NARRATIVE ON PRINT - Auchmithie is a place much visited by strangers as well as by Arbroath people. Sir Walter Scott, as Mrs. Walker, then and for long afterwards the landlady of its inn, used to tell, was a visitor to it. He put up at the inn, which afterwards, and till recently, was known as the 'Waverley Inn.'

Robert Burns spent part of a day in Auchmithie. It was on 13th September 1787, when he was on his return journey from his third Highland Tour, which he had made along with his friend Nicol. The poet returned south from Inverness by the coast. After spending two days among his relations at Stonehaven, he went on to Montrose. Continuing his journey, he breakfasted at Auchmithie on the 13th, and then sailed along the coast, examining the caverns, 'particularly the Gairiepot' (Gaylet Pot). The poet landed at Arbroath, where he dinned, and examined the 'stately ruins of Arbroath Abbey.' (Notes by George Hay, 1883)
