Dundee is an excellent centre for travelling in Scotland. The other main cities such as Aberdeen, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh are all less than 90 minutes drive away and Inverness and the Highlands are about 2 hours away travelling through magnificent countryside - all superb day trips.

The fame of our city was Jam, Jute and Journalism. Well known for "Keiller" marmalade and famous throughout the world, "Desperate Dan", " Oor Wullie" and The Sunday Post.

Other places of interest in Dundee itself include Discovery Point which is where Captain Scott's ship "Discovery" is berthed, returned to the City where she was built many years ago for her historic voyage to the Antarctic; the HM Frigate "Unicorn", the oldest wooden British battleship afloat; the Mills Observatory, Britain's only full-time public observatory; the McManus Museum and Art Galleries; and excellent Casinos & brand new Leisure Centre. 

Dundee, Abertay and Duncan of Jordanstone Universities have world recognition in Life Sciences, Environmental Research and Creative Arts. Going forward in the 21stC the town has recently approved of a whole regeneration of the waterfront, not least the V & A Museum being the centrefold with a stunning design for an iconic building.

The River Tay on the banks of which Dundee is built, is world famous for salmon fishing. Within the Tayside area, there are many parks, country parks, forest walks, gardens and stately homes to visit, including Glamis Castle, the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Nearby is Kirriemuir, which is J.M. Barrie's birthplace and the site of "The Window in Thrums". It is also the gateway to the beautiful glens of Angus which are a walker's treat!

William Wallace - "Braveheart", was educated in Dundee at the Grammar School by the Monks of Lindores Abbey, and you can visit the site of Dundee Castle, said to be the place where, in 1288AD, he struck the first blow for Scottish Independence.
