Day 17/18/19 (21 to 23/5/13) Arbroath
Very strong northerly winds keep me in Arbroath for longer than expected. Met up with a fellow circumnavigator Rob Cowley. We have followed each other from Whitby. Bought a pair of Arbroath Smokies – succulent and flavoursome. Visited the Bell Rock Lighthouse Museum. It was designed by Robert Stevenson and built by John Rennie in two years in 1808 and still stands and is in use today. Arbroath is a very good place to stop and shelter. Off to Peterhead on Monday (27/5/13) when the winds are forecast to change southerly and the dock gates have an early morning opening at 0715.
