Dundee, Scotland’s fourth biggest city after Glagow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, lies within the eastern central Lowlands. Sitting on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, which flows into the North Sea, Dundee’s strapline is ‘One City, Many Discoveres’, thanks to its scientific heritage and as the location of the construction of the famous RRS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic exploration vessel. Dundee boomed in the 19th Century, thanks to the jute industry, and other major local industries gave Dundee it’s epithet of ‘jute, jam and journalism’. In popular culture, The Dandy, The Beano, Desparate Dan and Oor Wullie also hail from the city. Today, Dundee is home to two universities: the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay Dundee. For a 360-degree view across the city and the Tay Bridge (which replaced the Tay Road Bridge in 1879), visitors should head up to the Law, an extinct volcano. As you might expect, Dundee offers a whole host of restaurants and bars, including the independent Avery & Co eatery and the City Harbour Chinese Buffet Restaurant.
