A location and former railway junction on the southern outskirts of Arbroath, Elliot lies on the A92 road but the railway now passes through without stopping. Elliot Junction once joined the Dundee-Aberdeen mainline to a railway built by Fox Maule Ramsay, the 11th Earl of Dalhousie (1801-74), to connect with quarries inland, beyond Carmyllie. The junction was the scene of a rail crash on the 30th December 1906, when an express hit a local train in a blizzard killing 22 people. The station here closed in 1967.

Today, the Arbroath Artisan Golf Club is located at Elliot.
