Tour Scotland Video Driving To The Abbey In Arbroath Angus

Tour Scotland video of driving to the Abbey on ancestry visit to Arbroath, Angus, Scotland. This Scottish Abbey was built in 1178 by King William the Lyon to commemorate the death of his friend, Thomas Beckett. It housed monks of the Tironensian order. The Declaration of Arbroath was issued from here in 1320 and it was actually a letter written by a group of Scottish nobles to the Pope in Rome. It was produced in the light of the struggle by the Scots to retain their independence in the face of an assault by England.
