If you’re a fan of Sir Walter Scott novels or an Arbroath Smokie, then this art print – Auchmithies Last Stand by Douglas Roulston is right up your street! The cliff-top, former fishing village is on the East coast of Scotland, about three miles north east of Arbroath. The derelict harbour in this scene, was once home to many fishing boats in the 1800’s.
Auchmithie became famous for the origin of the Smokie – a gutterd Haddock sold in pairs and smoked in pits buried in the ground – the term is now protected by EU Law to say that if the Smokie is made out-with 8km of the Arbroath Town House, then it isn’t an Arbroath Smokie!
