I frequently walk thorough this little park overlooking the Abbey from a car park to an occasional work place. Late winter/early spring caught it this afternoon.
Presented to the pope in 1320 to confirm Scotland's status under Robert the Bruce as a state with an ancient constitution, and to reject any English claim of sovereignty, the declaration drawn up at Arbroath Abbey formalised the idea of equality for all. The Declaration of Independence of 1776 was written to reject the British rule.
