Dundee has a long sea-faring tradition and as Scotland’s fourth largest city, combines a city break with easy access to beautiful coast and countryside.
Dundee is suitable for city breaks, golfers and those that enjoy the great outdoors. Proudly remembering its long maritime and industrial culture, you can explore the port''s extensive textile industry at the Verdant Works or climb aboard Captain Scott''s ship RRS Discovery on the bank of the River Tay. The ship is now berthed at the award-winning Discovery Point Visitor Centre and offers a wonderful day out for the whole family.
Dundee''s burgeoning cultural quarter is home to the popular Dundee Rep Theatre and the Dundee Contemporary Arts centre, while Broughty Castle Museum holds a fascinating display of the life and times of Broughty Ferry.
With a good shopping area, you''ll find a cottage in the Dundee region provides a good base for exploring the maze of shops and local boutiques the city has to offer. The Green Cycle way offers you the opportunity to get to know Dundee on two wheels, with a scenic route around the city circumference via meadows, castles and waterfronts; with the latter undergoing considerable development to provide a first class waterfront environment.
