A publication celebrating the delicious delicacy which has put Arbroath on the culinary map was launched today.

The Arbroath Smokie Trail is a free colour booklet providing information about where to eat and buy the world-renowned smokie.

The guide also includes recipes and the centuries-old history of the Arbroath smokie, which is rumoured to date back to the days when the Vikings regularly raided Scotlandís east coast.

It is 10 years since the Arbroath smokie was awarded protected status by the European Commission and itís hoped the new guide will attract even more visitors to the town.

At todayís launch, Councillor Mairi Evans, Angus Councilís economic development spokeswoman, said: ďThis booklet will further raise awareness of Arbroath smokies amongst visitors from near and far, providing tourists with yet another reason to spend time in Arbroath and the surrounding area, while also reminding local food lovers of the famous delicacy produced on our doorstep.Ē

As the Arbroath smokie is protected under European law, it can only be made within three miles of Arbroath harbour.

The Arbroath Smokie Trail will be available at tourist information centres, ACCESS offices, libraries, museums and tourist attractions across Angus from April 5. It will also be available to download from www.tartandayscotland.com.

If you post what you have in your family tree in our genealogy section then hopefully someone will see names they recognise?
