[Gordon] 20 : Pont's map of Tarbat Ness, Easter Ross

The small town of Arbroath, on the shore of the Firth of Tay, with a few boats indicating the relatively small trading activity (compared to nearby Dundee). Arbroath is so close to edge of Pont's map of Angus that the names are truncated to the right, but the older name of Aberbroth-eake, can just be seen below the town. It is difficult to identify particular buildings within the town, but the Abbey, dating from the 12th century, can perhaps be seen at the top left.
