Booking is required due to the limited number of spaces available on each tour.

This has been possible thanks to an award of £34,000 from the Arbroath Town Centre Fund, which allowed renovation of the tower and 360 tours to be produced which provide virtual access to previously inaccessible parts of the building. 

Virtual tours in Gaelic, Polish, Romanian and English are available for those who don't want to climb the 70 steps.
