, a declaration of independence, claiming Scotland's independence from England. There is a belief that this document played a role in influencing the writing of the American Declaration of Independence.
