THE ARBROATH Abbey Action Group, having already held talks with Historic Scotland and VisitScotland, was pleased to hold a meeting with Angus Council on Friday.

Harry Ritchie, chairman of AAAG, said: “We had a wide ranging, constructive and positive meeting with Mr [Richard] Stiff, the chief executive and Mr McKeown, the strategic director (communities), and were encouraged by what we heard.

“It was clear that these high ranking officials of the council recognise entirely the importance of the Abbey and its potential for attracting visitors to the area.

“We are looking forward now to working in partnership with Angus Council on a variety of fronts.”
