Ancestry Tours of Arbirlot, near Arbroath, Scotland. An old view of the Mill at Arbirlot. Arbirlot is a village in a rural parish of the same name in Angus, Scotland. The current name is a contraction of Aberelliot, meaning mouth of the Elliot. It is located west of Arbroath. The main village settlement is on the Elliot Water. The parish is believed to be the original home of Clan Elliot, which was transplanted in the Scottish Borders to defend the newly-crowned Robert the Bruce's Scotland from English invaders through an intricate network of peel towers. The Elliots joined the clans of Armstrong, Scott, Douglas, Kerr, Nixon, Hepburn and Maxwell in this effort. The Border Reivers and other titles such a Outlaws of the Marshes are most informative about the Elliots and their exploits after leaving the Arbirlot parish.
