Arbroath Smokie Trail

The Arbroath Smokie is haddock, smoked over hardwood, using a specific process, in and around the small fishing town of Arbroath in Angus.

The Smokie has a protected status under European law (PGI Status), which means that it can only be called an Arbroath Smokie if it is produced in the traditional specified manner and within a five mile radius of the town.

The Arbroath Smokie is a truly regional Scottish delicacy, which has achieved worldwide recognition with chefs and visitors, throughout the world, for its unique flavour and quality of taste.

Follow the Arbroath Smokie Trail to learn about its history. While in Arbroath, you can enjoy the taste of a smokie in many of the cafes and restaurants or visit one of the local fishmongers and pick up a pair of smokies to take home.
