Dundee town guide
Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city, proud of its sea faring and industrial heritage. The bridges across the Tay dominate the view across the Tay to Fife. It was the original Tay railway that collapsed in the late 19th century with tragic loss of life.
On the bank of the River Tay, Captain Scott's famous Antarctic expedition ship R.R.S. Discovery is berthed - just by the award-winning Discovery Point Visitor Centre.
A short journey by hire car will take you to Glamis castle to revisit the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and birthplace of her daughter, Princess Margaret.
Travel a little further by Kerriemuir and you can visit the birthplace of JM Barrie, creator of Peter Pan, remember to pop into the little washhouse which inspired the Wendy House in the famous story.
Nearby Arbroath is famous for "Smokies", smoked Herring and a real delicacy, whilst other nearby attractions also well worth a visit include the British Golf Museum at St Andrews, which traces the history of British Golf; The Famous Grouse Experience at Crieff for a taste of the Scottish whisky industry; The Grassic Gibbon Centre, which celebrates the renowned Scottish writer Lewis Grassic Gibbon; and Scone Palace near Perth, once the crowning place of Scottish Kings.
